International SIM card

by PHeymont »

Those are actually fairly stiff rates, compared with data SIMs from local carriers. I've picked some samples below; other carriers in the same country will likely be similar. In any case, 50€ will buy you several months, not one month!

For example,

Orange (in Spain) offers 1Gb/mo for 8.95€ with its "Ballena" SIM (http://movil.orange.es/tarifas/tarjeta/ballena/)

Vodafone (Portugal) offers 1Gb/mo for 10.99€ or 2Gb for 14.99€ (http://www.vodafone.pt/main/particulares/internet-movel/tarifarios/internet-no-telemovel.html)

Vodafone (Germany) has 1Gb/mo for 14.99€ (http://www.vodafone.de/privat/callya-prepaid-karte/prepaid-internet-websessions.html)

One other note: If you are a U.S. T-Mobile subscriber on a "Simple Choice" plan, you have unlimited roaming data outside the U.S. in 120 countries. It's generally 3G, not 4G, but it sure simplified our recent travels!

Hello everybody!
I'd like to share with you an experience about mobile access to internet. Before my last trip to Europe (Germany, Spain, Portugal etc) I used to buy local SIM cards or use free WiFi spots in McDonalds, Starbucks and other places. Not really comfy and wastes some time. So I ordered MTX Connect SIN card and was so cool! They have 3 pricing options: 0.1 euro per Mb, 10 euro per day unlimited, 50 euro per month (for 1 Gb). I used the second option when I had to work and had to spend a lot of time on internet, and the first one, when I needed to check e-mail or google maps or posted smth to Instagram. So it's a good decision for travelling to Europe. Check here: mtxc.eu

Hello, thanks for your opinion and the information. And I can agree with you, it's more cheaper to use local SIM cards. But sometimes it's more comfy to buy only one SIM card and don't waste time searching for a new one  at each plaec, for example in eurotrip when you visit every country for a couple of days.
Spending more time in one country you should definitely buy a local SIM card.
