Today, travelers depend on their smartphones and Wi-Fi enabled apps. With mobile hotspots, they no longer get hit with expensive data roaming charges from their cellular providers. Plus, they avoid the hassle of locally finding, purchasing, and installing new SIM cards when traveling from one country to another.

Travelwifi mobile devices make internet connections effortless by automatically finding the strongest cell signal available. It doesn’t matter which country you’re in. Now your phone, tablet, and laptop can surf the web with a secure, fast, private mobile Wi-Fi network that you can share with up to five devices.

“Travelwifi will first be focused on North America and Europe travel, offering portable Wi-Fi hotspots for both rental and purchase,” DHI CEO Wallace Davis said. “Travelwifi offers unlimited internet, daily rates, and high bandwidth plans.”

Travelwifi has officially launched their inaugural website with plans to continue rolling out new features. For customers, this merge expands the Travelwifi network of pickup locations throughout UK and French airports as well as numerous downtown locations.

“The new Travelwifi brand will evolve over the next year, with a new website and marketing campaign to reach international travelers on four continents,” Davis explained.

ABOUT DHI

The DHI Telecom Group, LLP, was founded in 2007 by Wallace Davis and Jerry Hartless, experienced military and IT specialists partnered to deliver ISP technology in military zones.

DHI competed against hundreds of companies, and in Q4, 2010, was awarded a long-term DoD contract. DHI continues to deliver advanced technology, including fiber-optic cable, mobile Wi-Fi devices, and high-speed internet to more than 20 bases as the largest ISP provider in active war zones.

Over the past two years, Sapphire hotspots have become essential devices for military, corporate, and leisure travelers.
