Connectify Helps Travelers Avoid Getting Ripped Off By Exorbitant Wi-Fi Costs

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With the holiday season rapidly approaching, travelers will once again find themselves in a familiar, and quite expensive, predicament. Most hotels charge guests anywhere from $12.95 or more for high-speed Internet access on each device, per day. For a single person with an iPad, laptop, and e-reader, the costs can skyrocket. Connectify aims to help travelers save money with its flagship PC software router, Connectify Hotspot, which lets consumers get all of their devices online without additional costs.

With Connectify Hotspot, users can transform their laptop or PC into a real Wi-Fi hotspot to share any available Internet connection with other computers and mobile devices. By paying for high-speed Internet access on only one laptop, hotel guests can use Hotspot to share the hotel Wi-Fi with their tablets and smartphones at the click-of-a-button.

Today, more and more consumers carry mobile broadband modems that offer 3G or 4G Internet access on-the-go. While broadband USB sticks are handy for getting one laptop onto the Internet, consumers are unable to use them in conjunction with more than one device. Upgrading to Connectify Hotspot PRO lets users get the most out of their mobile broadband cards, sharing their 3G/4G connection with the kids' iPads while they work comfortably from the passenger seat on a family road-trip.

Save time and money with Connectify Hotspot this holiday season:

  • High-speed Internet access fees can be exorbitant at most hotels. Pay for one PC, and use Connectify Hotspot to share Internet with any other laptop or mobile device.
  • Use Connectify Hotspot PRO's 3G and 4G sharing feature to share that mobile broadband connection with the whole family.
  • Traveling with children? Take advantage of Connectify Hotspot's global firewall feature to control Internet connectivity on the kids' devices
