At the #MotorolaRAZR event my Skyroam Solis was once again a lifesaver. The venue had pretty decent Wifi coverage but when I wanted to upload my video, I just switched on this roaming hotspot, dropped it back in my bag and kept it running for the rest of the day. My esteemed colleague from Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung could not connect back to the mothership via VPN over Wifi or his Pixel 4, so I invited him to be my guest. vowe is a good mother.

Instant worry-free Wifi without congestion. The company has an impressive list of 300 networks in 130+ countries where this thing just works. It can even operate on different networks in your domestic country.

There are different packages available. 1 GB for 5 €, unlimited day pass for 8 € or flat monthy fee for 80 €. You can even rent the device if you want to try it out first or take it on vacation. My Solis has a bunch of features I don't need, like a camera. The simpler Solis Lite gets the job done as well. And they double as a power bank.

Why does it show 10 GB remaining? This doesn’t match the packages you mention. Do they reduce speed after 10 GB?

Mine was provided with 12 GB out of the box. It's an exception. They will reduce speed depending on usage, but I have not hit any roadblocks so far.

Das sieht spannend aus. Sucht sich das Gerät innerhalb Landes ein beliebiges verfügbares Netz oder bündelt es mehrere verfügbare Netze? Meine Use Cases wären Zugfahrten und ein Standort mit miserabler DSL-Anbindung.

Ich habe keine Ahnung. Das Gerät sagt nicht, mit welchem Netz es verbunden ist. Ein beliebiges Netz kann es nicht sein, da Skyroam ja mit den Netzbetreibern roamen muss. Die schlechte Netzabdeckung der Deutschen Bahn wirst du damit auch nicht heilen.
