My family tried the Singapore Flyer plus Captain Explorer Dukw tour package as a birthday gift for my wife. While waiting for our turn in the amphibious vehicle, I saw this tarpaulin standing near the reception area – It’s about pocket wifi for rent. Since we still have some time to spare, I asked the desk clerk to give me a flyer of the pocket wifi rental.

Some Benefits of Renting a Pocket WiFi
You can use your network’s data roaming service if you don’t like to frequently switch SIM cards during your tour however, there are some carriers who charge insanely huge amount per use or per 50MB per day of data. This can make you insane when you received your phone bill at the end of the cut off month.
If you rent a pocket wifi, you already knew the amount that you will spend per day and if you travel by group, you can save a lot when comes to data roaming expense. If you rent a pocket wifi, you don’t need to search for hotspots since you are already connected online anytime and anywhere.
