My New Verizon 8800L Jetpack…

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

I’m currently in my 24th year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here


The motorhome is parked at Shady Acres RV Park in Yuma, Arizona. I’ll depart here March 4th.





My new Verizon 8800L Jet pack arrived on Thursday.


My old Verizon 791L Jetpack was 3.5 years old and since my arrival in Yuma, AZ on December 20, 2018 had been struggling with Internet signals. Talking with Verizon support personnel informed me that my primary problem was congested cell towers. Normally fine for the about 80,000 population, the problem becomes the additional 80,000 winter snowbirds, including myself.  🙂 The towers become overworked and Internet signal problems result, eg: slow loading and buffering on videos.


The new Verizon 8800L Jetpack promises faster speeds and stronger signals because it has many more channels than the 791L.

My old 791L was Velcroed to the internal antenna of my WeBoost amplifying system which includes a rooftop antenna…





Here’s the box the new device came in…





And here’s the new device Velcroed in the same location…


In the about 36 hours I’ve had the device, I must say I am most pleased with its operation so far. It was extremely easy to set up and the Internet signal seems noticeably faster and stronger…so far…so good. Let’s hope it continues in this manner.


An added plus, Verizon is giving me a $33 trade-in on my 791L.  🙂

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

Forecast for today is sunny and 79 degrees.


Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
