Depending on your existing phone/internet plan(s), you may be able to add on a portable Wi-Fi plan to work with your device. Major cell companies like Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile even sell their own portable hotspots (we included one of each below), and you don’t need to be an existing customer to use one. When traveling in different countries, you may find that SIM cards are cheaper than what you’d pay here, so a device that uses SIM cards may be worthwhile for you if you’re going to be overseas.

It’s worth mentioning that there is also something called a portable or travel router — basically, a tool that helps boost public Wi-Fi in places like cafes, airports, or hotels. However, in this story, we’re just looking at hotspots or machines that do not need already-existing Wi-Fi and active electricity to run, as travel routers often require a power cord and can demand pretty expensive data plans.

It’s also a great tool for keeping your GPS going when cell service is poor. While this tool can’t guarantee perfect internet everywhere under the sun, it can get you online in most of the US and many other countries.
