Best mobile hotspots in 2021

As good as the best mobile hotspots are, you might wonder why you need one. After all, if you carry around a smartphone — and there’s a pretty good chance you do — you already tote around a cellular hotspot in your pocket. Why add a standalone hotspot device?

The reality is, while a phone can be perfectly adequate as a hotspot for occasional use, there are plenty of instances where a standalone hotspot makes perfect sense. Your phone is often busy doing other things — making phone calls, sending and receiving email, catching up on Slack, Twitter, or the latest news — which also require access to a cellular network. If you don’t want the potential disruption or bandwidth limitations of your phone’s hotspot, a standalone hotspot can provide additional connectivity. And if that smartphone is your personal device, you may not want to burn up your cellular data allocation for anything other than personal use. That’s why a mobile hotspot is a very important tool for mobile workers and frequent business travelers — at least when you can freely move about again.
