Best WiFi on the Go



In our generation, everyone wants to stay connected. It’s so annoying traveling to a new place and realizing your phone barely works on the free public WiFi, all while watching other tourists somehow seamlessly connect to the internet. “How on earth are they on IG everyday with no problem, I can barely check my email”. This was me in Panama. I could only connect at public places with WiFi open to the sun. Otherwise, no chance. Doesn’t help that my phone was trash as well. Anyways, no more worries, your girl has learned her lesson and I got you!!! Several providers have created ways to give you the tech advantage and here I am to tell you a little more about the Top 2.

EXTRAS: They offer a service called Kitestring. This services sends you random safety text messages to check up on you when you go out. When you sign up, you create a personalized message and choose your emergency contacts. If you don’t respond when Kitestring reaches out, they will send your personalized alert to your emergency contacts. Unlike many safety apps and services, Kitestring is triggered by inactivity, rather than making you do something weird with your phone to send an emergency signal. Let’s face it, if something bad happens, who has time to shake their phone or hit some random emergency button to call for help.


BUY: You buy the device for $129 and you pay $7.95 per day only when you connect or $99 per month for Unlimited Global WiFi. If you sign up for the $99/month subscription plan, the device is free.


RENT: $8.95 per day for 1GB/day at 3G speed. $10.95 per day for 1GB/day at 4G speed. After you have used the 1GB, the connection speed slows down to 256kbps. You pre-pay shipping both ways and must return from whatever country you wish to discontinue service from.

If you travel often, buying one of these devices may be your best bet. You save money, pay only when you connect and you have your own personal WiFi at your fingertips. Let’s face it, you don’t have time for shipping and handling when you plan that spontaneous trip to leave tomorrow. LOL. Both of these devices are pocket sized and will give you the tech advantage you need to utilize social media, check emails, shop online and plan for your next vaca, all from the comforts of your hotel or Airbnb in nomansland. It doesn’t get any better than that!
