What is a Teppy / pocket wifi?
A Teppy – also known as a pocket wifi, MiFi, wireless dongle, global / mobile hotspot – works similarly to your wireless router at home. When turned on, it creates a wireless hotspot which anyone in the vicinity can connect to, assuming they have the password.
But, unlike your wireless router at home, Teppy is small, portable (it fits in your pocket), doesn’t require any setup, cables or installation, and works seamlessly over the world. Simply turn on and connect!
This means you can travel the world with your smartphone, laptop, tablet, game consoles etc., knowing that you can securely and reliably connect all of your devices to the internet, whenever you want.

How does Teppy actually connect worldwide?
Non-technical answer: Imagine a little gnome lived inside your phone, and every time you traveled abroad it would swap your SIM card for you, so that you're always connected to local networks, at local rates. This is basically what’s going on inside your Teppy.
Technical answer: Teppy uses patented virtual SIM technology to allow seamless connectivity all over the world. When you power Teppy on, it will automatically figure out what country it’s in, and choose the best network operator for you, via a bank of SIM cards it can access in the cloud. It will then connect to the data network of that operator. All this stuff happens discreetly in the background, so you never have to fuss with it.
