All about WiFi in Korea: Free WiFi & Renting a WiFi Egg


1. Get free WiFi!

Don’t throw away your receipt because normally the password of WiFi is written on the receipt.

Also, there are commonly used WiFi routers that come with factory-set passwords. People can change the passwords but most of the people keep using given passwords.

2. Rent or buy a WiFi Egg

For those who want unlimited access to WiFi networks during their stay, rent a portable and personal WiFi Egg (WiFi router) online and pick it up at the airport (Incheon Intl. Airport/Gimhae 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.
