Your easy and instant WiFi hotspot

It may sound like voodoo, but it’s really quite straightforward how your Wireless Mobile WiFi device works. It’s actually a tiny portable wireless internet hub that uses a mobile phone signal to connect to the internet. And because it’s wireless, you can connect up to 10 devices at the same time, such as your laptop, tablet, desktop computer or mobile.
