How much data do you need?
We often see people looking for an unlimited data plan but as we explained in our blog post, Pocket WiFi with true unlimited data does not exist. It always comes with Fair Usage Policy that will slow your internet after you pass a certain limit. Why? Because it uses mobile network (being mobile and all) that has millions of users who can't all have access to unlimited internet. We guarantee a certain data amount for high speed internet. Each plan has a different set of default data allotment but they all should be more than enough for normal travel purposes. Find out more about what 1GB of data gets you.
What speed can you expect?
The download / upload speeds listed on the device specs are best values, meaning those values aren't guaranteed. Actual speeds will be slower than that. This is including but not limited to our Pocket WiFi. However, with that said, you ca be assured that the 4G/LTE speed our devices provide is, in most cases, much faster than public free WiFi or hotel WiFi networks. You can enjoy web browsing, Google Maps, social media apps without any stress from slow loading. Read our customer reviews and find out what they are saying.
