What is a Pocket WiFi?

It’s a compact modem and router in one, small enough to take with you so you can stay connected on up to 5 compatible devices during your stay in Korea. It gives you a secure, consistent and fast internet connection, while saving a fortune on data roaming fees.

How many devices can I connect?

You can connect up to 5 devices to 1 Pocket WiFi. Please note that the connection speed will be shared among each device connected, so having 5 devices connected at the same time could result in noticeable speed slowdown.

How long does the battery last?

A fully charged battery lasts around 5 to 7 hours. The device can be charged via the USB outlet or a wall outlet (both cables included).

What is the download / upload speed of a Pocket WiFi?

The official speed is around 10 Mbps for Pocket WiFi Seoul and 100 Mbps for Pocket WiFi Korea.
