We decided on our WiFi system. Phoenix, thanks for the info, it was very helpful. The system is the "WiFi Ranger Connect-RV Pack. It includes the 4620i MiFi, MiFi Ranger Mobile, Wifi Ranger Go and all installation hardware. Our Airstream dealership will do the install. We wanted this system to take advantage of the 20GB. With the extreme range, it should keep the wife happy. She lives on the internet.

Now, we just hope all this arrives before picking up the Airstream. We pick-up our Airstream on Monday, finally.

Thanks again.

Freedomrider, just reread this thread from the beginning to end and noticed your comment about traveling in Canada. See FAQ response from the Millenicom site:

"Can I use this out of the country? -- Never use your Millenicom mobile broadband service outside the United States. Whenever near an International border (within 20 miles) please turn off “roaming” so that it does not pick up neighboring towers. Failure to do so may generate enormous usage fees. Seriously, the fees are enormous."

Sorry for not noticing this before. You may wish to purchase a separate Canadian prepaid hotspot device or service plan when traveling in Canada.

Canadian service is considerably more expensive that US service. Your choices are limited: Bell (CDMA) or Rogers (GSM).

Depending on where you travel, such as in northern Ontario (the 807 area code), you may find that Rogers does not have coverage. For example, we were in Sioux Lookout, which is 90 km north of Dryden. The only cell service there is T-Bay Tel (who just happens to own all of the 807 area code), and it is CDMA only up there.
