Learn more about the mobile internet

What is mobile internet?

Mobile internet means internetting via your telecom providers’ GSM network. You can do this using your laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Just as with smartphone charges, you pay internet charges through your subscription or prepaid data plan. Internetting on your smartphone subscription or data plan is often very expensive when you’re abroad. Bitebird circumnavigates these exorbitant rates: in every country, we have entered into agreements with quality telecom providers that are prepared to charge normal, local rates to foreign visitors.

What is data roaming?

If you use the internet when abroad, it goes through the network of the telecom providers in the corresponding country. Your own telecom provider charges extremely high costs for this international internet use, so many people turn off data roaming when abroad. They stop using the internet to avoid paying the high charges. Thanks to Bitebird, you can use the internet abroad knowing that you will be paying the same rates for internet as the locals. So, normal, low rates!

What is Wi-Fi/wireless internet?

Wi-Fi internet is wireless internet that, in most cases, is offered very locally and for free. The provider of the Wi-Fi network supplies the connection with the mobile network. The so-called Wi-Fi networks or hotspots do have a limited range. The advantage of Bitebird is that you have a much larger range. Your Bitebird will be in range anywhere where there is coverage from a telecom provider. So with Bitebird, you actually have Wi-Fi in your inside pocket.
