Mobile Internet Egypt : Travel while remaining securely connected
If there are different solutions today to access mobile Internet Egypt. Their costs are still not adequate and the procedures to be carried out are often a little complicated. A simple, efficient and economical solution is offered by MY WEBSPOT and its Wifi hotspot.
Wifi hotspot can also be called under the following names: portable Wifi, pocket Wifi, mini router or wireless router. For the moment, the mini router is not yet very well known to the French. But it should become an indispensable object in the near future.
It is already available to other European travelers travelling around the world and provides good mobile internet access in Egypt.
Pocket Wi-Fi allows you to access an Internet connection from anywhere in Egypt, even from the most remote places such as a small village, the mountains or the sea.
Mobile Internet Egypt: Portable WiFi rental
The innovation proposed by My Webspot consists in providing you with a mobile Wifi modem. In which is already inserted a Sim card that gives access to a secure and unlimited private connection. The range of the device is a radius of 15 meters. The download speed is 100 Mb per second, in 4G LTE.
You can connect 10 devices (computers, tablets, smartphones or game consoles) simultaneously. The portable Wifi is also very easy to carry because it is small and light. It can be slipped into a pocket or handbag. It will not interfere with your travel or activities.
In Egypt, major cities such as Cairo, Alexandria, Giza, Shubra El-Kheima, Suez, Port Said, Luxor and Mansourah have optimal 4G coverage. But, it is interesting to note that the wireless router can offer you a connection in more remote or isolated areas of the country. It connects via the different providers of the local mobile network.
My Webspot's pocket Wifi is available from 6.40 euros per day, for 4G, private, secure and unlimited access. For any questions or additional information you can visit WiFi Africa.
Free Wifi in Egypt
For occasional use, the free hotspot solution is of course popular with the public. But abroad, as in Egypt, it is not always a simple and practical solution.
Free Wi-Fi in Egypt is generally only available in large cities (bars, cafes, restaurants or hotels). The disadvantage is the multitude of people connected simultaneously on the same bandwidth. As a result, the connection is very slow and cuts are frequent.
Concerning the city of Cairo, you can find the sites that offer free Wifi on this link: where to find free wifi in Cairo. Please note that you will have to pay a minimum purchase to be able to have the Wifi code in return.
Last but not least, there is the risk of free Wi-Fi in Egypt. Indeed, the proposed connection is not private and neither secure. A person with sufficient computer knowledge can enter your computer and recover all your data without great difficulty.
Prepaid SIM cards in Egypt
The possibility of purchasing a prepaid SIM card in Egypt is another solution for travellers. It has advantages but also many disadvantages. Some local providers such as MobiNil, Vodafone Egypt or Etisalat offer prepaid SIM cards with included internet subscription.
This is interesting for local calls, but very expensive for international calls. Be careful you will only have 3G, which we remind you is ten times slower than a 4G LTE connection.
In all cases, there is the constraint of the equipment. Your telephone device will need to be unlocked to recognize and access the frequency bands of the Egyptian mobile network. There are also dual SIM smartphones, but these are rare in France.
If Internet connectivity is essential. The solution consists in installing the local SIM card in your smartphone when you arrive at your destination and transferring your French SIM to an entry-level phone, to receive calls or even SMS messages from France.
However, it will be necessary to provide, at least the first time, a coupler and smart card adapter for SIM/Micro SIM and Nano SIM...
Mobile Internet Egypt: Data abroad
The solution of data abroad is strongly discouraged for French travellers who need Internet access during their stay in Egypt.
The tariffs offered by the operators of the French mobile network are absolutely indecent.
The trap can also come from the fact that you have consumed your Internet package. No alert message will alert you. At that time, you will switch to very high rates.
Between your Mo used to navigate and the automatic updates of your smartphone, the total amount of your invoice can reach records.
