All about the Pocket WiFi rental service in Thailand

1) Which pocket WiFi service should I use?

Smile Pocket WiFi is one of the most recommended services in Thailand. I personally tried their pocket WiFi, and it was fast and stable at all times. It was easy to connect, and fast enough to stream videos and even have a video chat. The best part is not only they offer unlimited data, but their coverage is also all over Thailand.

2) Pocket WiFi vs. SIM card, which one should I choose?

To have internet connection in Thailand, you have 2 options: SIM card and pocket WiFi. Both have their pros and cons. See the table below and find out which option is more suitable for you!

Cons • Need to carry an extra device
