The hardest part of traveling for me is finding reliable Wi-Fi. I need it for my job, so not having reliable internet access is not an option for me. So, it was a big relief to find out about Tep Wireless.
What Is Tep Wireless Pocket Wifi?
This wireless pocket Wi-Fi device called Teppy, gives you wireless internet access anywhere you go without roaming fees. There are no data limits or caps, as you are charged by the day. It also gives you a private Wi-Fi connection that you can access with up to five of your devices.
You can order one in as little as three days before your trip, and your hotspot will be overnighted to you. If you’re in a rush, you can even have it sent to the airport.
You return the device at the end of your trip at the post office, so it’s a convenient way to rent this device.
Tep works in the United States and several countries across Asia, Mexico and Europe.
What I was really impressed with was the fact that the charger has a built in travel adapter that allows you to get power in over 150 countries. I never seem to have enough travel adapters when I travel, so I really loved this feature. It also came with a USB cable for charging which is very convenient.
How Did It Work?
It gave me a 3G signal in Mexico, where I used it. The speed wasn’t as fast as my regular Wi-Fi connection, but it was much faster than the Wi-Fi I’ve had to use in other countries. So I will be glad to have this device when I travel.
The internet can go down for an entire day in Mexico, too, so I will definitely use this device when there is no Wi-Fi or when the power goes out. I definitely wish I had known about this device when I traveled to Guatemala, where the Wi-Fi was usually nonexistent at the Airbnb place I stayed.
I highly recommend Tep for your Wi-Fi hotspot rental. It’s especially invaluable if you’re traveling for business and is a great convenience even if you’re just traveling for pleasure.
