How to stay connected in Barcelona during MWC 2019?


Yet another year, The Mobile World Congress is here, the most important mobile industry congress in the world. Who can afford not to stay connected during this great event? We give you the solution! Below we mention several Wi-Fi connection options in the city of Barcelona and how they work.

Airport: Barcelona’s airport will receive its visitors with a fast and free Wi-Fi connection, although obviously this connection only works inside the airport. Access to WiFi is simple, in order to use it and enjoy Wifi on our first moments in Barcelona we will be asked to register by filling in some personal data.

Urban WiFi network: In the city of Barcelona there’s a public Wi-Fi network to which we can connect in several different locations of the city. The access points to this urban Wifi are varied (squares, parks, bus stops, etc) and access is also simple, but unfortunately it works at a slow speed and security is not guaranteed.

Touristic buses: On board of tour buses, free Wi-Fi is often offered, although the connection speed varies and fluctuates a lot depending on the geographical point where the bus is at and the quantity of people connected to the network. Obviously, it can only be used when we are on board.

WiFi in Hotels and apartments: Almost every hotel and apartment establishments offer WiFi to their customers. In many luxury hotels this connection is not included on the fee and can cost up to 10 euros per person per day. Elsewhere, the connection to WiFi is usually free and the performance offered by these networks is variable, during peak hours it’s generally bad (morning hours and night hours, when most guests are physically in the hotel or apartment). If what you need is a secure network, to work and manage private data, we do not recommend that you use these networks since they are considered the most dangerous and insecure of public networks due to its strong spread (necessary to reach all corners of the building), that makes it easy for any outsider intruder to connect.

Bars and restaurants: A very useful option is to connect in a bar or restaurant. The most typical establishments are Starbucks or McDonalds. In other establishments they use networks like Socialwibox, where the client can access to Internet in exchange for a like on the establishment’s Facebook page.
In other places, the owners directly share their personal Wi-Fi network, which makes the connection VERY insecure, due to the lack of safety measures to prevent intrusions, many of which do not even need a password, so anyone can join.

FON Network: Fon is a hotspots worldwide network (kind of a global Wi-Fi community). On their website you just check where the Fon hotspots are located (which are shared routers from other Fon users). If you’re interested in connecting to one you’ll need to be near the hotspot and buy a day pass through your app. This idea is brilliant, but on the down side, you’ll only be able to use it when being near the hotspot.

Wifivox: If what you need is security, mobility and a fast connection, your best option is Wifivox, our portable devices can be carried from one place to another and therefore enjoy connection anywhere, you can also share your Wifi connection with whoever you want, since you can connect up to ten devices at once and enjoy maximum speed (4G).

Deliveries and returns to your hotel or apartment in Barcelona and Madrid are completely free, you can also pick up your Wifivox device in our offices or at the airport.

You can enjoy a 10% discount on your Wifivox rental (for exclusive use of attendees at MWC 2019). Use the following discount code on your online booking to enjoy this promotion: WIFIVOXMWC2019

People from all over the world attend each year and many of the most important artists in history have performed on its stages.

2. Coachella

Another of its great attractions is that many celebrities such as models, actors, singers, influencers… attend Coachella, so people from all over the world go to the festival to try to meet their favorite idols.

3. Lollapalooza
Where: Chicago, USA

Lollapalooza is an annual music festival that hosts popular bands of alternative rock, heavy metal, punk rock, hip hop and electronic music. Dance and comedy performances are also carried out. A weekend-long festival held in Grant Park in Chicago. Jane’s Addiction’s lead singer, Perry Farrell, created this festival in 1991. In 2011 the festival started to be held in several countries outside the US including Chile, Brazil, Argentina and Germany. However the original essence of the festival still remains in Chicago.

4. Reading and Leeds Festival
Where: Reading and Leeds, United Kingdom

The events take place simultaneously on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the August bank holiday weekend. Reading Festival, the oldest of the two, began in 1989. It is the biggest music festival in the UK and many of the UK’s most successful rock and pop bands have performed here, including The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, The Kinks, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, The Who or Cream among others.

5. Primavera Sound
Where: Barcelona, ​​Spain

One of the most important music festivals in Spain, it embraces any style or genre, although it seeks quality and offers essentially pop, rock and the more underground tendencies of electronic music and dance. In each edition, the festival has been increasing the attendance of the public and the media impact of the press, radio and television, both nationally and internationally.

6. Fuji Rock
Where: Yuzawa, Niigata Prefecture, Japan

Fuji Rock is the largest outdoor music event in Japan and one of the largest and most recognized music festivals in Asia and the world.

Today it has a medieval area in which one can recreate Viking battles and try dishes from that era.

8. Sziget Festival
Where: Budapest, Hungary

One of the largest music and cultural festivals in Europe, held annually in August. Each year more than 1,000 performances are held, it has grown from being relatively unfrequented to one of the most important European rock festivals.

How to stay connected during MWC 2018


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.

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

Wifi connection for the Barcelona Mobile World Congress 2017


At the end of this month, between February 27th and March 2nd, the 12th edition of the Mobile World Congress will take place in Barcelona. As in previous years, Wifivox will be the preferred pocket wifi solution for visitors to the MWC 2017 who need constant and unlimited data access 24/7.

As some of you may already know, the MWC, otherwise known as Mobile World Congress, is the largest exhibition worldwide that’s focused in global mobile industry, as well as a conference in which representatives of many prominent companies of the technological sector from across the globe will be present to search for industry opportunities, doing deals and networking. Annual attendance ranges generally between 90.000 and 100.000 people, which makes the MWC a business phenomenon and an obligatory visit to any potential promoter of international collaboration in mobile wireless communications.

Considering the activities held in the conference as well as the tools to be displayed, connecting to the Internet is an undeniable priority for every attendee. During the event itself and for business purposes, the necessity for instant and unlimited access is essential, but also for private use when the busy day is done, to allow oneself a moment of leisure. Needless to say, with such a remarkable crowd in a limited space at a given time, a secure connection is, if anything, imperative.

That is exactly what the flexibility of the Wifivox can offer: fast Internet connection for both work and play. The beauty of it is its unlimited data download meaning hours of secure connection for business purposes and private use afterwards or in the meantime.

For this reason, and for the exclusive benefit of the MWC 2017 attendees, we have prepared a special 10% discount on your pocket wifi rental and free delivery and collection to your hotel or apartment in Barcelona city. We believe that Internet should be easily accessible both practically and economically speaking so we would like to present this offer to make the MWC 2017 experience the more enjoyable for everybody.
