MiFi is a brand name used to describe a wireless router that acts as mobile Wi-Fi hotspot.

A MiFi device can be connected to a cellular network (3G, 4G) and provide internet access for up to ten devices.

The coverage of MiFi router is limited and only suitable to connect devices close by (in the same room).

MiFi routers embed a battery backup quite useful to stay connected during power outages.

According to our market research, only Ooredoo is selling MiFi routers in Myanmar. However, this does not prevent you from buying a generic device and plug in your MPT or Telenor SIM inside. This works just fine.

Be carefull if you buy a MiFi device from Ooredoo, there is a high chance the device will be simlocked and only accept Ooredoo SIM.

These are the devices currently available in the market:
