They now have their own device (it’s called the Teppy) however we haven’t tried it yet since the old device still works fine for us.

The Tep Wireless is also great if you’re bouncing between countries without having to grab a new SIM card in each country.

Lots of higher end hotels charge $8 or more a day for the use of their WiFi. Sometimes that’s per guest and doesn’t work outside your room, so $8.95 a day to rent one (the price has dropped) or $8 if you own the device to take it with you doesn’t sound too unrealistic.

Here in Canada, most companies charge $10 a day for out of country data and they have very low limits on the amount you can use and only certain providers they work with. Tep deals with multiple providers and I love how if you own the device, like we do, you can use it for 24 hours and then stop using it.

When we’re traveling, we often use it here and there as we need it rather than the entire duration to save on costs. That said, if we’re somewhere and need or want internet, we pull it out of our bag and voila, instant WiFi.

Is that US$? Maybe ok if have business and deductible but for the average traveler, it would be too much – $300/month.

Is the Tep wireless device just a brand labeled Skyroam?

TEP Wireless
keeps the network connection secure and stable with a good speed of 7,2mbps and it is featured in a global mobile guide Savvy.one

I could have done with one of these when cycling through Europe recently. I was really shocked with how bad WiFi access still is when staying in budget accommodation in Northern Europe, and it looks like this would have been perfect!
