Phone locked? Buy an unlocked mifi device
If your phone is locked to a network, I suggest buying an unlocked mifi device. I have a Huawei mifi device that has been great for me, compatible with 4G simcards and currently costs £79.99 at the Amazon store. It lasts upto 6 hours on full charge and you can connect 3 devices to the device.
Travel frequently and need data? Get the Skyroam Solis
If you are a frequent traveller and need data whenever you travel, I strongly recommend purchasing the Skyroam Solis– think of it as a mobile wifi device ( which you can share with upto 5 other people travelling with you ) + it also doubles up as a charger thanks to its 6000 MAh battery.
A really cool travel gadget to have and it works in over 100 countries across the world including Germany so it is a pretty neat gadget to have for any global traveller.
You can buy 1 GB of data ( unlimited, 4G speeds) for $9 a month and for extra GB of data, it costs $9.
The device itself costs $149.99 which is major upfront investment and on top of that you just pay for the data you use.
Currently Skyroam are offering the device and one year subscription for $199.
