You will be no stranger these days to car salesmen having a new selling point of connected car being fitted with Wi-Fi which would be simply a wired dongle or similar to keep you connected on your travels but this limits you to just your vehicle and again you can’t remove it and keep it with you on your travels outside your region but it is a topic nonetheless that’s a moot point in my book when there is options elsewhere and one such option is Skyroam.. Yes we do have mobile dongles we can carry from our providers too but again limited options and high rates to use abroad and if you go over your limit you get fleeced blind which again says something regarding the roam like home bravado we seen which in reality is bullshit as you get a percentage of your overall allowance..

Skyroam changes this as it can be used in over 100 countries,you can take it anywhere and it also doubles as a powerbank and to top it off the battery life is excellent and from testing hard with two devices latched on all day using maps,social email and browsing I seen only a 30% reduction in charge each day which is quite remarkable considering how hard I punished this unit.



Keep in mind test above is to see how effective in other areas away from source but you can carry this in your pocket.

Set up is simple but can be problematic for some this could depend on your area or surroundings and even at home where I have a new build materials are also now an issue and proved same in tests here for getting a clean strong signal in the house, On the road this is great however and I suffered no latency or loss of signal at all and performed really well pushing it with just two devices connected. It really impressed me and the portability factor is also a benefit if you are staying at hotels for example where they tend to want to know everything about you before you can access it.

Skyroam also offer multiple package deals too so there is something to suit each pocket and needs and its flexible from day passes to more which is also good unlike other offers out there where you can only pick from a select few plans which none may suit.

Overall this is a handy item to have at your exposure and if like me you travel quite often its a must have the app is simple to use which will be shown in the video below and its a simple enough set up process and they have a help team at hand too should you run into difficulty and keep in mind it does take a few minutes to set up and get local tower signals and after that you are good to go and get connected anywhere. Finally it’s a great back up device to have should your network goes down which happened to me during testing..
