If you have decided to take a good vacation or just travel for a while, you will be thinking about how to adapt your life for this trip. There is an element that we always need or that, for many, is essential in their lives, the internet. For those who work online, they need a solution to access the Internet from wherever they are at that moment. But if this is not your case, you may be interested in communicating with others, watching movies at night, etc.
What is a portable wifi hotspot for?
Portable WiFi is a way to connect to the Internet through a 4G or 5G router. This type of device has been with us for years and allows us to connect to WiFi through a data rate. That is, we insert a SIM card inside the 4G or 5G router and it creates a wireless network from which we can connect different devices without relying on fiber optics or ADSL.
However, we must bear in mind that, if we are going to use it while traveling outside our country of origin, we must review the roaming conditions. In this case, if it is through the European Union, we can offer you a roaming solution without any extra cost. The use of portable WiFi has many benefits as we will see later.
And, if you are wondering what advantage it has, the truth is that we can use them anywhere without the need for a fixed installation. On a trip, in a flat where you only stay for a month and you don’t want to install fiber, in a vacation apartment, in hotels…
There are many types of 4G or 5G routers, but they all work the same: we insert the previously contracted card with the rate we want. Once it is inside, a wireless network is simply created to which we can connect from the mobile phone, from the Smart TV, from the tablet or from the computer. They allow several devices connected simultaneously and the speed and amount of data will depend on the rate you have contracted in your specific case.
In addition, there are different models of routers… There are them with dongle or USB stick format that we have been using for decades and that do not need to be connected to the current, but simply connect it to the USB port of your computer to create WiFi. On the other hand, there are plug-in routers that work like the usual ones, but without any type of network cable or any connection beyond being connected to the current. Inside, the SIM card that allows us to connect to the wireless network. We can transport these to vacation homes, hotels or even to connect from a train that has a plug. Just plug in and go.
Finally, another common model for portable WiFi is wireless routers. A small 5G modem that we take anywhere and that allows us to connect to the Internet wirelessly on a trip, for example. They have a battery that allows them to be used without connecting to the current or to any USB.

Mobile wifi hotspot?
Use a mobile as a router. In the event that you have an old mobile phone at home, we can always choose to use it as a portable router instead of having to buy one, as we have just mentioned. The best thing about this alternative is that, whether it’s an iPhone or an Android, we can use it to share mobile data, that is, give Internet to other devices, whether it’s a tablet, computer or television.
It will be a good idea to buy a SIM card with a large number of GB and roaming to insert it and from which we can share the Internet with other devices. To do this, we must follow a series of steps:
• On Android: Settings> Networks and Internet/Connections> WiFi Zone> press again on WiFi Zone> Activate switch.
