My girlfriend lives in a rural area of eastern NC (near Kinston). I'm getting her a laptop and am wondering about getting her a hotspot for internet access. She doesn't presently have a computer and gets on the web through her phone. If she can get on the web with her phone, will she be able to do the same with a portable hotspot? I'm just learning about these things so please take that into account in your advice and explanations. ;) Thanks

    @Elwood Edwards Freedompop uses the Sprint network so to find if a hotspot would work for your girlfriend you need to check the Sprint data coverage map. Sprint data coverage in rural areas is typically not very good to non-existent.

    Go to the above link, click on the data tab and type in the zip code for your girlfriends location. Please keep in mind that the "free" Freedompop data plan is for 4G LTE only. If Sprint only has 3G coverage in the location you would need to subscribe to one of the paid data plans.

    Hey there @Elwood Edwards , she should be able to get web on the go with a hotspot. Getting a new computer is also nice too, this is a good time to right now thanks to that Back to School season! All the major laptop companies have started their back to school sales already!
