What is a pocket wifi?
It’s a wireless modem that connects any Wi-Fi enabled device – smartphones, laptops and tablets – to 3G internet. It requires no installation, cables or software. It works like a Wi-Fi hotspot, but it’s personal and fits in your pocket. It gives you a secure, consistent and fast internet connection wherever you are, while saving a fortune on data roaming fees.
What does it work with?
Our pocket wifi works with any Wi-Fi enabled device, such as laptops (eg. Windows and Mac), smartphones (eg. iPhone, Android, Blackberry) or tablets (eg. iPad, Samsung Galaxy, Kindle). You can connect up to 10 devices at once to a pocket wifi. It will also work with any carrier-locked devices.
How many devices can I connect?
You can connect up to 10 devices to 1 pocket wifi. Please note that the connection speed will be shared among each device connected, so having 10 devices connected at the same time could result in noticeable speed slowdown.
How long does the battery last?
A fully charged battery lasts around 6 to 8 hours. The device can be charged via the USB outlet or a wall outlet (both cables included).
How fast is the connection?
The connection is ultra-fast if you are covered with 4G. If 4G is not available in your area, then you will be connected to the 3G+ or 3G network.

How much data will I have?
As we don’t like limits, you are unlimited. Absolutely unlimited data!
Do you have long term rental special prices?
If you are going to need a mobile hotspot for long periods of time, please write us at email@example.com and we will discuss all your options.
Can I remove the sim-card from the device?
No, the SIM card has to remain in its hotspot!
Which Service provider does DaDos use?
The Service provider that we use is DTAC. DTAC is one of the local carriers with best speed and coverage in Thailand.
How does coverage affect data speed?
In general, the better the signal in your area (indicated by more reception bars), the faster the connection speed should be.
If my cell phone can receive a signal, will the pocket wifi as well?
Not necessarily – cell phones work off of a different network than the pocket wifi, so the two are not connecting to the same signal. This is because the pocket wifi connects to data networks; 4G or lower. On the other hand, cell phones connect to mobile phone cellular networks. Since mobile phone cellular networks have been around for a lot longer than data networks, coverage is a lot better, especially in rural areas. For this reason, you might be able to make calls in a rural area but cannot connect to the internet.
Is there a signal out at sea?
If you are in a boat near the coast the unit will work but if you go out further to high sea then the unit will not receive the signal as it depends on 4G Antennas to be able to work.
