Verizon Wireless Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot 890L


It's very similar in the rest, however, offering very fast and reliable 4G connection (at least where I tested it) and a very helpful LCD that shows all you want to know about your network and wireless connections at a glance. It also shares the same...

The Verizon Wireless Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot 890L is good-looking, well-designed, and offers a very fast 4G connection to up to 10 Wi-Fi devices. The router is also affordable for those willing to sign a new contract.

The Verizon Wireless Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot 890L is comparatively bulky and has relatively short battery life for its size. It comes with limited and expensive data plans.

The Verizon Wireless Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot 890L is one of the best choices for travelers who can afford Verizon's limited and expensive data plans.

"Do not waste your time with this product!!!!"


I spent days trying resolve issues around this product. When calling for support I kept getting sent from company to company, each one blaming the other for the problem. Tech support at Verizon finally discovered that there were a lot of customers...

It works on some sites.

Wouldn't let me sign in to the site that I needed to pay my bill or to several other sites with SSL protection. Tech support was sketchy in knowing and then following up on the problem.

"Disconnects CONSTANTLY!! - Slam dunk it into the Trash!"


Maybe somthing from Sierra Wireless? The Novatels pretty bad too, but this is even worse!

Looks nice.

Every 30 minutes the network side will disconnect. would be bad enough if you could log into the browser and hit connect, but that invariably fails. You then have to pull it down, yank the battery, and reboot. FW update button connects to NOTHING!

"it can be better"


1. Horrible display - Impossible to see screen in daylight. 2. Does not hold an internet connection more than 10 minutes. 3. Plug does not stay in. 4. design is not cool One day, i use this device to have a vedio meeting, but it suddenly disconnect in...

i don't like this one because bad experience happened to me when using it.

i had used this unit and also huawei E589 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot, perhaps i'm more familiar with HUAWEI System, the HUAWEI E589 4G Hotspot is more user-friendly than 890L. Regarding the speed, HUAWEI E589 could support higher speed.

"Horribly annoying, but otherwise terrific!"


An extra brick to lug around! This is great to use at home as a backup device. We purchased it to use our laptops on long car trips and it is horrible for that use. It requires electric -- must be plugged in at all times because it has such a short...

Very Fast 4G Fast Internet Speed. Good wireless reach.

Frequently drops connection and has to be restarted often. Short battery life (less than 2 hours of usage). Mini USB connection on device does not click (like a phone jack) and plug constantly falls out.

"Abysmal - Worst Product of the Year"


This device is a nightmare. Drops connection every 10 to 15 minutes and must be power cycled to regain connection. Does not stay plugged in because plug keeps coming out of device. Battery life is dreadful. 4G connection might seem good - but it's...

Makes a nice coaster.

1. Horrible display - Impossible to see screen in daylight.
