Pocket WIFI – Wiyo

Before my trip to Japan, i am frustrated about either renting a pocket wifi or just use my Digi roaming. After few comparisons, and finally i have decided to have pocket wifi, simply because it’s much much much cheaper compared to Digi roaming and can use up to 10 devices at the same time!

I googled and found out that there are a few pocket wifi companies available in Malaysia. So i did a survey and compared the prices and of course the reviews from their customers.

So far, I am very satisfied with Wiyo Pocket Wifi. Connection was very good (except underground or inside certain buildings). Battery life was surprisingly long! Fully charged in the morning before i was going out and still have 1-2 bars when i went back to the hotel at night. I strongly recommend Wiyo if you are traveling in a group of friend or family, or you are using few devices at the same time like me.
