Emerging MIFI or WIFI Hotspot options So, what is a MIFI? It is a small WiFi router that connects to a network (including 3G & 4G) and offers portable internet for up to 5 devices. Smart has lead the way in the Philippines with the intro of their MIFI. Globe has also started to offer their device too. These units are also referred to as “Huawei WIFI Router”. Typical specifications include: Wi-Fi 802.11b/g
HSUPA/HSDPA/UMTS 2100 MHz,
EDGE/GPRS/GSM 1900/1800/900/850 MHz,
microSD card slot, Battery Customers need to purchase carefully, at P495.00/month, this unit is locked by each carrier.
Good News!! There are unlocked versions out there and they work great but can run up to P7500, if you can find them. If the budget is not able to support a MIFI, also consider the Sierra Wireless products we offer (Compass 888 & Aircard 881 & 503).
