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.

  1. Hello, would you like to help me regarding sim card registration information? I want to know that how many no of sim cards are registered on my ID ? would you like to help me how to know about this? from where i can get the information?

    1. Hi Mamoon,

      According to the law in Korea, only 1 sim card with a voice plan can be registered on your ID.
      You can use a Korean phone number only for up to 90 days. If you need to use it for more than 90 days, you may need to have an ARC issued or buy another sim card with a different number once the original one is expired.
      We hope this helps you.

      Thank you.
