What is mi-fi

Mi-fi is the short name for mobile Wi-Fi. We recommend this for new users who want to get online quickly. It uses a sim card, instead of a phone line or cable, so there is no need to wait for a broadband installation engineer.

Mi-fi is a wireless device that creates a local wi-fi signal, to be able to access the internet. It is similar to a home broadband router. It is also mobile, so the internet connection can used outside the home.
