An Ultimate Guide to Pocket WiFi (WiFi Egg) Rental in Korea

Find out how to get free WiFi and rent WiFi Eggs in Korea!

Stay connected in Korea by renting a Pocket WiFi, or a WiFi Egg!

As Korea is one of the most well developed IT countries, you can easily get WiFi in any store, especially in the cafes.

But if you want more safe and fast access to WiFi networks at all times, then renting a portable WiFi router, a pocket WiFi or Wifi Egg, is perfect for you.

Renting a Pocket WiFi in Korea 


Most pocket Wi-Fi rentals in Korea can be paid for in advance online.

After you book online, you can simply pick up the device at different locations, including airports (Incheon Intl. Airport/Gimhae Intl. Airport/Gimhae Intl. Airport/Daegu Intl. Airport/Jeju Intl. Airport), and return it afterward.

If you want to buy it instead of renting it, you will need an Alien Registration Card (ARC), which is an ID card for foreigners staying in Korea.
