With a new mobile hotspot called the Alcatel Linkzone 2 and a new service to go along with it, Boost Mobile hopes to help customers stay connected when they are on the go. This week saw the launch of the device and service, which came as average fuel prices across the country started to decline. Additionally, the new device and service won’t be overly expensive.
Following the acclaimed prior versions, Boost Mobile is first introducing the Alcatel Linkzone 2. Of course, that is primarily a mobile hotspot. But it also works with car chargers and is designed to perform well in a car. In actuality, it comes with a 5V/2A US-ready charger as well as a USB Type-C connection.
The new hotspot not only allows connections from up to 16 devices at once. It has a full 2GB of ROM and 1GB of RAM to guarantee slick device control. According to Boost Mobile, the device has adequate throughput to stream movies to all of the linked devices. Additionally, there is game streaming and other content.

A NEW ALCATEL LINKZONE 2 MOBILE HOTSPOT: WHAT PLAN IS BOOST MOBILE ANNOUNCING? Of course, a mobile hotspot is useless if there is no service to use it with. As a result, Boost also provides plans with mobile hotspot data starting at just $15 per month. Customers who choose that receive 2GB of 5G and 4G LTE data at the lowest tier.
For those who require a little bit more, the carrier also provides 5GB, 7GB, and 35GB contracts at higher levels. Each of those costs $20, $25, and $50 each month. Users won’t have to worry about running out of data because they can stay connected while navigating or amusing themselves.

Although it is currently only $0.99, the hotspot gadget has a starting price of just $49.99. Additionally, some reviewers on the Boost Mobile page even asserted that they had connected game consoles without any problems, albeit this claim should be viewed with some caution.
