Uruguay Mobile Internet: Rental of portable Wifi

Portable wifi is a mobile modem that receives local 4G (or H+, 3G+, 3G+, 3G) and redistributes it in a wifi network within a radius of 15 meters. It allows access to a private, secure and unlimited internet connection. The download speed is 100 Mb per second in 4G LTE. It can be shared with 10 devices with a simultaneous wifi option. In addition, the mini router can be taken everywhere with you without being the least annoying because it is really small and lightweight. It can, for example, be slipped into a pocket of your pants.

In Uruguay, large cities such as Montevideo, Ciudad de la Costa, Salto, Paysandu, Las Piedras, Rivera and Maldonado have excellent 4G coverage. But if you need to stay in a smaller town or village, be aware that pocket wifi will adapt. It will connect through the various providers of the Uruguayan mobile network, in order to ensure optimal and total coverage throughout the country.

The wireless router for Uruguay from My Webspot is available from 6.40 Euros per day. It offers a private, secure and unlimited internet connection in 4G LTE. To book your rental or get more information, visit My Webspot.com

From there, you will be able to access the Internet, thanks to your prepaid SIM card. But if the cost of local calls is very advantageous, it is much less so for international calls. In addition, Internet access is still relatively very high. The proposed connection is at 3G speed, which is far behind the 4G of My Webspot's pocket wifi.
