May 9, 2019 – Almost four years after starting a young startup offering mobile WiFi in Croatia is still going strong, despite increased international competition. The Roamfree Ninja story continues.
A few years ago, while searching the web, I came across a new solution for mobile WiFi in Croatia. A new startup company called Roamfree Ninja was offering unlimited 3G WiFi, with a very generous data package of 75 GB a week, with a download speed of 21.5 MBPS. I wrote a little article about them, and it turned out that I was the first to ever write about them, which led to a meeting and a trial use of their device.
My life was transformed! As a blogger, getting online is as important as oxygen, and the more I was travelling all over Croatia after the launch of TCN, the more I needed connectivity away from home. Mobile phone data packages were not what they are today just a few years ago, and the chance to to be online on trains and buses and get some work done was revolutionary.
One of the things that impressed me back then when I met the Ninja team was their attitude to customer service. They were very proud of their 2-minute average response time (and I found out that it was indeed the case when I contacted them), and it would seem from the reviews that they have managed to keep that high quality of service over the years – customer service features large in the predominantly 5-star reviews. One of my favourite stories was told by Total Croatia Sailing editor Tash Pericic, when Roamfree Ninja saved the day of her skipper husband’s boat when the boat’s WiFi failed with guests on board.
We have all changed since that first contact back in 2015. And none more so than Roamfree Ninja. Not only a sleek new design for the device itself (see how it looks when delivered to your address, hotel, yacht in Croatia), but a serious upgrade in performance as well.
With the increasing competition, I had expected Ninja to have fallen behind somewhat in what they offer, apart from that excellent customer service, but I was surprised to learn that they still offer the best packages, with the most comprehensive data package. At the best price. With free delivery. And up to 14 people able to access one device at the same time.
From 3G download speed of up to 21.5 MBPS in 2015, to 4G at up to 150 MBPS in 2019.
From 2.5 upload speed in 2015 to up to 70-80 MBPS in 2019.
I had a good browse through the web to see what the closest alternatives were, but I could find nobody with such a generous data package of 75 GB per week, especially for the price. And even if you managed to exceed that gigantic limit, the unlimited WiFi continues, albeit at a reduced speed.
It seems that this little Croatian startup has a very right future through season 2019. To learn more about Roamfree Ninja and its packages, visit the official website.
Delivery is free inside Croatia and comes with a pre-paid envelope to return the device.
