CDL is now lending mobile hotspots! What are hotspots?  They are small, battery powered devices that provide internet access to smartphones, tablets, computers and other wireless devices through a cellular network.  Hot spots can be used in a car, home or anywhere else.  Service is dependent on the availability of the TMobile network where the hotspot is being used. Up to 10 devices can connect to the hotspot at one time and will provide unlimited internet service.
