It was exceptionally easy to use GigSky in India
It was exceptionally easy to use GigSky while in India. Interestingly, while working deep within the slums, I was the only person with Internet access. When you’re ‘deep’ in the slum communities, there are layers and layers of make-shift construction that makes access virtually impossible. This includes people with local SIMs. Trust me, being burrowed like that is not easy.
Relying on Wi-Fi can be tricky in India
At times, one could encounter volatility – of all varieties. Being able to reach outside contacts is a must – for safety, security and a relative sense of well-being. Also, the Wi-Fi where I was staying, at the university – Tata Institute of Social Sciences, was spotty and decidedly unreliable.
For people who travel a lot for work, some things just can’t be left to chance
Over the course of a month in Mumbai, I had several key deliverables that had to be submitted on time. I would not have been able to meet those strict deadlines without GigSky mobile data service. For people who travel a lot, there are things that just can’t be left to chance, regardless of where you might be located. Given my past two most recent outings with GigSky (the other was in Jamaica -GigSky service was great there!) I can safely say there is no way I’ll leave internet access up to another source. It’s too important to have control over meeting deadlines and staying in touch with my various other contacts and projects while away.
For “Must-Have Internet” Situations- Use GigSky
GigSky service has proved, time and time again, it’s always there exactly when it’s needed – no matter where I might be sitting when I find myself in a “must-have internet” situation. I won’t leave the country without it. I’m a fan for life. GigSky is synonymous with comfort – and the ability to communicate with confidence from any corner of the world.
