Read Member F470953 GAIL RUSSELL's Review of the Tech Connect+ Sprint MIFI Plan Below:

Signed up for FMCA Tech Connect+ and taking advantage of the Sprint Unlimited Hotspot Plan

I would say I started with Hotspot Authorization at 11:30AM, it is now 8PM and my Hotspot Battery is at 32%.

I am very pleased with both the Franklin R-910 Hotspot and the Sprint unlimited data plan. Everything is working flawlessly. I am in a rural area, 30 miles from the nearest city (Buffalo, NY) and I have had enough signal strength to do everything I wanted to do on my computers & tablets and ereaders, fast & flawlessly.

I found the Hotspot intuitive to use and easy to operate. I even liked the way it felt with its rubber armour coating! After 8-1/2 hours of continuous running, the Hotspot feels cool to the touch all over. If I had to tell one Hotspot fault, it would be the display screen font type is very small, making it hard to read.

Tomorrow I will play around with more of my WiFi capable devices and let you know what I think. The unlimited data plan is just great to have! No more running to public hotspots for me like when my old data plan was getting near its limit. I am in Computer Nerd Heaven!

Many RV travlers derive additional savings by cooking some or all of their own meals, the survey found.

More than half of the survey respondents said they save $20 to $50 a night by staying in a campground or RV resort. An additional 25.7 percent indicated they save $50 to $100 per night. Forty-five percent of survey respondents said they save even more by eating only dinner out, while 32.3 percent cook all of their own meals.

“Our latest survey indicates that people still want to get out and enjoy some time off, but I think they are also trying to stretch their dollar as far as they can,” said Brian Schaeffer, executive director of the Texas Association of Campground Owners. “The camping lifestyle is giving them the options that they’re looking for in that regard.”

The April survey, conducted through, generated 614 responses involving the cost of RVing, percentage of meals out and fuel costs, Schaeffer said. Among the survey’s findings:

Of the respondents, 92 percent said staying in a campground or RV resort is cheaper than staying in a motel or hotel, by the following dollar amounts:

  • $40 to $50 per night – 32.3 percent.
  • $50 to $100 per night – 25.7 percent.
  • $20 to $40 per night – 25.7 percent.
  • I don’t save any money. I simply camp for the experience – 7.2 percent
  • More than $100 per night – 5.5 percent
  • $10 to $20 per night – 3.6 percent.

  • 32.3 percent cook all of their own meals.
  • 15 percent eat out half the time.
  • 6.8 percent only eat out for breakfast.
