Internet connectivity is one of the most vital assists a business has. Without it, many businesses cannot function fully or at maximum efficiency.

Even the shortest projects often require an internet connection—and it is these short projects where a fixed line broadband connection is not suitable.

Can you hire WiFi?

Yes you can hire WiFi. There are solutions that allow you to hire WiFi on a short-term or temporary basis. These solutions often use the 4G network, rather than a fixed line broadband connection—which makes them ideal for hiring short-term.

For example, our temporary WiFi solution uses the UK’s 4G network to provide reliable connectivity on a temporary basis anywhere in the UK.

How does hired WiFi work?

Normal business WiFi is provided using a fixed line. This means that there is a physical line going to a building, which carries your data connection. Fixed lines require a physical line installed at the location, and are often tie you into 12 or 24 month contracts; making them unsuitable for short term, temporary or remote projects.

This is where the 4G network can come into play. Our 4G WiFi hire solution uses two simple pieces of equipment to provide strong WiFi to a number of devices such as computers, smartphones, tablets and even printers.

Why would you need to hire WiFi?

You may be asking yourself, who would need to hire WiFi? Well, that’s a good question—and one with many answers. Below are some of the most common uses of our temporary 4G WiFi hire solution:


Many construction companies working from portable cabins require WiFi to do their daily job. These portable cabins often do not have a fixed line in place, and so they need something that provides them with internet connectivity while they work.

If you’re hosting an event, 4G WiFi hire can be a lifesaving solution.
