Pocket wifi recommendation

Me and my husband will be arriving on the 19/10 and will spend 4nights in Busan and 5 nights in Seoul but due to our work back home we would like to be connected to the internet the entire time, what a holiday right!!! We would like to pick up pocket wifi from Incheon, any recommendation on which company we could do that?

Can we just contact them upon arrival or should we pre book before flying to Incheon?

thank u

-check if you are renting the airport is the same airport you are arriving and departing with

-when your arrival /departure time on getting/returning the wifi meets the schedule when the office is still open

-check with your accommodation if they offer pocket (egg) wifi

I used SK and had a good experience with them. I think you get some discounts when makin an advance reservation.

I used Pocket Wifi Korea a while ago and they were great, I pre-booked it and met them in Incheon to pick it up - although when I hired it, I met them in a random seating area and they didn't speak any english, though I just showed them the confirmation email and it was all fine.

KT and SKT are the two largest companies in Korea. They both offer reservations online for a device. If you want to reserve one to be sure you get one, go ahead. There's no cost for a reservation.

They offer these directly. Any other "cheaper" companies are still using their network but typically offer inferior customer service or lower quality access to the network.

I do not understand the error message.

But i have encountered such online problem and it was because the particular timeslot was full.

oh. btw no need to lose sleep over this. I find the staff manning the KTX counters very professional, albeit most are not proficient in English. If you have your confirmation details, their booking is good. You will surely get your tickets at the counter.
