This week, my Beloved husband left his mobile hotspot for me to use at home.  I finally have affordable internet at home.  That has been one of the glitches with being off the grid.  Most internet servers require electricity.  Yes, there are still the old fashioned dial-up ones out there, but they have one problem.  While the service itself is low priced, the cost of a phone line more than doubled the cost.

We now use the prepay MiFi device from Virgin Mobile.  It costs $50 a month with unlimited usage.  Unlike most mobile devices that shut off your service when you have used up your allotted data each month, this one just slows the data speed.  We love it!

This is exciting to me because now I will have a way to post to the blogs more often.
