The Internet allows  exchange of files with various content.  There are websites, which allow you to watch movies, read books and   download applications to suite your lifestyle.  It allows aapplication downloads like   navigation apps, Google Maps, and a lot of important apps and  information  from every corner of the world in just a few clicks or minutes depending on your connection. With the internet, entertainment and information source on our laptops, smartphones and gadgets is now at our fingertips and on demand.

While some hotels,  coffee shops, airports and other establishments have free Wifi available, I sometimes find myself  in an area that doesn’t have Wifi accessibility.  This is where pocket WiFis come in handy.

iVideo Pocket WiFi rental

Weeks ago, I got to try out the iVideo Pocket WiFi in exchange for a review.

They sent in a Huawei E5573 Pocket WiFi unit coupled with Smart Communications sim as my pocket wifi rental provider.

Things To Love

The iVideo Pocket WiFi unit displays a battery (right side) and signal strength (left side) indicator of the device. It is separated by the power button in the center. A green color signifies a good signal strength and battery life.

Things To Consider When Renting a Pocket Wifi

Here  are some factors to consider when opting for a Pocket Wifi rental for your trip out of the country.

Determine how long are you staying in abroad. This is  important  because rental is based on a per day basis. Are you a heavy smartphone user? How much budget are you looking into? Your smartphone habits will eventually  add up to the cost.

Check  your provider for the maximum number of devices it can give access to simultaneously.

Check for the data cap. Mobile providers put a limit on how much data you can use in a month. The variety of data caps or bandwidth limit usually range from 10 MB up to over 10 GB.  Knowing this data that will be shared by your laptop, mobiles phones, and tablet will help you plan ahead.

Sometimes internet connection  slows down, or becomes throttled once the amount of data has been used up. In some cases, you  lose Internet access altogether. The provider may charge you  for exceeding their monthly limit of data.
