Changi Recommends WiFi Routers

by Edmund Tay (Ed Unloaded) on June 29, 2015

With the popularity of Budget air, everyone is bitten by the travel bug! Singaporeans love to travel and we love our connectivity! We crave for Internet access, and we want to stay connected to the internet and to our instant messaging services. To keep telecommunication costs low, we need a quick solution to our problems. How about renting a WIFI router from Changi Recommends? With plans that cater to most parts of the world, this wireless WIFI device might just be a lifesaver?

Travelling to a foreign land with a new language is always daunting. The most intense moment of every trip, starts when the plane lands, and when we are trying to find our bearings in a new land. Having our mobile and communication devices ready for use, is always an added bonus. This dream is now a reality with Changi Airport's Overseas Router Service. Just drop by a Changi Recommends Shop at Changi Aiport, and you are good to go! The perfect place for local and foreign SIM cards!

For the novice, what is a wireless WIFI Router?

A Wireless router is a device that allows one to connect to the Internet wirelessly. For travelers, it means that with this router, you can connect up to 10 devices. If you have tablets and multiple mobiles, you do not need to get multiple SIM cards. Just connect up to your WIFI Router, and you are ready to go!

Avoid Expensive Data Charges!

All of us have heard stories of exorbitant data charges when Singaporeans travel overseas. These horror stories have made travelers paranoid, whenever they use their data services overseas. We are worried to Watsapp and surf the Internet.

However, with the Overseas WIFI Router, all you need to do is to pay daily charges for unlimited usage* (Within fair data usage, do check the Changi Recommends for more details). For just $12- $25 per day (depending on location), you can solve your travel all your travel woes.

Here is a rough estimate of costs and breakdown for some popular locations:

From the example above, travelling to China for 5 days, will only cost a rental charge of $60.

For selected countries, you can also work on just 1 router, and roam freely among the different EU countries. Recently, we traveled to London and Paris with just 1 router. No worries when we traveled to a new country, and worrying about which network to hook up on.

How do I get a WIFI Router Device?

In order to pick up your terminal, all you need to do is to head to your nearest "Changi Recommends" shop at Changi Airport. With an outlet in each airport terminal, you just can't miss them.

Are their any complicated setup instructions for users, when I reach my destination?

The good news for all users, is that the WIFI wireless router is a plug and play device. Just turn on your WIFI router, and search for your WIFI device on your hp or tablet. Just connect, and you are good to go. Network range is about 10 meters if there are no obstacles in the way. Battery life of the device varies per location, varying from 4 to 15 hours.
