Use of Ellipsis 7 as hotspot

Hello,

I'm considering buying and using the Ellipsis 7 as a hotspot for my laptop.  It's cheaper than the Jetpack ($10mo vs $20mo).  I've been using my phone as a hotspot ... it works fine but I can't use the phone when I'm online.  Any comments or suggestions about the Ellipsis use as a hotspot vs the jetpack would be appreciated.  A designated wifi (comcast, etc) is not an option.

chicagoreader,

We're glad to hear you express your interest in the Verizon Elipsis 7! Both this and the jetpack device are great options and I trust that you will benefit from using one or the other.

In this particular scenario, if you are simply looking to purchase a device to be a dedicated hotspot, the jetpack will work more efficiently and will allow you to connect multiple devices at one time while on 4G LTE. To view more information on our jetpack click here http://vz.to/1nSUfBU
