Unlimited (9GB 3G speed) Data Hotspot Rental for China
While WiFi, especially free WiFi, has many positive aspects, it is often inconvenient to find and is never a secure way to access the internet. In fact, 80% of all data breeches occur using free or paid hotel WiFi. Our MiFi Hotspot Rental for China offers virtually unlimited, secure internet access for travelers to China. Simply turn on the MiFi, enter the password on your phone, tablet or any other WiFi enabled device and you and up to 5 other users can simultaneously browse the internet.
The service includes 9GB of data at 3G speeds which is enough for the vast majority of travelers. Please be aware that the Chinese Government does not allow access to Google, Facebook or Twitter along with many other social media sites. The MiFi hotspot is portable, is the size of a smartphone and weighs just a few ounces.
