What a Better Way to Connect with Loved Ones While Traveling – Meet Teppy

The world has gotten smaller, High Speed internet has allowed us to talk to anyone in the world in real time videos. Social Media connections has allowed us to stay in touch with all our friends regardless of their location. Business can now be conducted seamlessly across borders with the advent of cloud-based project management applications available for enterprises.

Current challenges

Sharing your experiences with friends and loved ones is now a staple in global travel. Several social media applications such as SnapChat requires the photos to be uploaded on location right away. Facebook live is also an application that works wonders in terms of sharing your travel experiences.

Fast paced business also has applications to allow anyone travelling worldwide to keep in touch with their associates using communications tools like FaceTime, Skype,, and Google documents. All of these, has one important requirement; they all require a reliable internet connection.

There are mobile hotspots in many countries, almost all hotels have them, and a lot of AirBnb properties have their own WiFi router subscribed to a local provider. However, staying in your hotel while travelling is one of the worst mistakes you can make. The point of travelling is for the experience, and staying in your hotel is the most boring way to experience global travel.


Internet abroad can be better or worse from the country you are from, there are places in any country with a reliable WiFi hotspot. However, travelling in an unfamiliar country, you may not know where that is. It may also be located in a place where you do not need or want to go.

Internet abroad can be a challenge even in the local Starbucks, if you speak a language different from the local area. The same challenge applies in getting a local pocket wifi. The price may also differ greatly from what you are accustomed to. There are also challenges like lock-in periods, identity verifications, and bad customer support.

This is especially true when travelling across Europe to have Europe WiFi such as internet in London or Paris. The EU allows most people to cross borders around the European Union easily making it a great place to visit such cities for business or pleasure. This is a problem for your local WiFi, your internet may work in London, but may not work in Paris, Purchasing a sim card to work in your portable hotspot abroad requires many steps.

Most pleasure travellers do not spend more than a week in one city. Changing sim cards every week can be a hassle. Most people just bear with it or wait until they are back in their hotel to upload their experiences for sharing and posterity. If you’re a business traveller, this is unacceptable. “Going dark” even a few hours is very disadvantageous. It slows down business dealings and increases costs.

Global Nomads recommend locking in a reliable internet at a flat rate. Having a portable hotspot abroad that works great with local providers is a dream come true for them. TEP Wireless uses cloud powered Sim cards that automatically uses the best connection 4G / 3G in the best local network.
