You may have noticed that lately I have been very active on Instagram, posting at least twice a day. In order to keep up my engagement rate high during my recent Eurotrip I was determined to keep it up so it was necessary for me to have access to Wi-Fi pretty much everywhere I went.
When traveling abroad, however, there is usually the question of how to do that without running into high roaming charges — or even whether your mobile phone will be able to connect to a network at all.
Not only did I need Wi-Fi for posting on Instagram, but for so many of my daily activities. Nowadays, staying connected wherever you go seems more like a necessity than a luxury.
At the beginning of my trip I was constantly scanning for free Wi-Fi hotspots, but the truth is, that they can be very unreliable, and sometimes extremely difficult to find. This predicament came to an end for me in Paris. Perhaps you noticed that during my stay in Paris I was posting more often on my social media platforms. The main reason was because while in Paris I had my own portable Wi-Fi hotspot device called MyWebSpot.
MyWebSpot rents a great little pocket unit that works virtually everywhere in Europe. The convenience, reliability, and freedom of being online anywhere and anytime in my travels makes it a great value for a traveler like me.
What was great about this is that I had it with me at all times and I was always able to connect with my loved ones or business associates back home. A further advantage: It allows you (and anyone with you) to connect up to ten devices at the same time at no extra cost.
All over Europe, it’s routine to see travelers hunting down free or cheap Internet service (most of which is very low quality) in hotel lobbies, sitting on the floor at airports outside the VIP lounge door, and wasting valuable trip time.
With the luxury of having my own private mobile hotspot, I was able to get online without fiddling with login credentials, petty payments here and there, and worrying about time limits. And, since a single hotspot allows access for up to ten devices, my wife and I had all our gear–smartphones, laptops, and tablets, online as we like and need. I was online — communicating, working, or being entertained — on taxis, buses, and trains. I’ve used it in airports and even in cafés overlooking some wonderful sights. I also appreciated the device even in hotels and AirBnB apartments where online access is free because my signal is often stronger and faster.
There are three different options to choose from.
- Rent a device for 5 € per day and get up to 500 MB per day in fair use with a maximum speed of 21 MB per second.
- Rent a device for 7.50 € per day and get up to 1 GB per day in fair use with a maximum speed of 150 MB / second
- Rent a device for 9 € per day and get unlimited data with a maximum speed of 150 / second (This was what I had and it’s totally worth it.
How does it work?
- Rent your mobile hotspot with a few clicks on-line before departure.
- The hotspot is delivered via standard mail (France) or courier services (inside Paris) to your French address (hotel, rental flat or house…).
- Once you have received your hotspot, the connection is absolutely fast and reliable.
- To connect to the internet simply turn on the mobile hotspot, wait a few seconds and connect to the Wi-Fi signal.
- The return is very easy. A prepaid envelope is provided. You just drop in any mailbox!
This device is easy to use and hold their charge a long time. You only need to sign in once because your computer will remember the device every time. Getting online is as simple as turning the power on. To learn more, visit MyWebSpot.
