As you might guess with the amount of posts that I share both here on dadofdivas.com and on all of the social networks that I share within, having a strong online network is important to me no matter where I go.
I am the type of person that likes to keep a clean house (metaphorically). When I go on vacation, even when my out-of-office message is on, I still feel that it is necessary to check my email so that I do not come back to hundreds and hundreds of messages as when this happens this feels to me as an insurmountable task to get out from under.
This is why I was so happy to have NETGEAR send me one of their new NETGEAR Unite Pro devices. When I was at the Dad 2.0 conference, I met with the folks from Netgear and found that this device connected to the ATT network which is what I used for my mobile carrier already, so jumping to this also made a lot of sense.
Outside of that though, what I loved about this device is that it is your own personal WIFI hub that you can take with you no matter where you go. So as long as there is an ATT signal, you can get a fast paced WIFI signal throughout your travels. This was great for my business travel for certain, but also for my personal travel.
No matter if it was a long car ride or a trip on an airplane, this WIFI hub was perfect. I could easily have the kids use this and keep them actively engaged.
This worked perfectly recently on a trip with the family as we traveled to visit family out of State. The trip was going to take us about 3.5 hours and while the kids did bring activities to do in the car, I decided to connect up the and simply let the kids hook in a new that we had in our home. The kids were ecstatic and completely interested in the idea of having WIFI in the car. My oldest was super-excited to start taking pictures with her and then share the pictures immediately through her Instagram account. My youngest, on the otherhand was more interested in YouTube cat videos (go figure).
All of this being said, I have to say that the device itself was so small and inconspicious. It was was a snap to setup. We tend to have a pretty strong ATT wireless and data signal in and around our town, so it was nice to have this here. However, as mentioned, with the business and personal travel that we do, this makes things even more convenient!
The only thing that I hope or wish is that this product could be expanded for all of the other people outside of the ATT Wireless family as this product works so well and could benefit so many families!
