International MiFi Hotspot Rental - Unlimited
Watch an Overview
International Mobile 4G LTE WiFi Hotspot Rental
Our international mobile hotspot rental works in over 70 countries include all of Europe, Australia and New Zealand plus several destinations in Latin and Central America. The Wi Fi hotspot rental offers virtually unlimited 4G LTE data for travelers. You can use it in one destination or roam seamlessly from one country to another, which is particularly important in Europe as many travelers tend to visit multiple European cities during their trip. The mobile hotspot is a portable device about the size of a small cell phone that transmits your own secure Wi Fi hotspot with blazing fast LTE/4G connectivity (when available, otherwise, 3G). You can use a Wi Fi hotspot with any Wi Fi enabled device including cell phones (even those locked to a specific carrier), tablets, PCs and any other device with Wi Fi. Up to 10 devices can connect at the same time making this ideal for one person or even groups of people. The Mobile Hotspot Rental is very easy to use and eliminates the need to get roaming and data plans with your carrier which are often not available for many devices (like your iPad) and are expensive and offer very little data and/or offer slow data. The mobile hotspot uses Three, one of the fastest growing carriers in Europe. While coverage is never possible 100% of the time in all locations, Three's 4G and 3G coverage is extensive.
Please note that if your trip is more than 2 weeks or if you are a frequent international traveler, it is less expensive to Buy an International Mobile Hotspot.
Benefits of Renting a Mobile Hotspot
There are many benefits of renting a mobile hotspot. The main benefits are the convenience and the savings. Having your own mobile hotspot allows you to access the internet anywhere, any time with any device or even multiple devices simultaneously. You can use useful travel apps such as Google Maps, Trip Advisor, Skype, WhatsApp plus you can check your emails and browse the web whenever and wherever you want. In addition, unlike free Wi Fi, you will have a secure internet connection. The last thing you want to have happen to you is to have your credit card or bank accounts hacked while you are traveling. With a mobile hotspot, you do not have to figure out the roaming fees that your current carrier charges in Europe. Simply turn off data roaming on your device, switch on Wi Fi, enter the password on the back of the device and you are ready to go. You can even make phone calls if you use an app such as WhatsApp or Skype.
Please note that, although it is standard policy in the cellular business to advertise the term, "unlimited" and then in the terms and conditions clarify that there is a "Fair Usage Policy" that specifies caps, Cellular Abroad wants to make it clear that users have 12GB of high speed data per each 30 day period. If your trip is between 30-59 days, we will include a secondary data SIM card that offer an additional 12GB of data. This is a significant amount of data yet it is a cap. All the companies that Cellular Abroad is aware of, including those advertising unlimited data have significantly lower caps despite what they advertise. Cellular Abroad is in the business of providing quality cellular and data service with transparent pricing and therefore, it is important to underline that, while the service is virtually unlimited, there are limits although these limits will effect a very small percentage of users.
Just how much is 12GB of data? 12GB of data allows you to browse approximately 120,00 webpages, read 24,000 emails and download approximately 24 hours of good quality video.
*And other international destinations. Please check the Coverage tab for all countries covered.
|Rental Rates per day/week|

|*7 day minimum. You will receive 12GB of data per each 30 day period or portion thereof. For example, if your rental is for 32 days, you will receive 12GB of data for the first 30 days and an additional 12GB of data for the remaining 2 days.|

JSA_Ceduna from Iowa, USA
This worked much better than the sim card for the phone. I was able to access internet in each country Switzerland, Italy, France. I tried to only check email and view websites, but I ran out of data before the end of a two week trip. Some way to reload more data would be nice.

- Great Coverage
