To get Internet access I will need to use mobile data, should I buy a new handset and use as a hotspot or a dedicated mobile hotspot ?
The reason I don't want to use my 2D mobiles if I buy data on my handset and am not at the place we are staying my wife won't have access. I figure we buy a 3rd device
It would seem the most cost effective option is to buy a mobile hotspot e.g. Telecom E5520 for approx $99 as it is HSPA+ [21Mbps] to get a handset that can do HSPA+ will cost twice as much
But then I don't know whether I will get any benefit from HSPA+ in Golden Bay ! [even TCNZ state the average is 4Mbps so there maybe no advantage in having a device that can do more than 7.2Mps ?
Do the dedicated hotspots have better strength Wifi or 3G than a handset ?
