Mifi

MiFis or MiFi dongles are compact, wireless devices that enable multiple users to share a single mobile broadband connection while they are on the go. MiFis work by creating a localised signal, similar to the wireless routers used by home broadband providers. For this reason, some people refer to the technology that MiFis use as wireless mobile broadband. As with mobile broadband dongles, MiFis are are offered on monthly or yearly contracts, or pay-as-you-go deals.

NOTE:  UWM IT does not have any Mifis available for use by the campus community.
