I may be way "out there" with this thought, but please bear with me. Last time we traveled, took our iPad with us, hoping to use the DISH Anywhere system to keep caught up with our favorite shows. Place we stayed had horrible wi-fi, try as it may, the iPad just could not deliver the content from home. Am wondering if a Verizon Jetpack (ask that because I have Verizon Wireless phone service) hot spot would give me enough "juice" to have a reliable Internet connection to make the DISH Anywhere system work? As I read their website, one can order the service in manageable units, viz., weekly or monthly, so there should not be a lot of unnecessary service cost when at home. My iPad is "only" wi-fi, so would need the hot spot to provide the better Internet connection via LTE. This all assumes the economics of a personal hot spot with occasional service costs would be less than upgrading to a full LTE capable iPad, and the associated data plan usage. Any thoughts welcome.
