Vodafone Pocket Wifi Review – Video Review

Here is my Vodafone pocket wifi review which I recorded in 2011. I’ve been using the device for almost 4 months now and I continue to be impressed with the quality of the connection and the price. It continues to provide great value for money for anyone who requires an affordable portable wifi solution.


UPDATE – The promotion I mentioned in the video has expired. The new one is a little better – 3 month’s 1/2 price access when you sign up online

Additional information I forgot to mention!

1) Battery time is around 4-5 hours while unplugged but I suggest running it off the mains power while at home so it’s always fully charged if you take it out with you.

2) I’ve been using the connection for gaming, namely Starcraft 2 and I’ve had no issues with latency. Same deal for Steam games such as Team Fortress 2 and Counter-Strike playing on Australian servers like the ones run by Internode. I can’t comment on services such as Xbox Live but I see no reason for it not to work great as well given my experience on the PC & Mac.

I hope you guys find the Vodafone pocket wifi review useful for your purchasing decision! Follow this link to sign up online and secure the online deal.

P.S – Data allowance has just been increased across all plans!

I agree re: this product. Got it only yesterday, but the points I have noted so far are:
– stronger signal than my pre-paid 3 wireless broadband usb connection (same network, don’t forget).
– soooooooo simple to use and to connect to. No installation needed etc
– plugs in to my old pc for charging and, as a result, I have no need for a [phone line/modem etc
– we had the pc, an ipad, iphone and laptop all connected and all using the net last night, just to test it and it worked fine – good speed etc

Hopefully, my experience will continue to be a good one.

is there lag when you use Xbox Live with this thing?

Not sure as I don’t have first hand experience using it for Xbox Live. I’ve had no issues with PC gaming in games like WoW, SC2 & TF2 on node servers.

Does this work at home.. Not just hotels ,airports and such.

Yes Brandy, it definitely works at home. It is a device you take with you so regardless of where you are (unless it’s in the middle of the desert) it will have reception.
