Verizon Wireless Jetpack #Giveaway #VZWSG #Samp

As you may know, I’m a Verizon Wireless Savvy Gourmet blogger. I am one of the lucky Verizon ambassadors that gets to giveaway a Verizon Wireless Jetpack. The Jetpack is a mobile hotspot so that you can carry your internet service with you no matter where you go. The Xyboard that I have been given to try out has mobile hotspot on it and it’s a feature I will most definitely miss. My husband’s iPad doesn’t have wifi on it so he is always counting on me to bring my Xyboard in order to provide him with internet access. I have barely found anywhere that I couldn’t use my Verizon Wireless service so far. The only place I’ve had problems with it was in the Wisconsin Dells. It is so awesome to travel with and am definitely thinking of looking into a Jetpack after my service is up.
Here’s some more info on the Jetpack.
