Mobile Wifi hotspots?

Anybody have any mobile wifi hotspot solutions that they've tried/tested with success? Taking a 4 day RV trip in a few weeks and need to stay connected/upload our trip updates from the road. Seen a few places just searching google, but would love to know if anybody can vouch for something they've used before

if you are an at&t customer, then every McDonalds and Starbucks is a parking lot full of uploads. for free, and connects automatically.

other than that, pretty much every motel/hotel has an open wifi spot available from the parking lot. drive in, update, stretch the legs, and hit the road.

best of luck on your travels.

The Novatel Jetpacks from Verizon are awesome, but require a 2 year contract. Great coverage, super fast 4G service where available. I have one and they are quite useful.
