Create your own WiFi hotspot with MiFi - The Star
PETALING JAYA: DiGi Telecommunications today unveiled a mobile WiFi portable wireless router to the market, which the company claimed is the first of its kind in Malaysia.
Best known as MiFi, the device is about the size of a typical mobile phone. It comes with a SIM card slot and works in a similar way to current WiFi routers that allow users to share their mobile broadband connection.
Users can connect up to five different WiFi-enabled devices such as a laptop, iPod touch, PSP and others to the MiFi.
It is like having your own mini WiFi hotspot at home or while on the go, DiGi said in a press release.
No price was announced but the MiFi device is currently available for pre-booking via the company's website. The pre-booking will close on June 20 and special offers await the early birds, DiGi said.
