Pocket WiFi

Telecom

A pocket WiFi is a device which connects to the Internet via a wireless local area network (WLAN). A pocket WiFi acts as a hotspot through which smartphones, tablets, laptops and other devices can connect to the Internet.

Various Swiss mobile service providers offer data-only plans designed for use with Pocket WiFi hotspots. These data plans are included in the moneyland.ch mobile plan comparison.

Pocket WiFi devices are also useful for travelers. By simply purchasing a local SIM card in your destination country and inserting this into your pocket WiFi, you can connect to the Internet at local rates while at the same time keeping your primary phone number activated in order to receive calls.
