WIFI outside Addis now

I’ll be traveling to rural Ethiopia for two weeks for work. I heard that the WiFi and 3G service have been disrupted outside Addis. Does anyone know if a mobile hotspot would work for internet if I bring one with me?

I'm in Mekele right now. There is no mobile internet. But the hotel WiFi mostly works.

My phone is registered and I could access mobile internet OK in Addis Ababa.

Do I have to register my phone if I just want to use the WiFi spots with my phone?

No need to register your phone if you want it only for WIFI and don’t want to use Sim Card...
