The MTN Pocket MiFi is a portable internet device that allows you to connect a maximum of ten (10) devices at a time. There are no limitations on the type of device you can connect to your MTN pocket MiFi, whether it is your mobile phone, tablet, laptop, game console, Smart TV, etc.
Unlike fibre broadband and other Wi-Fi devices, the MTN Pocket MiFi just as the name sounds is meant for the pocket and can be placed in your pocket and taken everywhere. Also, you don’t need a power supply to be able to use your MTN pocket MiFi, once you charge your battery to its maximum capacity, your MiFi can serve you for some time.
Apart from the advantages the MiFi has over WiFi that has been explained above, the MTN Pocket MiFi is also relatively cheaper than the normal WiFi and fixed broadbands offered by MTN. Thus, making it a good option for people with a small budget plan like students and small companies.

MTN Pocket MiFi Price and Which One To Buy
The 4G MTN pocket MiFi costs GHS 350 and the 3G pocket MiFi sells at GHS 130. Each of them comes with free data for either a month or three (3) months depending on when you buy it.
Ideally, you should buy the 4G MTN pocket MiFi instead of the 3G MTN pocket MiFi if you can afford it. Besides, the price difference between the two is not that big. The reason why I prefer the 4G MiFi to the 3G MiFi is that it is faster and therefore connects to the internet faster. One annoying thing is when the internet on your device is very slow.
When having meetings on Zoom, Google Meet, or Microsoft Teams faster internet will result in faster connection and clear audio and video throughout your meeting.
