Welcome to our forums! WiFi hotspots are a great way to make sure you’ve got a secure WiFi connection while you’re on the go, so you don’t have to rely on public WiFi during your visit. I can certainly understand wanting to make sure you’re able to utilize WiFi while you’re here in the U.S., as it’s a much more secure option.
In regards to whether or not you’ll need a contract, that can vary, depending on the device you’d like to purchase. There are some that require a contract, however, some can be prepaid, offering you some additional flexibility. If you’d like to see the mobile hotspots we have available for purchase, they can be found here. If you have any additional questions regarding which device would work best for you, I’d recommend speaking with a Blue Shirt at your store during your visit, and I’m optimistic they’ll be able to address any additional concerns you might have.

There are some misconceptions regarding portable WiFi.
Portable Wi-Fi still needs an internt connection to work. And you will have to pay for that.
As @SeanM-BBY related you can purchase pre-paid servcie.
Verizon Ellipses is one such
Verizon offers a number of pre-paid plans. At the high end $70 a month for unlimited.
