Pocket Wifi

I'm going to germany for three days end of October, currently have a salt subscription which includes 200MB data in europe.

They have surf options which cost 19.95 for just 1GB or 69.95 for 5GB.

However I think I might be using way lot more so I'm considering to get a pocket wifi, with daily unlimited data, something like this:

I wonder if anyone has experience or recommendations which pocket wifi I should get?

Thank you in advance.

yes sure but I do need access to internet "unterwegs", work reasons... for example the few hours drive there (I'm da passenger) I might need to join a zoom meeting.

Re: Pocket Wifi

Zoom meetings have been using up about 1GB per hour per person here.


Also be sure to check the small print, "unlimited data" does not mean "unlimited data at 4G speed" -- you might get a certain amount of "high-speed" data after which they cap you to much slower speeds.

I would suggest travelerswifi. In my experience, this is the best option.
