Long term leasing

Love it? Lease it.

If sending your PopUp WiFi unit home after a job is starting to make you feel a little sad, maybe it’s time to consider a longer-term arrangement.

With contracts available for 3, 6, 12 and 24-month leases, you’ll save money, time and always have the high-quality internet you need.

Keen to try before you rent? Easy. Just let us know you’d like to convert your casual rental to a lease by the last day of your ad hoc booking. We’ll credit the amount you’ve paid for your casual rental towards your first months’ lease invoice with our “Love it? Lease it” offer.

The NEW Express 5G. Not just a pretty case.

Meet the smartest managed internet solution available anywhere in the world. With multi-carrier 5G + 4G bonded technology & 24/7 intelligent live management, it delivers seamless internet that can handle anything you throw at it.

Streaming in 4K? Easy. Working from a moving vehicle? Yep. Producing at an event with 100k guests? The Express 5G outsmarts it all, with 4 modems, an ultra-fast Peplink router and high-gain antennas to grab all the megabits you need.

From our base in LA, right across the USA. It’s total 5Genius.

Rapid ROI

If you expect to need managed internet services for 11 or more event days per year, leasing a unit for 12 or 24 months is the best value in town when compared with our standard casual rental rates. 

Designed for our professional production partners’ benefit, leases start at around $250/week. With unlimited re-configurations & expert support, you could find a handy new revenue stream by on-selling your managed internet service to your clients

Never miss out

Events are back, baby! It’s great news for producers but it does come with the risk that we’ll be booked out of inventory – especially for those last-minute jobs.

Lease a PopUp WiFi unit and know you’ll always have a unit when you need it.

Imagine just grabbing your unit off the warehouse shelf at a moment’s notice and showing up on site with perfect internet performance – again.

Speed up set up

Once you’ve connected your production devices to your PopUp WiFi unit once, they’ll automatically connect again when you power up at future events. Forget showing up on-site to unpredictable networking conditions – a lease unit is always configured the same way so you don’t even need to find out the venue password. Even better, if you need help, you can speak to our dedicated team of networking engineers who know your unit inside-out any time, 24/7.
