The device is ready when you are. Just leave it on standby or turn it on when you are ready to log on to the internet. In addition, up to 5 users can simultaneously log on to the MiFi.


The portable MiFi is small enough to fit in your pocket yet powerful enough to access the internet for several hours on a single charge.


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.
