The Internet is what makes it possible to live the Dot Com Lifestyle. Thanks to its power, I’m able to live and work from anywhere in the world. However, in order to take advantage of it, you must be connected.
There are many options to stay connected when you’re away from the home. Nearly all hotels have in-room wireless Internet connections, and there’s normally always a nearby Starbucks. However, I like to be alway connected when I’m traveling.
In the past, I would get a local SIM card for my unlocked smartphone. Not only does this give me an always on connection, I get a local cellphone number as well (not that anyone would ever call it). However, a better solution is available in the form of the Wi-Ho!
The Wi-Ho! is a portable 4G LTE wireless router. It offers a blazing fast 75mbps download and 25mbps upload speed. And it fits in your pockets. I can connect up to ten devices onto it. The Wi-Ho! is what I’ve been using to post updates to my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram while I’m walking around Tokyo.
The Wi-Ho! cost 1,296 yen per day (about $11USD) to rent, which is extremely reasonable. Many hotels charge more for their slower in-room WiFi. With the Wi-Ho! hotspot, I can say goodbye to foreign sim cards, unsecured public WiFi, and expensive roaming charges. Don’t leave home without it!
