Even since I started using KnowRoaming SIM, it has become the best option for travelling overseas. When I travelled to Zurich, Paris, New Delhi, Bangkok, Guangzhou and Tokyo, I used the opportunity to test the connection speed. For more information about KnowRoaming SIM’s, click here.

Growing global network
When I did my mini Around the World trip this time, I felt my cell phone always had internconnectivity, meaning as soon as the airplane lands, cell phone use is allowed, and I disable airplane mode, within a minute or so, KnowRoaming SIM finds the local network, and then I can start to do Instagram, Facebook while I am still deplaning. In the past, I had to get off the airplane first, try to find WIFI at the airport (some airports also require SMS authentication), or buy a local SIM Card in order to use the Internet.
Practically speaking, that is still one occasion where I couldn’t connect right away. In the New Delhi airport, somehow I just could connect; The airport WIFI needed SMS authentication, and for whatever reason, both of my SIMs couldn’t receive SMS as well. But after arriving at the hotel, I reset the KnowRoaming settings, and it worked once again. So, whether it was just a problem with the settings remains unknown.
In this trip, I purchased both the Global unlimited data 1/3 days options, according to the travel plan, because it is an unlimited data plan so that I could use the internet without any worries
KnowRoaming now offers three unlimited data plans. Along with those, there are also other options such as global 1GB Data – 15 days or Europe 1GB Data – 30 days. For more details, click here,

All cities have been testing LTE to spend of course, as nowadays we are in the 5G era. Also because of this, LTE is not a great deal anymore. However, at least there is no 3G, so not only using Instagram, Facebook or Google Maps is not an issue at all; even a video chat shouldn’t be an issue.
