This is a post I’ve meant to write for sometime, and I’m happy to finally be able to write it. A question I get asked often is “what do you use for calls, texts, and data overseas” well I’ve learned the hard way, and now I know what to do without going broke. Thanks, Telstra :/
Previously I have just used my home sim which is with Telstra because It was simple and easy and the plan I have gives international data, calls, and texts. What I didn’t realize was how fast the cost of international data could rise… Now this wasn’t using it all day; this was an hour worth of browsing.
So after nearly having a heart attack I decided to investigate and find a plan or sim that wouldn’t make me go broke. And I decided to try a T-mobile pre-paid sim.
I decided to purchase an Unlimited T-mobile sim which includes the following:
- Unlimited talk, text, and data starting with up to 3GB of 4G LTE
- The freedom to buy a new device or bring your own
- Coverage on T-Mobile’s Nationwide 4G LTE network
- The ability to stream as much music as you want with Music Unlimited
- Great prices for bigger data appetites
I paid just over $100 for the sim, and I can happily say that I won’t ever be using Telstra overseas again. The data is LTE, so it’s lightning fast, and the coverage is absolutely fantastic!
I would recommend this sim to anyone from other countries, and if I were a U.S citizen I would switch to T-mobile (Don’t worry I tried but I need to be a citizen)
After spending time with the sim, I have been so impressed by how well it works, and I am a very satisfied customer.
