We have a how-to-guide for travelers who need reliable Internet access in all countries they visit: the concept is based on prepaid SIM cards. If you are traveling, but don’t want to make the effort to get a new SIM card in each country you visit, a gadget can manage all that for you, and provide Internet access at a reasonable fixed price.
When traveling overseas, you will need Internet access – sooner or later. If you are working and traveling as a digital nomad, you will need it the moment you arrive in a new country, but if you are on holiday, perhaps you settle in first. No problem, many people think, I’ll use the hotel Wi-Fi, free access at McDonalds, or Wi-Fi at a nearby café. Sure, if you know what you are doing, because recent news reports showed us that multiple hotel Wi-Fi networks in Europe and Middle East were infiltrated so that hackers could collect guests’ banking and other passwords.
