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

Como estar conectado durante el MWC 2018


Un año más, el evento mundial más importante para la industria de le comunicación móvil ha llegado. Esta vez el MWC se celebrará del 26 de Febrero al 1 de Marzo en la ciudad de Barcelona.

Se trata de la mayor feria de la industria móvil en el mundo, e indudablemente la más importante. Es una gran oportunidad para operadores móviles, fabricantes de dispositivos, proveedores de tecnología, comerciales y creadores de contenidos procedentes de todas partes del mundo para presentar sus ideas, conseguir importantes ofertas de negocio y darse a conocer dentro de la industria.

Los asistentes del MWC necesitarán estar conectados 24/7. En la ciudad de Barcelona se pueden encontrar varias opciones en cuanto a conexión wifi.

Wifi Público de Barcelona: Existe un sistema de wifi gratuito que funciona por toda la ciudad, aunque este sistema es muy lento y no muy seguro. Podría ser de ayuda en un momento de necesidad, pero como hemos mencionado antes la conexión es muy lenta y al ser pública la seguridad no está garantizada.

Wifi del aeropuerto: Barcelona te recibirá en el aeropuerto con conexión wifi rápida y gratuita, normalmente funciona bien. Si se necesita mayor ancho de banda se debe pagar una tarifa premium. La única desventaja es que esta conexión solo funciona dentro del aeropuerto.

Wifi en los autobuses turísticos: El autobús turístico es una muy buena elección si quieres ver una panorámica de la ciudad, pero el wifi de a bordo funciona muy lentamente, sobre todo si está lleno. Además, solo podrás hacer uso de esta conexión mientras estés a bordo del autobús.

Hoteles y Apartamentos: normalmente ofrecen wifi gratis para los huéspedes pero no se suele tratar de una conexión fluida. Durante las primeras horas de la mañana y de la noche la conexión es muy lenta, ya que a estas horas muchas personas se encuentran en sus habitaciones y se conectan al mismo tiempo. Naturalmente, este sistema solo funciona estando dentro del hotel o apartamento. En hoteles 5 estrellas la conexión wifi suele ser de pago.

Restaurantes, bares y cafeterías: normalmente ofrecen wifi gratis, si no hay información que indique el servicio Wifi siempre le puedes preguntar a algún camarero y quizás te faciliten la contraseña. La seguridad en estos casos es un problema ya que en estas redes no se controlan los accesos, en algunos casos ni siquiera se requiere contraseña para conectarse.

Wifivox: Si lo que necesitas es seguridad, movilidad y una conexión rápida e ilimitada la mejor opción es Wifivox. Se puede llevar de un sitio a otro para tener conexión en cualquier lugar, pueden conectarse hasta diez dispositivos a la vez y disfrutar de datos ilimitados a máxima velocidad. Envios gratuitos a tu hotel o apartamento, recogida en nuestras oficinas o en el aeropuerto.

Podrás disfrutar de un 10% de descuento en tu alquiler Wifivox, envío y recogida gratuitos a tu hotel o apartamento dentro de Barcelona. (Para el uso exclusivo de los asistentes del MWC 2018).

Por favor usa el siguiente código promocional en tu alquiler online para poder disfrutar de esta oferta: WIFIVOXMWC2018

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
