Mobile hotspot designed for international travel: Globalgig

Boot Camp feature for Monday, March 25, 2013

A mobile hotspot designed for international travel.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Staying connected while you’re outside of the U.S. can sometimes be an expensive proposition, but it doesn’t have to be.   A company called Globalgig has a little rechargeable hotspot you can carry along that,  in certain destinations,  makes  those connections more affordable.   A flat rate of 25 dollars a month for 2 gigabytes, for instance.  Where does it work?  General Manager Henrik Lehmann Weng…

“The first countries that we launched in were the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia.   And today we have added Hong Kong to the countries we cover, Denmark, Sweden and Ireland.”

And there are more to come.   Up to five devices ....tablets, smartphones or computers,  can be connected at the same time.   The Globalgig device sells for 119 dollars without a contract and is free with an 18 month service contract.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
