Does anyone know of a company that provides a hotspot device that will work international? Any type of internet connection. Asia preferred.

I have used these from time to time. They are tied to your ISP (only work with an ISP).  So you need to ask a local ISP about hotspots for your area. They are not likely to work internationally as they are tied to the ISP.

In many parts of Asia, I would just purchase a local SIM card (comes with data).  A little advance planning, and you can pick one up either at the airport, or near wherever you're staying (good chance you will find something near where tourists go).  They're a fairly inexpensive way to get data connectivity.

(You'd need an unlocked phone for this)
