Individual WI-FI Country Rentals
Single Country MiFi Hotspot Rentals
Internet access when traveling internationally is often expensive, inconvenient and never secure. With a Mi Fi hotspot rental, you can instantly access the internet on your smartphone, tablet, PC or any other Wi Fi enabled device. In addition, you are free to roam without the constraints of a hotel lobby or café.
For travelers needing 24/7 access to data, Cellular Abroad offers Mi Fi Hotspot Rentals for various destinations including Europe, South America, China and Japan. A MiFi Rental allows you to securely connect to the internet 24/7 - even while sitting down at a café or while in a train or a car. This portable device allows you to browse the internet, make calls with Skype, check emails, use Google Maps, watch videos and anything else you typically do online.
For travelers who are only visiting one country, Cellular Abroad recommends renting an Individual Country MiFi hotspot. The main advantage over the Multi-Country service is that you can get a better rate for your data usage and, since you are not roaming, faster connections. As an example, if you're just traveling just to Italy, our Italy MiFi Rental offers 10GB of data usage at LTE speeds which is more than enough for 99% of travelers. Please click on the country to where you will be traveling for more information and rates.
International Data Hotspot Rentals
Cellular Abroad now offers a prepaid data solution that's perfect for travelers who want to stay connected to the internet 24/7 - even outdoors! This unique device - the aptly named "MiFi" hotspot - allows anyone with their own portable WiFi enabled device (e.g. an iPad, iPhone, Blackberry, laptop or smartphone) to take advantage of mobile data services and 3G data speeds - at a fraction of the cost of traditional mobile data!

PLEASE NOTE: We do not ship mobile hotspot rentals outside of the US/Canada.
A Mi Fi Hotspot is a small, portable device that is small enough to fit in your pocket yet powerful enough to emit a wi fi signal that you can access with any wi fi enabled device such as an iPad, and iPhone or even a laptop. The service is available for rent for travelers traveling to international destinations.
We offer different data amounts for different destinations - any where from 1GB to unlimited data. Please click on the country or destination for where you plan to be traveling.
That is a difficult question to answer but, what you can do is to check with your current service provider and see how much data you typically use. This will give you a ball park figure.
Not only can you use your mobile hotspot with multiple devices but you can have multiple users connect simultaneously. As long as they have your password, up to 5 devices or people can connect to the internet at the same time.
Having others connect on the same device at the same time you are logged on does slow the service down a bit but most users do not notice a difference.
That depends on the country as well as where you happen to be. For example, the Italy Mi Fi Rental will give you speeds up to 4G but that is if you are in a city. In the suburbs, 3G is prevalent and very remote areas will usually not only give you that.
While data coverage in Europe, Latin America, China and other international destinations is usually very good, it depends on where you are. If you have rented a villa in a remote area of the country then you may get no connectivity at all. Having said that, as a rule of thumb, wherever there is people, there you will find coverage.
On standby you will typically get a couple of days but if you are browsing the web, you will get a few hours. The more people using the device simultaneously, the quicker the battery drains.
Yes, that is not a problem.
Rental fees vary from country to country so please visit the destination page where you will be traveling.
You sometimes can just get away with free Wi Fi. Here are a few considerations. Do you need access anywhere, any time or do you just need to check the occasional email? If you only need to check sporadically and you know for sure that your hotel has free Wi Fi and the connection is fast and reliable, and you don't mind using it in a specific area of the hotel, and last, but not least, you do not intend to do any password sensitive activities such as banking, then you can get away with free Wi Fi. However, if you need a secure connection, anytime anywhere or you just don't want to risk relying on free Wi Fi, then consider renting.
One of the advantages with our service is that it is prepaid. This way, you will never get an unexpected bill.
Yes, the data service is secure. This is very important for many travelers, specifically business travelers and specifically in a few countries that have no problem "borrowing" intellectual property. While this can happen in many countries, we have a high volume of travelers to China who require a hotspot rental specifically for that purpose.
