The Glo­calMe U2 is an Indiegogo-funded project that of­fers a mo­bile Wi-Fi router un­like oth­ers on the mar­ket. It’s best suited to fre­quent trav­ellers who want to quickly and cheaply get on­line any­where in the world, but it’s a use­ful de­vice for back home too, es­pe­cially for busi­ness users who are tired of deal­ing with flaky in­ter­net con­nec­tions while com­mut­ing and even in the var­i­ous board­rooms they visit.

With em­bed­ded en­cryp­tion the router also presents a safer method of get­ting on­line than con­nect­ing to po­ten­tially vul­ner­a­ble public Wi-Fi hotspots. It’s able to work as a stan­dard Mi-Fi de­vice, shar­ing the data con­nec­tion of a mo­bile SIM (the net­work-un­locked U2 ac­cepts both full-size and Mi­cro-SIMs) with up to five de­vices, but what’s more in­ter­est­ing about this is its cloudSIM func­tion­al­ity. You don’t need to in­sert a lo­cal SIM in this mo­bile router in or­der to get on­line in over 100 coun­tries – you sim­ply put some PAYG credit on it or buy a data pack and away you go.

Glo­calMe works with mul­ti­ple net­work op­er­a­tors, in­clud­ing AT&T, Sprint, Ver­i­zon, Orange, China Mo­bile, Voda­fone, T-Mo­bile, O2, China Tele­com and China Uni­com,
