WakaNet MiFi vs the Competition

When it comes to portable wifi gadgets options in Uganda.

Both devices pack the same specs in terms of the maximum number of users(10 devices) that can be connected to the WiFi hotspot at once.

The decision to choose the best option usually boils down to how well each ISP performs within your area. But if you are a cost-sensitive customer and are always looking for a good deal, MTN Wakanet seems like a good option as it packs everything you need at a cheaper fee.
