Yes, the SIM works on mobile hotspots such as WIFI and MIFI Routers. 

Wraptel does not support hardware, only the SIM. Therefore a good understanding of configuring the device settings is required. The Data SIM will not automatically populate the settings in routers/hotspots; they will need to be manually configured. Note that many routers reduce the speed of the internet which is not in our control.

The Service requires the device to be set:

  • Manually select the network carrier
  • Manually set the APN.
