Data Happens In Business

No matter what, you are probably going to need data access when traveling. So what’s the best option for the domestic or international traveler? Is it signing on that expensive data plan for a two year commitment so you can get the USB modem for free? What if you don’t need it every day, week or month even? Why not rent your solution?

Cellhire is saving businesses money every day and with their simple processing through the corporate customer’s dedicated web site and no-hassle return, your time is saved as well. Before you activate your international data roaming at crazy fees or take that 3rd trip in the US this year, look at the options and see how much you could be saving.

Cellhire has rolled out new programs for USB Modem connections designed to save businesses time and money. Need to carry your own hotspot for your team with a MiFi? They have it for just a few bucks more.

Purchase only what you need when you need it, with prepaid data. Traveling in the USA, Cellhire offers international data bundles starting at $39. European data bundles are now available as well for France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK at just $29 per bundle.
