If secure, reliable access to WiFi is already available where Claris Companion will be used, or your loved-one plans on using more than 2GB of data (about an 4 hours of video calling a month), then “Claris Companion WiFi” option is probably the most cost-effective choice.

 

If your loved-one doesn’t have access to the internet or WiFi in their home, or would like the freedom to use Companion outside the home, then “Claris Companion 4G” is the right choice because the internet data plan is included in your monthly service fee. In fact, if your loved one is currently paying for internet or WiFi access, it may be more cost effective to cancel that service and select Claris Companion 4G instead. Please check the Verizon coverage map in the US and the Rogers coverage map in Canada to ensure connectivity in your loved one’s area.
