4g wifi

Answered
Hi have just switched over from the 3G USB stick to the new 4g pocket wifi , it works fine apart from the constant disconnecting , but the real issue for me is the chewing up of my data, im on a 15g monthly plan and that's always been plenty for me, but now within 3 weeks I've hit my cap, why is this happening? Can other users in your area access your wifi.. Any info would be appreciated thanks.

If the device doesn't have a password, then yes.

 

It's also likely that you are able to view content faster, and this is why your limit is being used up (ie: your just using more then you thought). I've seen it happen personally in that regard.

Additionally, ensure you are turning your 'pocket wifi' device off when not in use. This helps minimise usage and increases the life of the device itself.

Re: 4g wifi

and while you are at it, I also find the Testra 4G wifi pocket "dongle" lovely when using but I have to recharge it every time I go to use it again, because, I think I am not successfully turning it off.There is no information in the PDF of instructions. Can anyone advise?

Hi,

 

To turn off the device you should just require to hold down the power button for a few seconds to power it off.
