I am with SeniorNet in Palmerston North. We are moving from dedicated premises to using rented halls and other venues around PN. Not all of these have an internet connection (or a reliable one) and we need that for presentations, small workshops and one-on-one help sessions, and for admin work. We have successfully used a tethered smartphone, and smartphone hotspot for presentations, but I'm not sure if that solution would work for a class of 6 people learning Gmail (for example). Would a dedicated mobile data/wifi device be a better option? This has to be portable and quick and easy to use - and it needs to work.
Does anybody have some suggestions as to what would work for us, and what provider might have useful options to make this work? (I like some of the data options that 2Degrees offer, is anything else likely to be better)?
