Ladybug Wireless is a smaller provider that offers mobile hotspot service. It places a lot of emphasis on offering customer service and technical support, assisting with a wide range of issues from updating your device’s firmware to changing your password. This makes it a good choice for people who are interested in switching to a mobile hotspot, but might be nervous about dealing with new technical issues.
Ladybug Wireless has a wide variety of plans, as well as the option to operate on several different nationwide networks. Plan pricing depends on both the network you connect to as well as the amount of data you get per month, which can mean a lot of variability in price. Its starter packages also include the purchase of a modem, making for some very high upfront costs.
Ladybug Wireless does have a BYOD (bring your own device) option, which provides a way to get around these upfront costs, provided your device is compatible with the network you want. Check out our list of the best mobile hotspots for help picking out your own equipment.
One of the biggest downsides to Ladybug Mobile when compared to other 4G LTE providers is the limited data on its plans. That said, its data caps are still considerably higher than those offered by satellite providers like HughesNet and Viasat, so many internet users will never have to worry about hitting them. If you use video streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, however, you can burn through data surprisingly quickly.
