NetGear Hot Spot Set Up

I am interested in buying a Netgear hotspot and I have the proper ATT plan which includes hot spot coverage, but the NetGear page says I need to buy a SIM card from ATT to activate... is this true? Do I need to purchase a SIM card and additional plan to use this hot spot?

Hello @ssolis, we are here to answer any questions you have on our Netgear hotspot router.


We'd like to provide detailed information about the Nighthawk LTE Mobile Hotspot Router. This information is correct. You will need to purchase a SIM card and data plan.


MicroSD is the compatible memory format for the Netgear device. 


Mobile Hotspot Routers require Mobile Share  or DataConnect.


We have four option of deals for PREPAID data only plans fit for your needs.


The links above will provide more details of what our plans offer.  


Please let us know if you have additional questions.
