Internet service by the day for mobile warriors

Work & Lifestyle

Both mobile warriors and casual travellers are all too familiar with the difficulty and expense that can be associated with getting an internet connection while travelling. A couple of years ago we covered RovAir’s day-pass wireless mobile broadband service, and last month Finnish Zonga launched a like-minded alternative. Zonga’s mobile wifi rental service uses a 3G wifi modem that’s compatible with any wifi-enabled device. There’s no need to install anything, and the battery-powered device allows up to 5 simultaneous connections to the mobile broadband data network. Pricing is EUR 9 per day including unlimited data and all costs. Zonga’s “All You Can Internet” service is currently available only in Helsinki, with pick-up and drop-off locations at the airport and downtown hotels. Zonga aims to expand to other international airports over the course of next year, according to a report in Arctic Startup; one to partner with toward that end? Spotted by: John Greene
