Wiyo The Internet, Where You Want It

[09/03/14] 

For 21st century men used to instant gratification, there’s nothing more annoying than not having when-I-want-it-where-I-want-it access to the internet while travelling (unless you’re willing to pay exorbitant prices). Need to double-check that route you’re driving while on the road? Sorry, you can’t access Google Maps. Need to urgently respond to an email? The office will have to wait until you’re in Wi-Fi range. Worst of all, you can’t instantly Instagram your epic adventures - #nobraggingrights.

But now, thanks to Wiyo, you’ll be able to keep uploading those jealousy-inducing vacation photos from wherever you are. The Hong Kong-based company rents out pocket Wi-Fi that partner with local cellular carriers to give you internet access while travelling. It’s a simple process: you pay a HK$800 refundable deposit for the device, plus a daily rate – between HK$60 and HK$80, depending on your destination – that gives you 500MB of data per day. Currently, 11 destinations, including Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, the UK, and the US, are supported. For those of you going off the beaten path, Wiyo even offers satellite phone rentals, which are HK$180 a day, and require a HK$8,000 deposit. Once you’ve booked your rental, you can pick up the device from their Tsim Sha Tsui or Admiralty office, or for a small cost, have it couriered right to your door.

Time to master those filters and hashtags.
