Unboxing and Review of Verizon 4G LTE Ellipsis Jetpack MHS800L hotspot

This is a unboxing and complete review including speed test of the Verizon pay-as-you-go ellipsis 800L jetpack hotspot device.

I ran a speed test outside from my car using an ipad, here are the results: Download was 14.42 Mbps and upload was 1.7 Mbps. So its clear that you really lose a lot of signal strength when indoors.

Speeds vary according to area. Outdoor use is faster than indoor use. Indoor use should require an outdoor antenna for best results.

Keep this device at least 10mm away from your body. Emits radio frequency.

Outdoor antenna:

4g lte

  • hello i'm from haiti i have a verizon ellipsis mhs800l ,, and i use a natcom sim card, when i turn on my rooter it displays no avalaible service, i don't know what to do, can you help me

  • Mbs is megabytes per second mbps is megabits per second 1000 megabits per second is around 125 mb per second

  • I bought one on ebay used but in very good condition how ever all I can get is please wait no name no password

  • These are crap! I had 2 fail within 6 months! They were replaced, and 1 has totally failed, the other is acting up! All of this within 1 year! They constantly loose connection to the net. And they take forever to recharge. After they loose connection you have to shut down totally and reboot, AND it is slow to reboot and re-connect to the net. I live within 3/4 of a mile of a large Verizon tower. I obtained these things to "improve" my wi-fi connection- it has not worked out! Now, I have a wi-fi hotspot on my smart phone and that is lightening quick and never looses connection to the net. Soooooo, think again if you are considering these devices.

  • I purchased a Verizon ellipsis jetpack but no sim card came with, is there anywhere I can purchase one?

  • I'm not going to lie when I get something new I just throw stuff everywhere lol then I'm like "I have to clean up!" Great video helped alot!

  • Verizon's New Unlimited Data plan announced on February 13, 2017 has limits of 10GB of 4G high speed mobile hotspot/tethering that is reduced to 3G speeds and can be slowed down while on congested towers. They're not the type of internet plan most RVers are seeking to replace their home internet solution.

  • I was told to buy the verizon elipsis jetpack MHS815 to serve as a WiFi hotspot at our home in the sticks with no DSL available. This device will be used (mainly) during the day to send/receive emails for a home business in the basement office with a window sill. Hopefully, it can also be used to stream TV shows & movies in the evenings upstairs. Question: With satelite already a poor option for speed and with no DSL option, is this WiFi hospot a good purchase for all intents and purposes? Thank you for the review!

  • Excellent informative video. I suspect the relatively slow speeds you're getting with the jetpack may have to do with the traffic on the tower. I got an MHS800L a couple of months ago and got 20 – 30 Mbps (download) most times, with at least one time in the 10 Mbps range.
