Mobile hotspot data plan (mifi)

A SIM card must be placed in a mobile wifi router, just like in a smartphone. You cannot make calls with the mobile router, so you only need a data plan.

Are several people using the mifi router at the same time? Then you can benefit from the 5G speed. View 5G data plans.

If you already have an unlimited data plan, you can also use the SIM card in the mobile wifi router.

Unlimited data hotspot plan

There are often unlimited data plans for sale. Unfortunately, with many providers this is not really unlimited. This is because the mobile network carrier refers to a Fair Use Policy (FUP) (also known as Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)) in the general terms and conditions. It states that the carrier only accepts fair use.

This means that unlimited data plans also have a certain GB limit per day. If you exceed this limit, the carrier may charge extra costs per MB. This is not possible with prepaid (pay as you go) data plans. It is therefore always safer to use an prepaid unlimited data plan, so that you do not have unexpected costs afterwards.

Mobile network coverage

In rural areas, mobile internet coverage is often poor. But many (holiday) destinations are located in these more remote areas.

Therefore, always check the mobile network coverage at your destination in advance. The coverage often differs greatly between mobile carriers. This way you know in advance which carrier has the best coverage, and you do not incur unnecessary costs. View carrier coverage maps below:

It is also wise to have data plans card from 2 (or more) mobile network carriers. Vodafone and T-Mobile often have their own network and are mobile carriers in many countries. By having a data plan from both carriers, you have a better chance of having coverage. It also provides a backup option if you have exceeded the FUP.
