All digital marketing professionals, myself included, travel with a full backpack of gear that includes laptop, tablet, smartphone, travel mouse (touchpads suck) and a whole bunch of different extension cords and power adapters.
However, there is one piece of gear that I’ve yet to see anyone sport other than myself…a portable Wifi Extender.
Roughly 50% of the time when I fire up my laptop, I get less than 5 bars of signal. I already know that I’m going to get far less of a pipe when I’m not in my home office and that my laptop is going to have far less pickup than my supercharged desktop. However, less than 5 bars make work other than basic web use to be almost intolerable.
