What is MiFi?

MiFi is a type of wireless router that allows you to connect multiple devices to the internet using a cellular network. It can be known by other names, such as pocket WiFi or mobile hotspot, and since MiFi devices are small and portable, it makes them ideal for travel, remote work, and events. If you have a team that needs to travel across the country, or the world, on a regular basis, then a MiFi device that allows you to access 5G at a moment’s notice is invaluable.

What is the difference between MiFi and WiFi?

WiFi works by connecting to a fixed broadband network, usually provided by an internet service provider (ISP), whereas MiFi works by connecting to a cellular network. While WiFi requires a fixed router to connect to the internet, MiFi provides a portable solution that can be easily carried around. This gives you the freedom and flexibility to take calls, meetings and answer emails wherever you go, plus it is one of the easiest devices to set up. One of the only downsides, however, is that it does rely on a strong network connection.
