How Does Event Radio Rentals Work?

<< (Page 2 of 4: Event Radio Rentals Review) >>

aircard-rental-processLike most mobile broadband rental companies, there are 4 steps:

  1. Order Your Broadband Card (of Device)
  2. Receive in your mail via courier
  3. Install software, plug in your broadband card, use it
  4. Return it via a prepaid mailing envelope.

The process doesn’t change much from provider to provider.

Instead, the major differences come down to the company, how much it costs, the underlying network provider (speed & coverage) and what devices you can get.

 

Speed & Coverage

Event Radio Rentals relies mostly on Sprint’s mobile broadband network. To a lesser extent, they also rely on Verizon and AT&T’s 3G networks. As such, they inherit their speed and coverage:
