Our regular readers know that we like to tell you about details that can make your travels better, and one of the things we came across that was really convenient during out trip to Korea was our own portable source of internet!
I had come across a company that rents these little devices to visitors...
It's not much bigger than a business card!
Now, Korea is one of the most connected countries in the world. But it's very difficult to find your own secure connection to use with your smartphone, laptop, or tablet.
This little device takes a cellular signal, connects to the internet and then distributes a WiFi signal that up to five devices can simultaneously connect to. It's a fast connection and we never had a problem uploading pictures to facebook or this blog.
You can stay connected anywhere in Korea for $3.99 per day. Or you can get a one month contract with 6 GB of available data usage for $80. We thought it was a pretty good deal, and let me tell you when they say it works anywhere, they mean it! We tested it!
Plus, the battery is great and we found that it would easily go 10 hours between charges, and that's if you left it on. I think we only had to recharge it three or four times during the whole month we had it.
You can pre-order your device and they'll have it waiting at your hotel. Or, you can pick it up and drop it off right at the airport when you arrive and depart Korea.
