It’s safe to assume that most of us wouldn’t be able to live without a decent Internet connection. We need one for work and play, and it’s a vital aspect of any modern life. Here are some of the ways via which you can access Internet without WiFi.

And when we lose it, it feels like a small part of our soul has died. Fortunately, there are dozens of ways to hop back online quickly, with little hassle. If you lose your wifi connection, or are struggling to get online, this post will be of some use to you.
So, if you’re going traveling by car, boat or plane, or are just staying at home, here are your answers. We’ve broken things down by location, so you can scroll through to find the one that’s right for you.
We’ve also assumed that you have wifi at home, so haven’t included any home solutions. Although, most of these will work in any location, so give them a try!
There are many, many reasons why a speedy internet connection is vital on holiday. From staying in touch with family members, keeping up to date with work and checking the weather – it’s key.
But, it’s easier said than done. A lot of holiday destinations aren’t as developed as the Western world, and that means wifi is hard to come by. If you find yourself in a pinch, here are a couple of solutions. Again, we broke them down by location – there’ll be some repetition here, too. Many solutions work in multiple places.
Assuming you’re in a well-built area, it should be relatively easy to acquire a 3G/4G signal. First, check if your phone provider gives you international coverage. You don’t want to run up a massive bill.
If you do have coverage, then your phone should be online anyway. If you don’t have coverage, you have several options. Firstly, visit a local store and pick up a router. Then locate a post office/tech shop of some description, and pick up a sim card. Slot the card in the router, and bingo! Wireless internet is yours.

Alternatively, you can turn your phone into a wifi hotspot, but you’ll need a 3G signal on your phone for that. This is useful if you want to connect a second device, like a laptop, to the net. This can incur heavy charges, so check with your provider first.
In the middle of the ocean, can you still connect?! Yes. Firstly, try and take a portable 3G/4G hotspot with you. These can be unreliable, but they may provide a stable enough connection. If you actually own the yacht or boat, then you can invest in systems to provide 3G and 4G for superyachts. This can keep you connected 24/7, with no losses.
For arguments sake, let’s say that the boat you’re on has a built-in wifi hotspot. Obviously, that would be the best solution in this case. Do a scan with your device and see what you pick up.
It’s pretty much impossible, as most flights will restrict the use of wireless signals. If you’re on a short flight, you won’t have long to wait it out. If you’re on a long flight, chances are they will have wifi on board anyway.
