TEP Wireless is a pioneer in the worldwide Internet industry: their pocket WiFi “Teppy” device lasts up to 6 hours on a charge and can connect up to 5 devices at once (doesn’t have power bank functionality).
Teppy can be rented for $8.95/day which includes the device and unlimited Internet access. Shipping to you is free, and you pay to ship the device back to either Durham NC, USA, or Enfield, United Kingdom.
Or can be bought for $99 + $9.95 shipping and pay $8/day for Internet services, which you can start and stop anytime for 24-hour coverage windows. Purchasing the device comes with 3 Free Day Passes.
They also offer a 4G Upgrade for $1.95/day which adds 500mbs to the amount of daily allotted 4G data.
Coverage: 100+ countries.
Warning: Speed Throttles: If you have the 4G upgrade (+$1.95/day), you get 1GB of high-speed data per day. After you’ve used 1GB, your connection speed gets slowed to 256kbs until the end of the day. If you do not have the 4G upgrade, you get 500MB of high-speed data per day and then it slows to 256kbs.
TEP Wireless offers a few extras such as:
1) A feature called Kitestring, which is an SMS-based emergency service that checks in on you while you travel via scheduled text messages that you send the frequency. If you don’t reply to the text, Kitestring sends your emergency contacts an alert message.
2) A free Concierge service that privately connects you with locals via their TEP+ App where you can ask for recommendations on things to do, places to eat/drink, and where to stay from 9 am to 8 pm every day.
3) Built-in VOIP phone and SMS services via their app with international calling prices that cost about $0.01/minute.
