Coverage

The Italy Mi Fi Rental offers coverage on both Wind and Tre which are two of the carriers in Italy. It will also work anywhere else in Europe without roaming fees. Your Mi Fi will automatically connect on whichever carrier offers the better signal wherever you happen to be. While coverage is excellent and extensive, there is no carrier in the world who can absolutely guarantee 100% that there will be coverage in a particular location. For example, if you are renting a villa in the countryside or in the mountains or any other remote location, while very likely that there is coverage, we cannot guarantee coverage. The only way to know 100% if there is coverage where you will be staying is to ask the owner of the villa or apartment, or the hotel staff if you are staying at a hotel, if there is data coverage with Wind or Tre.

To view coverage maps, please click on the respective coverage links for Wind and Tre. This links will show you coverage maps for 3G and 4G data services https://opensignal.com/networks/italia/wind-copertura and https://www.tre.it/assistenza/prodotti-e-servizi/copertura.

Italy Data Sim Card

snowboardchic99 from Eastern Sierra, CA

starstarstarstarstar 5 - recommended

I rented a Sim card for my Galaxy phone. It was a little confusing at first to get it installed and use it but once I figured it out it worked great and I'm so glad I had it. My particular number already had some money on it which was nice, but I easily found a convenient store where I could purchase more for it.

I rented a car for 2 weeks and drove all over Italy. I cannot imagine trying to do that drive with just a map. Being able to have data access to Google Maps was the best thing and saved me so much time. I was outside of Venice, over to Trieste, into the Dolomites, Como area, in Tuscany, Amalfi, Rome and more. I pretty much had service everywhere. There were definitely a few areas where it didn't come in but that's just like our cell service here-it's not 100%. But I found that usually those areas had wifi you could use. I was able to Viber (I prefer the quality of Viber over Skype) with my family back in the U.S. and upload to Facebook. I used the data constantly and had plenty to spare.

Having an Italian number was great so when I met locals they could get in touch with me. The one thing that I didn't like but got around was you couldn't just reply to a text message. Somehow the country codes and stuff got messed up so while it looked like the text message went through, it really didn't. I can't remember the exact details but I had a local help me and we figured out what I needed to dial in order to get the text to go through. Other than that, it was great having it. Initially I thought the price to be too expensive but after the fact I'm so glad I had it that I think it was well worth the price.

Be Careful

MM from San Diego, CA

starstarstarstarstar 2 - not recommended

Didn't work for us in the Tuscan countryside. Per their own advertising they say good anywhere in Italy. We couldn't get it to work at our villa. When we went to the city it worked fine BUT battery life was maybe a couple hours on our unit. Waste of money on our trip. I would suggest buying the travel package for data on your cell phone. Our cell phone did work in the countryside. Had we stayed in Rome or Florence it would have been fine.

Cellular Abroad Response
The coverage in Italy on the carrier we use (TIM) covers 99.7% of all users in Italy. While you do not have to necessarily be in a major city to get coverage, there is no such thing as 100% coverage. While TIM is the largest carrier in Italy, it does not work in every corner of the country...as unfortunately you found out. You were in a villa in the countryside as you mentioned. The only way to know 100% if there is coverage in a remote area is to ask the owner of the villa if there is data coverage with Telecom Italia Mobile in their villa. And we do apologize that you did not have service where you were. I also see we gave you a 50% discount.

Cons

Tuscany Traveler from Oregon

We spent 10 days in Italy, mainly in Tuscany. We were staying in Cortona, but traveled to Siena, Florence, and Rome. We took the MIFI with us and never had a problem. We used it on the go to look up directions, information about sites and even were able to Skype our family back home with it. It is small and portable, which made it extremely convenient to carry around with us during the day. We had four devices connected to it and had very few problems whatsoever.

Very helpful device...

Ray from West Chester, PA

starstarstarstarstar 4 - recommended

Very helpful to have in Italy. We were there for a month, staying in two different places. One advertised wi-fi, but didn't really have it - the other didn't even pretend to. Once working (the first couple of days were a little sketchy), it worked pretty much anytime we needed it to. Nothing like broadband, but waaaaaay better than nothing. You have to be careful with data - it's not really unlimited. You only get 10 gb at 3G speeds and then it's down to 2G. You can burn through 10 gigs in a month pretty easily if you don't pay attention to what you're doing. But if you do, it's OK. On balance, our month in Italy and our ability to stay in touch was greatly enhanced by the portable hot-spot.

Hot Spot - Abroad

Jeani from Italy

The hotspot worked exceptionally well in Italy where we were driving so that I could use Google Maps to find where we were headed at all times without having to find an open WiFi site.

Used on recent trip to Italy where wifi connection was not always adequate. Our bed and breakfasts/hotels were usually good but a conference center and train travel had no or poor signal strength. This hotspot solved all of these issues. If a hotel did not have good, free wifi it did not matter. We were covered. Helped several other people at times to connect so now they are fans as well.

We requested a spare battery and were told that one might be included, but no promise. When the unit arrived with no spare battery, two days before we left for Italy, it was too late to buy a spare online. The battery does not last a full day, hence we lost our GPS. We were told GPS would not cause us to exceed the 10GB of data credit, yet when we were at our home base the internet was painfully slow even with only one device using it and even slower when two devices were using it - so slow that the internet was nonfunctional. Using an ipad for GPS worked fairly well throughout both Tuscany and Umbria, though the map display would often go blank. I think the mi-fi was too expensive for the performance we received. If you want it for GPS I'd recommend paying for GPS in your rental car.

Unfortunate Connection Issues

ItalyTraveler from Kansas City, MO

starstarstarstarstar 3 - not recommended

We rented the WiFi device for our trip to Italy to use with our Android cell phones and laptop. We downloaded Skype on our phones and secured an account so we could make calls to family in the USA as we don't have international phones. We also wanted to use it for internet access to aid in navigating the cities we were visiting.

Upon arrival in Italy we attempted to enter the PIN listed on the sticker on the device. It was in all lower case and wouldn't work. Turns out it should have been in Upper Case; would have been nice to have been listed that way. Finally got the PIN to work but the device wouldn't connect to either of our cell phones or laptop. Called the CA phone number and they couldn't get it to work either. They offered to ship us a new one and adjust our charges but we wouldn't receive it for 5 more days because it was Friday in the US, then delay with customs.

We decided to try the device we had again the next day and it started working. It worked for a few more days, then connection was lost again. By this time we had the new one and were able to use that one.

Cellular Abroad were very nice to deal with but it was just frustrating that we couldn't use the device when we needed it and if we hadn't had the replacement one, we would have had even more trouble.

Great Deal! But not a GPS

Dale the cheapo from Kingston, ON

starstarstarstarstar 4 - recommended

Great device! Using the wifi with my iPad was mostly a great experience. I planned on using it instead of getting a GPS for the car. It was too slow to keep up, so that was just me being cheap.

Using it in the cities while we were walking was great! Venice with all its little alleyways and canals was a breeze.

Very few places did we lose a signal, we were all over the North of Italy.

I would recommend they include a car charger for it. I had one for my iPad and it worked well.

It was really nice that it was one price, because we used it ALL the time.

Lissa from Newark, New Jersey

The product was a little on the expensive side to rent, but due to the fact that there was no internet where my family is from in Italy, this was a real lifesaver. There were certain parts where this didn't work at all, but when it found a connection, it was lightning fast. It was a bit hard trying to figure out what all the different-colored blinking lights meant at different times, and it was also difficult to shut off. The battery needed constant charging.

Triman1 from Dresher, PA

I travel outside of the country every year for pleasure but I am usually also working while away. I have had many problems in the past with the internet plans I've taken with me - they lacked a consistent connection and were flat out slow when they worked. This past April I traveled throughout Italy by motorcoach for two weeks and used CellularAbroad for the 1st time and it's Italy MiFi. It's performance was fantastic, and not just while I was at work in my hotel room. I used it several hours a day while traveling on the motorcoach in the rural countryside. The difference from the companies I rented from on previous trips was like night and day. I'll be using CellularAbroad again this spring in Panama and expecting similar results on the canal.

It's a good thing I ignored the warning and tried the wifi password before leaving for Italy because it didn't work and the unit couldn't be reset to default. They next dayed me another one but once I got to Italy I found out that it wasn't activated which caused me to lose 2 days of my rental until I could contact them. I found out that you can buy an Italian phone with built in Mifi reasonably once you get to Italy. I recommend this.

I purchased this modem to use in Italy on vacation to create a wifi spot that I could use my ipad and laptop with so I wouldn't incur enormous charges for internet use. Initially the modem did not work, but after getting on the website and clicking the chat option, I was given extraordinary customer service and the modem was fixed remotely for me. After that I had no problems. I am pretty good with technology, so I was able to get to the chat option and get someone to help me. However, I am not sure what would have happened if I didn't have the saavy that I do. Nevertheless, after customer service helped me, the modem worked perfoctly and I could take it anyway I went in Italy and had an instant wifi spot. It was perfect and exactly what I needed.

Exceptions can be made on a limited basis, even if you are leaving early in the morning - we can usually get your Wi-Fi hotspot rental to you. Please call our 800 number (rather than order via the web) in order to confirm that we can get you a phone rental on time.

Can I charge this MiFi on my trip?
