Mobile Internet in Hungary: solutions for connected holidays

The rental of portable Wi-Fi from My Webspot is the ideal solution to stay connected to the Internet when travelling on Hungarian territory, and to have mobile Internet in Hungary.

Portable Wi-Fi can also be called by many other names such as pocket Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi hotspot, mini router or wireless router. In the previous year, it was ranked by the French as the number 1 solution used to surf the Internet abroad. With this device you can find the Internet, in complete freedom, with an unlimited connection and an optimal speed in all regions of the country, even the most isolated.

Mobile Internet in Hungary: Rental of portable Wi-Fi

During your trip to Hungary, the rental of the mini router ensures you an optimal and unlimited connection during all your holidays. In addition, its connection is private and secure, which allows maximum protection of your personal data. Up to 10 devices can connect via Wi-Fi (laptops, smartphones, tablets...) with complete peace of mind to access and share music, videos, emails, online games and even high definition videos simultaneously.

In Hungary, in the largest cities such as Budapest, Debrecen, Miskolc, Nyiregyhaza, Szeged, Gyor, Pecs or Kecskemét, you can surf thanks to perfect 4G coverage. But, if during your stay, you will have to travel to smaller towns or even villages, the Wi-Fi hotspot will connect via the various mobile network providers, in order to guarantee you full coverage throughout Hungary. The wireless router rental for Hungary from My Webspot is available from 6.40 euros per day, for a secure and unlimited connection, with a maximum speed throughout the country.

Free Wi-Fi in Hungary

Free Wi-Fi is a solution often adopted by French travelers to Hungary. But disappointment is often present because the connection is unstable and of poor quality. Another concern is to be able to locate them because most often the terminals are only installed in bars, cafés, restaurants or hotels in large cities.

In Budapest, you will find many sites offering free Wi-Fi. However, most of them being private places, the Wi-Fi code will be given to you subject to consumption. Check this link to find out where they are located.

Be aware that it will be difficult for you to isolate yourself in these often noisy places. And don't forget to be very careful during your connections because in Hungary, hackers are more and more numerous. Many travellers have already had their computer data hacked. Avoid any online payment or banking on public wifi.

Public Wifi be wary of the risks of hacking

Prepaid SIM cards in Hungary

The prepaid SIM card in Hungary is not a solution often adopted by French tourists because it is not always simple and practical to implement.

Indeed, some providers require a bank account and a local address to grant a package with an Internet subscription included. Local mobile network operators such as T-Mobile, Pannon GSM or Vodafone offer "special travel" packages; but these Internet packages can be limited in terms of data volume and the cost is quite high. They are essentially in 3G which is ten times slower than the 4G offered by My Webspot and its portable Wi-Fi. The only real advantage is local calls with attractive rates.

Other problems identified by travelers include the inaccessibility of their telephone number during the use of the prepaid SIM card or the incompatibility of the telephone with Hungarian frequency bands.

Mobile Internet in Hungary: Data abroad in Hungary


Data abroad", also known as Data Roaming, is a solution to avoid when accessing the Internet during your stay in Hungary (as in any other country in the world). More and more operators are offering this service. It is therefore important to know your needs and compare the different offers because prices are rising very quickly for this type of package. Once out of the package (which happens frequently) prices skyrocket, resulting in exorbitant invoices.

Don't be the next customer to be fooled by their operator and choose a much less dangerous process that won't spoil your vacation. And we hope you know more about mobile internet in Hungary.
