I wrote about the Wingle couple of days back. It is a small little thingy that can be used to convert any place in to a Hot Spot. So I decided to try it in my car. Here’s what you need to do to convert your car in to a mobile hot spot.
Hi, just moved in to a new city, Karachi that is! I was pretty disconnected for three days at least. The whole bunch of PTCL wireless devices advertised in a local daily caught my attention. What great timing I thought. So off I went to the local PTCL office in Karachi Saddar, after talking to the helpline. The helpline guy told me EVO Wingle which promises great speed, would cost Rs. 7500, with three months of paid connectivity. But alas, the customer care guy had another story to tell, he asked for Rs. 9000 for the same contraption due to some tax thing which I found hard to understand. The next stop was a local vendor aka PTCL franchisee. These guys sell Wingle at Rs. 2200 a piece with an additional Rs. 1500 for a months service (30 GB limit). Although there’s another plan which gives 75 GB of download data limit for Rs. 2,500 per month.
