Once again the world’s most important and largest gathering for the mobile industry is here. This year the Mobile World Congress will take place from the 26th of February to the 1st of March in the city of Barcelona.

Visitors attending the MWC 2018 will need to be connected 24/7. In the city of Barcelona you can find several choices for wifi connection:

– Barcelona Public Wifi: There is a free citywide WIFI system that functions throughout the city but it works slowly and it’s not a very secure choice. It could save your needs in a very specific moment, but as mentioned earlier, it’s a slow network, it’s public (so security is not guaranteed) and hotspots are only available in specific spots.

– Airport wifi: Barcelona will welcome you at the airport with a free and fast wifi, that usually works fine. If you need extra bandwidth there is a paid premium rate. The downside is you can only use it while you’re there at the airport.

– Touristic bus wifi: The touristic city-tour buses are a great option to get a view of the city but the wifi onboard works poorly if the bus is full and you can only connect onboard obviously.

– Hotels and rental apartments: they usually offer free wifi but performance is really poor in most of them during the first hours of the morning and during the night which is the time when most of the guests are at the hotel, and using wifi at the same time. Also can only use it while you are at the hotel, and 5 star hotels normally charge you for the wifi service.

– Bars and restaurants: they normally offer free wifi. If you don’t see any banner announcing the wifi service you can ask the waiter and they will sometimes give you the wifi password. Security is a real problem as Wifi networks don’t have any access control and sometimes they don’t have even password.

– Wifivox: If what you need is security, mobility and a fast unlimited connection your best choice is Wifivox. You can carry it around with you anywhere, connect ten devices at once and enjoy unlimited data at maximum speed. We can deliver it for free to your hotel or apartment, collect it at our stores or pick it up at the airport.

You will enjoy 10% discount on your pocket wifi rental with free delivery and return to your hotel or apartment in Barcelona. (For the exclusive benefit of the MWC 2018 attendees). Please use of the following promo code on your online booking form to take advantage of this offer: WIFIVOXMWC2018
