Will a GOTSPOT work with any device?

There are plenty of times when you need Wi-Fi when it isn’t there. Sure, there’s a lot you can do with your phone. But, there are tons of devices that don’t have cellular capabilities. Take streaming boxes, for example. Yes you can “cast” using your phone if you don’t have Wi-Fi, but it’s better to use a dedicated streamer and leave your phone free for your use.

No matter what you do out in the field, there are going to be times you wish you had a laptop to do it. That’s why all the large vehicles today have laptop desks built in. It’s a very common problem. There are tons of other devices, too, like wireless cameras and security devices that need Wi-Fi access. Putting cellular in them would just be too expensive.

That’s why the GOTSPOT exists

The GOTSPOT from Solid Signal is more than just a hotspot. It’s a solution. Traditional hotspots work with one device at a time and take a lot of setup. GOTSPOT is ready to go, and lets you use up to 8 devices at the same time. Regular hotspots have limited data plans. GOTSPOT gives you a choice of several extremely generous data plans for very fair prices. GOTSPOT will help you take care of business.

Yes, it works with practically any device

If your device has Wi-Fi built in and it’s been made in the last decade, GOTSPOT will work with it. It supports Wi-Fi devices all the way back to 802.11b, which hasn’t been common in 15 years. It also supports 802.11g and 802.11n, which are very mature standards that can deliver speeds up to 100Mbps to your equipped devices. Newer versions of Wi-Fi deliver faster speeds, but the older standards are more compatible and match up well with the cell service you’re likely to get.

In short, if it has Wi-Fi, it’s going to work with GOTSPOT. And connection is just as easy as it is with any other Wi-Fi router. Connect once and your device will remember the SSID and password. There’s nothing to it!
