Traveling outside the U.S. can be expensive when it comes to roaming data plans. Each country has different requirements and different pricing, and roaming charges are often exorbitant. Xcom Global is now offering the daily rental of a Novatel MiFi 2372, which includes unlimited data in 21 countries. The daily rental is $17.95, and the unlimited data can be shared among five devices over the Wi-Fi connection to the MiFi.
XCom also offers a cheaper USB modem plan for $14.95, but that connectivity is limited to the one device with the modem. These plans are not inexpensive, but not bad for unlimited data and offer a good fit for the business traveler visiting several countries and in need of full data connectivity to get work done. It’s also a good way to keep in touch with those back home via Skype. Hopefully this MiFi 2372 isn’t one of those affected by the recalls.
