Unlimited Data WiFi Hotspot Rental for Israel (4G LTE speeds)
Having WiFi access in Israel is not always an easy option for travelers. Often, you are confined to one location, like your hotel, nor are you guaranteed a fast connection and you will virtually never get a secure Wi Fi connection. Our mobile hotspot rental for Israel offers unlimited and secure high speed WiFi connectivity anywhere you go in Israel. Since the hotspot is mobile, you can literally turn it on, put it in your pocket or purse and have your own personal Wi Fi connection whether you are in a hotel, driving in a car or walking down the street. The hotspot works with any device that offers Wi Fi connectivity. In addition, you can connect up to 10 devices simultaneously. This is the perfect solution for the business traveler who needs reliable, fast and secure Wi Fi as well as tourist who need the convenience of having Wi Fi, any time and everywhere. In addition, since you can connect multiple devices, you can share the hotspot with anyone you want. Simply give them the password and they cannot connect.
Please note that while the standard jargon in the telecom world dictates that the service is "unlimited," there is a Fair Usage Policy associated with the service and if you exceed a certain amount of usage, the speeds will drop to 2G. Having said that, if your rental is between 1-14 days, you will have 10GB of data at 4G speeds, assuming that you are in an area of Israel where 4G LTE speeds are available (typically in cities). If you rental is up to 30 days, you will have 25GB of data at 4G LTE speeds. If your rental period is over 30 days, you will have 25 GB of data for each 30 day period (ex. A 31 day trip will have 50GB of data to use). No matter how you slice it, this is a lot of data and unless you are a large group of travelers, constantly connected or are streaming videos for many hours per day, it is safe to say that you will unlikely encounter issues of reduced speeds. The carrier is Orange, the largest cellular carrier in Israel.
|Rental Rates per day/week|
|1-14 days||15-21 days||22-28 days||29-42 days||Up to 4 Months|
Our MiFi Rental for Israel offers (virtually) unlimited 4G data service. If your trip is up to 14 days, you will have 10GB of data at 4G LTE speeds. If your trip is up to 30 days, you will have 25GB of data at 4G LTE speeds. Each 30 day period above and beyond 30 days will have 25GB of data at 4G speeds. In the unlikely event that you reach these allotments, you can still navigate but your speeds will be reduced to 2G. Please note that the allotted amounts of data are more than enough for 99.9% of travelers.

While Orange boasts the best coverage in Israel, it is impossible for Cellular Abroad to guarantee data coverage in Israel. Just like in United States, there are always going to be dead zones. Even in cities like New York or San Francisco, while all carriers claim to have full coverage in the center of the city, there will always be dead zones. Having said that, typical coverage for 4G LTE is highly likely in the larger cities such as Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and others, in smaller towns, you may get 3G service - which is still fast.
