<< (Page 2 of 4: WiFiRents Mobile Broadband Rental Review) >>

Like most mobile broadband rental companies, there are 4 steps:

  1. Order Your Broadband Card (of Device)
  2. Receive in your mail via courier
  3. Install software, plug in your broadband card, use it
  4. Return it via a prepaid mailing envelope.

How WiFiRents Works in 4 Steps

The process doesn’t change much from provider to provider.

Instead, the major differences come down to the company, how much it costs, the underlying network provider (speed & coverage) and what devices you can get.


Speed & Coverage

WiFiRents relies on AT&T & Verizon’s mobile broadband networks (you’ll be able to tell which network you’re on based on your broadband card). As such, they inherit their 3G speed & coverage:
