Getting WiFi in France

We use the internet for so many of our daily activities that staying connected wherever you go now seems more like a necessity than a luxury.

When traveling abroad, however, there is usually the question of how to do that without running into high roaming charges (or even whether your mobile device will be able to connect to a global network at all!). If you know you will need to make phone calls, it may be worth it to look into getting a French SIM card, but if what you'll need is primarily a way to get online, some french companies have come up with a simple, affordable solution.

Travel Wifi and My Webspot rent mobile hotspots (also called mifi). It is a small device that fits in your pocket, and allows you to stay connected for your stay in France without paying the huge data roaming costs, at any moment (hotel, street...).


  • Your personal Wi-Fi hotspot
  • no data roaming costs
  • anytime and anywhere
  • 3G or 4G speed
  • available throughout France
  • Automatic connectivity of all devices
  • English speaking support services
  • flexible and customer orientated

How does it work

  • Rent your mobile hotspot with a few clicks on line before departure.
  • The hotspot is delivered via standard mail (France) or courier services (inside Paris) to your French address (hotel, rental flat or house...).
  • Once you have received your hotspot, the connection is absolutely unlimited in 3G or 4G speed.
  • To connect to the internet simply turn on the mobile hotspot, wait a few seconds and connect to the Wifi signal. The Wifi signal can be shared with up to 10 devices at the same time.
  • The return is very easy. A prepaid envelope is provided. You just drop in any mailbox! 


My Webspot is also available through partnerships with tourism professionals such as Hotels, Tour Operators, Travel Agencies, so that you can book your hotspots in a rapid process (less than 3 minutes) to order, retrieve and use the hotspot.
