Our holiday to Europe last year, with many connected devices present, was spoilt somewhat by lack of internets, firstly caused by Three UK failing to unlock my device in the promised timeframe, secondly by the hunting of SIMs that could give data (then replacing them!) and thirdly by public wifi (eg German McDonalds) not allowing foreign devices. Yes, I couldn’t believe that either. But twas true. So this year, I’m starting the solution hunt early.
First knock was on the twitter door of @BenSmithUK of WirelessWorker.net – here’s our convo with TruPhone and MaxRoam getting mentions.
Best recommendations? Have an unlocked device for abroad. Buy SIMs before leaving.
