Mastering the art of hunting Wi-Fi just got easier.

Hunting Wi-Fi: now a mastered art.

 

By MAMAMIA TEAM

Here at Mamamia, we have an almost scholarly understanding of Facebook FOMO (the Fear of Missing Out what’s getting shared on Facebook ) and Nomophobia (the fear of not being able to get network coverage on your mobile).

We’ve mastered the art of stealthily finding the best wi-fi spots in airports, even if that means balancing on one leg atop a suitcase in a corner, while contorting our bodies to get the highest number of possible bars. Or spending the half the day trekking around a new city, trying to find a café with wi-fi, which doesn’t expect you to consume three breakfasts to justify your position in the comfy chair for three hours.

But despite the fact that we have perfected these skills, there’s no denying that searching for public wi-fi (or having to pay to use expensive hotel wi-fi) is a huge hassle. Wi-fi hunting becomes even more difficult when travelling with the family and kids, and getting everyone connected when you’re out and about can require planning and synchronisation of Mission Impossible standards.

Just as an FYI, you should know that this post is sponsored by Telstra. But all opinions expressed by the author are 100% authentic and written in their own words.

If you’re holidaying with friends and family this summer, the Telstra Pre-Paid 4G wi-fi device might help you out. It connects up to 5 wi-fi compatible devices to the Telstra Mobile Network at the same time, including laptops and tablets (just in case you want to double-device it with a laptop and an iPad at the same time).

You can connect your devices the same way you would connect to your home wi-fi , but you can pick it up and take it with you. Genius, we say.

The Telstra Pre-Paid 4G wi-fi is a small and lightweight broadband device, that lets you set up a portable wi-fi hotspot anywhere there is Telstra coverage – and that’s a lot of places especially as they have 4x the 4G coverage area of any other networks across Australia. You can easily set up a wi-fi connection to laptops and tablets (no more trying to upload photos using the itty bitty screen on the Facebook mobile app), and don’t have to worry about draining your mobile battery by tethering your phone (as mobile battery is another thing that concerns us here at Mamamia greatly, we’re pleased to hear this).

The best thing about this portable wi-fi hotspot is that it allows multiple devices – up to five compatible devices like laptops, tablets, and more – to be connected at once, which means that parents can check their emails, while allowing teenagers to get in contact with their friends, and kids can keep themselves entertained with some funny YouTube clips.

No more do you have to worry about missing an important work email from your boss sent during the office break (as bosses have a tendency to do), or not being able to check hotel reservation details while on the go, or forgetting what time your plane is, or not being able to send a Christmas email to your friends, or sharing that hilarious New Year’s Eve cat meme on social media.

You can connect yourself – and your family – on the go. You holiday hero, you.
