Here's the scoop:

You place an order for the pocket wifi and it's delivered to your door a few days before your trip. Just switch it on once you're abroad and you'll have access to the Internet wherever you go, and can connect up to 5 Wi-Fi enabled devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc.) all at the same time.

Once you return home, just toss your Tep in the post. It comes with a pre-paid return label, so no need to fuss about with shipping. Or, Tep has various drop-off locations throughout the world, including London Heathrow Airport. This makes return super easy.

Prices start at £4.50 per day, which compared to most network carriers can save you up to 95% on your phone bill. And it's important to note that because it's your own private Internet access point, your connection is encrypted with an anonymous IP address to protect your privacy. You definitely don't want to become a statistic when it comes to relying dodgy hotspots abroad.

Tep Wireless offers a dedicated customer support team as well as a 100% satisfaction guarantee, which definitely takes the stress out of using a new piece of technology. The company's website outlines the countries covered, which is quite extensive. There's coverage in countries across 5 continents, including the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia.

Tep was founded in 2009 with a simple vision: to create a unique mobile service that allows travelers to remain completely mobile and connected, only paying local rates while abroad. You can find out more about the company on their website, or follow them @tepwireless on Twitter and Facebook.
