Hot Spots

A mobile hotspot is a small device that allows you to connect your computer, phone or other device to the internet while at home, at work, or anywhere there is a cellular signal. 

You do not need an existing internet service account to use hotspots. 

Service is provided by Verizon and coverage includes anywhere in the United States that Verizon covers.

You can connect multiple devices at one time. 

The Mobile Hotspot Lending Program is being supported, in whole or in part, by federal award number CFDA # 21.027 awarded to the City of Alexandria by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
