Hippocket and is there an Italy company offering the same?

Greeting tech travelers,
Many folks on this forum are fans of the French product, Hippocket.
Is there a preferred similar for mi-fi, wi-fi for ITALY?

The other concern I have and left on another string, is overcharges from US carriers upon return?
Here's what I've done before departing. I chatted with ATT and told them my plans. Here's what ATT instructed and sharing with the rest (for iPhone):
1. Go to settings and turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Yes, turn off and continue reading....
2. Turn off phone
3. Restart phone
4. Go to settings, and turn off cellular and make sure radio icon is off (grayed out)
5. Turn on wifi and bluetooth
6. Connect to wi-fi unit
7. ATT agent said to test, turn off phone again and restart and setting should remain in state.
And there should be no charges.

I exported the chat transcript for posterity should there be an issue.
Look forward to others' experiences and recommendations.
