Unlimited MiFi Mobile Hotspot for Europe
The MiFi, also known as a mobile Wi Fi hotspot, is a portable device that creates your own personal, personal and secure hotspot that works anywhere in Europe plus a few other destinations including Australia, Thailand and Indonesia. The hotspot is ready to go. Simply charge it up, turn it on and you will have instant connectivity. The hotspot includes a data SIM card with Unlimited high speed data service*. The SIM lasts for up to 30 days. If your trip is longer or if you need even more data, you can purchase an additional Data SIM Card for your new wireless hotspot. You can connect up to ten devices at the same time including smartphones, tablets and PCs. This is an extremely effective solution for travelers who have multiple devices and want to stay in touch during their trip to Europe. Popular travel apps include Skype, Google Maps, WhatsApp and Google Voice Translator and of course there are many others. Purchasing a MiFi is an ideal alternative to renting an International Hotspot for travelers who travel to Europe more than once a year or for trips that last at least several weeks. In fact, it is less expensive to own a MiFi device if your trip is more than 3 weeks long.
*Up to 12GB of data service. This is considered "unlimited" in the telecom business and in accordance with Fair Usage guidelines but Cellular Abroad feels compelled to specify that it is 12GB of data.
The MiFi is portable and easy to use. Simply turn on the device, connect with your wifi enabled device, enter the security password and you are ready to go. In addition, since you own the MiFi, you will only pay for the usage on the days that you use it.
Unlike most hotels or public hotspots, which are not secure, the MiFi uses the most up to date security encryption, assuring that your personal information and communication is safe during your travels.
This solution is significantly less expensive than 3G data roaming with a US or Canadian carrier and less expensive than what hotels typically charge for wifi.

European Hotspot FAQs
What can I do with a European hotspot?
If you need a convenient, secure and affordable way to have data connectivity for your smartphone or tablet, a European hotspot is the easiest way to do so and is also much less expensive than roaming with Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T or other carriers. In addition, since the service is pay as you go, you do not risk incurring a huge roaming bill.
Why don't I just use wifi?
WiFi is typically slow, never secure and seldom convenient. If you rely on apps such as Google Maps, it is not feasible to track down a Wi Fi connection. When you are on the go is typically when you need to access data the most and if there is one thing that can spoil a trip is not having immediate access to the internet, particularly when you are trying to research a restaurant or buy museum tickets online.
How to I activate my hotspot?
Turn it on, enter the password and connect!
Can I add additional credit?
You will have to purchase an extra SIM card in order to have more data.
Does the credit expire?
The data credit is good for 30 days from the day of activation.
How much data do I get and will it be enough?
You get 12GB of data which is plenty for 99% of all travelers.
How far in advance should I order?
You can order a data SIM card at any time prior to your departure or even during your trip. However, if you order it 2 weeks or more before your trip, you can take advantage of the free shipping.
