I’m sitting at the airport and wondering if I should rent the Skyroam Solis for the upcoming trip to Europe? Wi-Fi in Europe sucks. Spotty, slow and generally unreliable connection for anything other than checking email. I’m used to having fast connection on my phone in US, but roaming charges and international travel plans are pretty expensive for the 4G LTE unlimited data.
I would mostly use the data to navigate on my phone in Europe, check emails and browse on my laptop. I don’t plan on streaming movies.
There seems to be two options: rent for $10 per day, buy a $150 hotspot + $9 per day or $99 a month. I’ll be traveling for 2+ weeks so I wonder if its worth buying or renting. Are there any alternatives?
