Unlimited Data When Traveling to Israel

If you travel to Israel or elsewhere overseas and require truly unlimited data to stay connected, you have several alternatives to consider. You can use your local mobile service provider, but in all likelihood, the service will be slower abroad, will have a data cap, and your mobile provider may charge you high roaming rates for data use outside of the USA. However, there’s no need to let this discourage you from checking your emails or streaming content while on your Israel trip or international travels, because an affordable alternative exists in the form of using a pocket WiFi router and an Israeli SIM card.

What is a Pocket WiFi Router?

Pocket Wifi Unlimited Data in IsraelA pocket WiFi router is a small portable device (usually about the size of a credit card, and as thick as a smartphone) that creates a “WiFi hotspot” so that you can connect wireless-enabled devices to the internet. Some people often refer to it as a MiFi or portable hotspot.

How many devices can be connected simultaneously to the pocket WiFi?

Hand holding smartphone with wifi connection in internet cafe-nes mobile

When considering a portable wireless router, you will want to evaluate the number of wireless devices you plan to have it connected to simultaneously and be sure that the router you choose will be sufficient for these needs. Most devices allow for 5-10 connections at once. We don’t recommend using more than 5 at once, as more users sharing the bandwidth reduces the data speed for each user. Be sure to keep your data secure with a pocket WiFi network password or key, so that strangers will not be able to use it. All the NES Mobile pocket WiFi devices come with a WiFi key password protection.

What’s the Pocket WiFi Speed? Is it Fast 4G LTE Pocket WiFi or Slow 2G?

The two most important factors that will determine your data speed are the network provider’s service and the pocket WiFi device capabilities. As 4G LTE is becoming more readily available throughout Israel and the rest of the world, you will want to be sure that your pocket WiFi router will support 3G and 4G LTE data SIM cards. Many USA providers state that one can use their data plans abroad. However, some providers only offer 3G or 2G speeds and have a data cap of just a few GB. The NES Mobile pocket WiFi service offers truly UNLIMITED high-speed data in Israel (we had some customers use up as much as 80 GB in one month…).

How to Get Unlimited Data When Traveling to Israel?

If you don’t come to Israel more than once a year, you’re better off renting the pocket WiFi device from NES Mobile that already comes with an unlimited Israeli Data SIM all set for your Israel travel needs, and can be delivered for free in the USA prior to your departure.
el-aviv-yafo-israel-panoramic-view-of-old-yafo-and-ancient-port-euo-nes-mobileIf you’re traveling to other locations, an international Data SIM card is a can be purchased prior to embarking on your overseas journey and be used in mobile devices, including pocket WiFi routers, while traveling. The rate you
will pay for data use will depend on the rates for the country you are traveling in, but will almost always be cheaper than using the service provider you use in your home country.

Another consideration when choosing an international SIM card is the process for adding more data should you run out and, on a related note, how long your data will be available if you happen not to use it all on your trip. This consideration is especially important if you plan to continue traveling overseas in the future. If you are going to be traveling to more than one country, you will find an international SIM card especially handy because you will not need to change the card as you cross borders and you will be able to use the phone number regardless of where you are in the world.

 Should I Buy or Rent a pocket WiFi?

There are several types of pocket WiFi routers available and the features you will want or need will be dependent upon your individual situation. The first thing you will want to consider is whether you wish to buy or rent a pocket WiFi router for use while traveling to Israel or to other destinations.  If you don’t travel that often, you’re better off renting the pocket WiFi device that already comes with an Israeli Data SIM and is all set for your needs. However, if you travel frequently to several countries, you may want to buy one, and use it with an international SIM card when traveling to other countries. If you wish to buy a pocket WiFi device, be sure to check whether or not the device is “locked” by a wireless service provider. If it is in fact locked, you will not be able to use an alternative SIM card until the device is unlocked by the service provider. Once you are sure that your WiFi router is unlocked, you will be able to use it with an international SIM card.

One Common Pocket WiFi Weakness – Battery Life

Another important factor to consider when acquiring a portable WiFi router is battery life, especially if you are going to be using it a lot in places where you may not be able to find an outlet to charge it. Most pocket WiFi devices hold a charge of 2-5 hours. Therefore, it is recommended to have a car charger and a wall plug readily available. If you plan to be off the beaten path without accessibility to a car charger or a wall plug, you should consider getting a power bank as a backup.

Birthright Israel

Right now you are probably all excited about the 10 day Birthright Israel trip you are going to take. You are looking forward to a trip which will take you on a journey into both Jewish history and into the modern Jewish state. Birthright Israel provides travelers with Israeli peers to give you a genuine Israeli experience. Over the 10 days, you will see key landmarks of national, archaeological and historical significance that still, after many millennia, shape Jewish life. As a traveler of Jewish origin, you’ll get to explore Israel’s varied landscapes, as well as the opportunity to explore Israel’s arts, culture, science, environmental initiatives and technology. The trip will enable you to further explore the core values that have been part of Judaism throughout the ages.

Your Birthright Israel Trip

The journey is designed to make the traveler part of an ongoing continuum of Judaism among overseas-born and Israeli young adults. During the journey, you will be able to associate the Jewish past, the Jewish present and the Jewish future. Birthright Israel, in an educational format, wants to strengthen Jewish identity and Jewish communities by showing young Jewish adults from around the world what it means to be a Jew living in Israel.JERUSALEM ISRAEL, DamascusGate, BirthrightIsrael, Nes mobile

The object of the 10-day trip is to help motivate young people to explore their Jewish identity, garner their continued support for Israel and hopefully, to initiate some long-lasting connections with Israelis that can be continued after they return home. Birthright Israel is also involved in promoting active roles in Jewish organizations and follow-up activities for younger Jewish people worldwide. Currently, thanks to Birthright Israel, over half a million young Jews have participated in the exploratory trip of their homeland for a life-changing experience.

After travelers return home to North America, they are introduced to other alumni and young leaders’ campaigns in their local areas and encouraged to participate further in exploring their connection to Israel and the Jewish people. They particularly are encouraged to take part in learning experiences, volunteering and other community-based organizations. They are also encouraged to make further trips back to Israel to strengthen their bond with people they met in Israel and with the Jewish state.

Israel Phone for Your Birthright Israel Trip

One important thing that most travelers will need to prepare for their 10-day trip is to acquire some way that they can keep in contact with their families back home, without spending a fortune. Most people, in seeking a low-cost solution, would probably think to either buy a new phone with a new SIM card on arrival in the country they will be traveling to, or if your phone is already unlocked and has multiple sim card slots you might think of buying another SIM card on arrival for local use – but there is a better and easier way!israel 4G SIM - Birthright Israel - NES Mobile

For your Birthright Israel trip, it would probably be best to buy one of the short term NES Mobile Israeli SIM card packages. NES Mobile has two very good plans which are SIM card only, but of course you can add a phone if you want. These are billed on a daily basis. The base plan you are looking at will cost $6.50 per day plus VAT. The beauty of these Israeli 4G SIM cards is they also allow you to call landlines and mobiles not only in Israel but in the US and Canada.

WiFi in Israel

Open unlimited WiFi in Israel is one of those little extravagances that can make touring more comfortable. Sadly, some hackers will attempt to utilize public WiFi to prey upon unsuspecting users. Here are some tips on what to pay special attention to when utilizing open WiFi.

Password Protected Pocket WiFi in Israel with TOTALLY UNLIMITED Data (for 5 simultaneous users)

NES Mobile’s Pocket WiFi Hotspot offers 3G/4G unlimited data services, that can connect up to 5 users at any given time. Unlike other providers that slow down the connection after a few Gigs, WiFi in Israel-NES MobileNES Mobile’s pocket WiFi in Israel offers a secure password protected device with truly unlimited data. Some customers actually used over 50 GB without experiencing any slowdown. For more info see: Students and other long-term Pocket WiFi Rentals, or the Tourists short-term plans Pocket WiFi Rentals.

Using an Israeli SIM as a Hotspot

Some people choose to use their Israeli SIM in their phone and then use it as a hotspot. It’s an excellent option for those who just need to use their cell phonesisrael-sim for Wifi in Israel, or possibly do some work in their hotel room later in the day.

If you’re planning on using your cell as a hotspot keep in mind:

  • Cell providers in Israel “throttle” the data (regulate and reduce the internet speed). Depending on the cell provider, web speed after utilization of a few GB will, most likely, dramatically, slow down.
  • If you’re using your cell phone as a hotspot, please note it will severely consume your battery, so be sure to stay connected to a power source while using your phone as a hotspot.

Beware of Using Open Free WiFi in Israel (or Anywhere Else for that Matter)

Free open WiFi permits users to interface with a hotspot which is open and free for all to utilize. Such open systems are frequently found in hotel lobbies, coffeehouses and some tour buses. Hacking into another device on an open free WiFi system is not that straightforward, but it’s pretty easy for a hacker to intercept your data if the right precautions are not taken. See some of the recommendations on how to better protect your device on public WiFi.

So Am I Protected if the Open Free WiFi Network is Password Protected?

NO… Utilizing a secret key on an open WiFi system will keep individuals who don’t have a network password from logging in, and it does mitigate the threat. Nonetheless, that doesn’t mean you’re shielded from other people who are associated with the same system and have the skill to hack into your device.

In conclusion:

  • Using an Israeli SIM for data is sufficient for those who are not heavy data users.
  • If you’re an above-average user of data, or you are coming on a trip with a few people, rent a mobile hotspot that is password protected and can work with 5 users simultaneously.
  • Avoid open WiFi networks.

World SIM Card

Do you travel a lot? Business trips? Much deserved personal vacations? Or just plain old wanderlust? We cannot survive without our phones. It’s impossible. It’s arguably one of the most essential items of our daily lives, and there is no alternate. The great thing about cell phones is that they can generally be used worldwide as long as you have cellular reception and/or access to WiFi. But that’s not always possible, or even if there is reception, it may be cost prohibitive. What do you do then? You need a world SIM card that travels with you, one that is as easy to use as adjusting the time on your watch. If you have a world SIM card that travels with you, it automatically works around the world and connects to the local cellular network.

4G LTE Network in Israel

Deployment of the 4G LTE network in Israel was launched only a year ago, but according to data just released from OpenSignal, Israel is, in fact, one of the world leaders in providing high speed LTE.

How Fast is the 4G LTE Network in Israel?

According to the OpenSignal study, Israel is ranked 4th when it comes to browsing speeds and the average download speed of LTE in Israel, stands at 28 Mbps (megabytes per second). This makes the surfing speed in Israel one of the world’s highest. That being said, since the 4G LTE network in Israel is currently being deployed around the country, only about half of Israel has LTE coverage. For example, Cellcom‘s 4G LTE network in Israel, used by NES Mobile covers about 44% of the network with 4G LTE, while the rest of the network is still 3G.

Is 3G in Israel Faster than 4G in Other Places?

Many NES Mobile customers told us that they found Israel’s 3G speed actually faster than some European countries’ 4G networks. We never truly investigated that, but there is a possible technical explanation why some may feel that it is so.

Even rural areas in Israel can get good mobile coverage. 4G LTE Network in Israel

Even rural areas in Israel can get good mobile coverage. 4G LTE Network in Israel

Mobile networks have parameters and can only support a certain number of users or a certain amount of bandwidth at any given time. Mobile network operators attempt to handle excess demand by putting up additional cell towers. Each mobile operator has their own cost-benefit analysis to determine their subscriber demand to cell tower ratio differently.  The higher subscriber to cell tower ratio, the slower the speed and reception. The lower subscriber to cell tower ratio, the faster the speed and the reception is better. This means that in areas with a large number of mobile phone users with relatively few cell towers, it’s a fairly safe assumption that the majority of users accessing 4G networks with a high subscriber/tower ratio may actually get a slower speed than a well-covered area in Israel that may only have 3G, but with a low subscriber/tower ratio.

As a matter of fact, a customer can be connected to their mobile carrier’s 4G network with full 5 Bars of signal strength, but downloading can be as slow as molasses. Which could explain why some customers found Israel’s 3G speed actually faster than other countries’ 4G.

What Data Speed Will I Actually Get in Israel?

As Israelis often answer, it depends…

According to open signal the average 4G LTE speed is 28 Mbps. Our internal testing on Cellcom’s network (which NES Mobile uses for its Israel 4G SIM card service) showed an average speed of about 23 Mbps on 4G, and 8 Mbps on 3G. Our internal testing is by no means scientific, but more of an internal poll and results can vary based on location and other factors.

Tu BiShvat in Israel

On January 24-25, 2016, we will celebrate Tu BiShvat (In Hebrew: ט״ו בשבט‎), a Jewish holiday occurring on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shevat. It is also called “Rosh HaShanah La’Ilanot” (Hebrew: ראש השנה לאילנות‎), literally “The New Year of the Trees.” In contemporary Israel, the day is celebrated from both a religious and ecological perspective.  Trees are planted to develop the land, and the holiday is celebrated religiously with a Tu BiShvat seder where local fruits are eaten.

Modern History of Tu BiShvat in Israel

The custom of planting trees on Tu BiShvat in modern times dates back to the end of the 19th century. Rabbi Ze’ev Yavetz, a scholar and historian, immigrated to Israel in 1887 and managed the local school in Zichron Yaakov. In 1890, on Tu BiShvat, Rabbi Ze’ev Yavetz led his students to plant trees, and the tradition to plant trees on this day was born. The Teachers’ Union and the JNF formalized this practice in 1908, and gave the day an educational focus on developing the land of Israel and improving the landscape.

Planting Trees in Israel on Tu Bishvat

Israel is the only country in the world to have a net gain of trees in the last 100 years, because of proactive tree planting. Tree planting reverses desertification, not only making the desert greener, but also adding nutrients that nourish the soil, transforming the desert to habitable land.

Israeli and Tourists Visiting in Israel – can join various special activities and plant a tree with the JNF.

Tu Bishvat Seder

In the 16th century, the Kabbalists of Tzfat (Safed) gathered for a Tu BiShvat Seder celebrated by eating fruit, particularly from the species that are singled out by the Torah in its praise of the bounty of the Holy Land of Israel, including grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates. On Tu BiShvat we’re meant to evoke the feeling that, “man is a tree of Tu Bishvat - mix of dried fruits - NES Mobile

Live Sport Streaming in Israel

Jaffa Street in Jerusalem

Jaffa Street in Jerusalem

Many students spending a year in Israel like to keep up with their favorite NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL or college sports teams and view live sport streaming in Israel. Some watch live sports at one of the restaurants or bars on Jaffa Street in Jerusalem, although many choose to watch the games alone or with friends in the comfort of their dorm or hotel room. With the right technology, the internet is their best answer for watching the latest American sports games in Israel – live.

Watching Game with Live Sport Streaming in Israel

What Do I Need in Order to Watch a Live Sport Streaming in Israel?

There are several options one can choose from order to view live stream sports games in Israel. However, there are three basic requirements needed: Internet, Device, and an online venue.

  1. Unlimited High Speed Internet Service in Israel

    NES Mobile Pocket WiFi Mobile Hotspot - Unlimited Internet -MiFi

    NES Mobile Pocket WiFi Mobile Hotspot – Unlimited Internet in Israel

The basic requirement is a reliable, unlimited  high-speed internet service in Israel. The ideal situation is to have a good DSL connection, but most students do not have access to unlimited DSL internet connections in their dorm rooms and they resort to using their mobile device data package for internet. That being said, effectively all of Israel’s cell providers “throttle” (slow down the speed of the download), which interferes with watching a live broadcast. The internet speed after usage of 3-5 GB, is clearly not enough to watch games in addition to the regular data usage. (Some providers do offer packages up to 5 GB or 10 GB of data, which may be enough for some.) NES Mobile offers students and other long-term renters a pocket Wi-Fi device with totally unlimited data.

“We usually see a major surge in data consumption on Sunday nights, carrying over to early Monday morning when we opt to watch NFL games”, says Avigdor Factor, co-founder of NES Mobile.

“During the NBA playoffs, we even had customers whose monthly data consumption was as high as 50 GB, due to the intensity and frequency of the games.”

NES Mobile also offers plans for those who are visiting Israel on a short-term basis, for a few days or weeks.

  1. Device – A PC, Mac, Smartphone or Tablet

israel-pocket-wifiWhether you have a laptop in your dorm room, or a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet, (most students in Israel have at least one of these devices), with access to DSL, games can be watched on virtually any device.

  1. Online Site and Venues to Watch Games

Some games are available online for all to watch and enjoy. However, often, due to broadcasting regulations, networks are restricted and are only allowed to show sports content on the internet in the United States and US Territories.

There are a few solutions, which are usually divided into two categories: Viewers who pay for subscription services or solutions for viewers who opt to watch for free. NOTE: We’re only covering the technology aspects and will not address the legal/regulatory issue which is complex and varies greatly depending on content and country.

a. Using a Slingbox in Israel

Slingbox allows you to view cable TV (from the USA) on any device. A Slingbox needs to be located with someone you know who has a residence in the US with a local cable subscription. With a Slingbox, you can watch all the channels the person who has the Slingbox has access to – from anywhere in the world. This applies not only to watching live football games for free, but to any other show or channel your host has access to.

b. A Paid Subscription to Sports LeaguesFootball online live streaming- n Israel

Most websites of major US sports leagues offer a live streaming portal to anyone who wishes to watch online. Prices vary based on your country location, as well as the sport.Special packages are often introduced during the playoffs.

c. Virtual Private Networks (VPN) and Proxies

Due to broadcasting regulations, some network’s sites are restricted and only allow access to sports content via the internet if you are in the United States and US Territories. They can restrict the content by blocking services for viewers with a foreign IP address. VPN services allow you to obtain an American IP address by routing your connection via an American VPN server. So even from outside the USA you may be able to watch USA-based TV streaming websites in Israel. The technology is similar to virtual private networks that employees often use for remote access to their office computer networks.

The Cost of Free WiFi in Israel

Whether you visit Israel or other countries, people on vacation are always trying to get free WiFi. Unfortunately, some crooks will try to use it to their advantage and use the open public wireless networks to steal information from unsuspecting users. This global trend is affecting unsuspecting surfers across the world.

Free WiFi Open Networks

Free open WiFi allows users to connect to a hotspot which is open and free for all to use. Such open networks are often found in hotels, coffee shops and many other locations. Hacking into another computer on an open free WiFi network is not that easy. In all likelihood, the free wireless router is not under the control of someone with malicious intent and hacking expertise to manipulate it. Most wireless routers have a firewall, as well as password protection to limit those who can access it.

So Am I Protected if the Open Free WiFi Network is Password Protected?

Actually no… Using a password on an open free WiFi network will prevent those who do not have a password from accessing the network and does mitigate the risks. However, that doesn’t mean you’re protected from others who are connected to the same network and have the expertise to hack into your computer. With the right skills and know-how, it is remarkably easy to steal someone’s username and password, or see what they’re doing, just by being on the same network.

The Solutions:

Avoid Open WiFi Networks – Rent a MiFi

NES Mobile MiFi - Unlimited Internet Pocket Wifi

NES Mobile MiFi – Unlimited Internet Pocket Wifi

It’s actually easier than is sounds. There are other solutions out there one can use as an alternative. If you’re visiting Israel, NES Mobile’s MiFi device (AKA pocket WiFi) is a great alternative. The MiFi can provide unlimited and protected WiFi and data reception throughout Israel. If you are visiting friends and family, you can use their home or office network to stay connected. You can also simply rent a NES Mobile SIM cards and use your phone as a hot spot.

Visit Only Encrypted HTTPS Sites

If you’re still confined to using only an open free WiFi network, you can try to make use of HTTPS on an encrypted HTTP as much as possible. Using HTTPS encrypts the data traffic and keep it away from cyber offenders. Also be sure to enable SSL before using it for certain applications that require connection to the internet, such as Outlook. (If you didn’t understand this last paragraph, you are not alone… But you can ask any “techie” and they will explain…)

Enable Firewall and Restrict Sharing

Most laptops come with basic firewalls. Simply go into the settings to ensure that the firewall is indeed enabled and working. You may have settings enabling you to share files, printers or even allow remote logins from other computers on your home or office network. When you’re on a public open WiFi be sure to turn these sharing settings off to prevent sharing with unwanted strangers.
