We use the mobile networks of Vodafone and NOS. Their coverage in Portugal is 99% in 3G and 80% in 4G. 5G technology is still expanding in Portugal, starting to cover more and more parts of the country. There is 5G coverage already in most of the main cities and in much of the coastal area of Portugal. In places where there is no 5G nor 4G, you can always count on having 3G coverage.
The internet connection is available in all Portuguese territory, including the Madeira and Azores islands.
You will be able to use the service in several other European countries as well if you add that option to your order.
Our data SIM cards allow 5G connection. To have 5G, however, you need to have a 5G compatible device and be in an area with 5G coverage.
Besides Portugal, you can use our service in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom.
In Portugal, you will have unlimited traffic. There is not a limit on the GB you can consume. Within the rental period, there will not be extra costs for internet data traffic.
We offer unlimited internet, but we cannot guarantee speed. The speed depends on multiple factors, from network coverage, indoor placement, number of simultaneous users accessing the mobile network, among other variables.
If you are also going to use the service in other European countries, you will have a limit of 38GB per month when you are outside of Portugal.
You will have 38GB per month. As an example, you can consume 1,5GB in one day and 500MB in the next one. Nevertheless, the total consumption in one calendar month (1st to 30th/31st) cannot exceed 38GB.
You can check the data consumption, at any time, on your smartphone, if you are renting the SIM card; or directly on the display of the portable WiFi, if you are renting the WiFi hotspot.
It is not possible to top up extra GB. After you have consumed the 38GB in one month calendar, the service will stop working.
Yes, you can. It works in the Wifi rent or SIM card rent.
It is not guaranteed that you will be able to stream TV.
Under good coverage our customers normally are able to watch TV.
However, there are many factors that affect the quality of the internet connection on a mobile network. 4G doesn’t yet cover all the territory and in areas with only regular 4G coverage, the signal may not be enough to provide the speeds needed to stream TV.
Additionally, places with good 4G coverage, can get crowded during the certain periods, which will force the bandwidth to be shared with different customers, causing a drop in the connection speed.
Up to 10 devices can connect simultaneously. But please note that the network speed will be shared with the connected devices.
Not at all. You do not need to do any set-up nor configuration. You just need to turn on the device and use the password we provide to connect.
Battery usually lasts for a whole day for the most of the users. It can last up to 120 hours at standby state and at least 6 to 8 hours for nonstop use.
You will not need to change the battery of the portable WiFi unless you add an additional battery to your order. You can see how to change the battery in the video.
Yes, and portable Wifi hotspot comes with a USB cable and power plugs for Portugal.
It comes with SIM card. You do not have to buy SIM card if you are renting WiFi.
An unlocked phone accepts SIM cards from other networks. To test if your phone is unlocked, insert in your phone a SIM card of a friend who is from another network and see if it works normally.
If you are not sure if the phone is unlocked, rent instead our portable WiFi hotspot.
