Is it worth having WiFi on a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or RAM Truck? My story.

I thought I had had an epiphany when I realized I could get WiFi on the truck. My daughter could do her virtual school virtually anywhere! I signed up, and as an existing AT&T customer and already paying exuberant amounts of money for two cell phones. I figured $20 a month for their unlimited plan on the truck didn’t seem that bad. We could go up the mountains of Wyoming on a school day and all would be good. Or could it?

I had some trouble with the AT&T website where their payment page wasn’t working so I ended up having to call the helpline. Other than that, the set-up process was fairly easy and straightforward and within 10 minutes I had Wifi in the truck.

Here in certain spots of Wyoming, cell service is limited, and one would assume because the service is provided by cell service, you can expect the same kind of results. Don’t expect to have service on the mountain unless it’s normally somewhere you’d normally get cell service. It is worth it to keep kids or passengers entertained if you’re staying on a main stretch of road. Several devices can be added at once and everyone can play games, watch movies, or do school work at the same time.
