Press Release: GigSky Service on Apple SIM – Now 140 Countries
Here was a 9 to 5 Mac review from our Press release announcing the service had expanded to 140 countries on Apple SIM.
Last year GigSky announced that it would offer iPad cellular data plans in around 90 countries by leveraging Apple’s new carrier-agnostic Apple SIM now included in the device. Today the company is expanding availability of those plans to 140+ countries, giving more iPad users the ability to purchase data plans through GigSky without going through a local carrier.
In its press release, GigSky shared a few of the notable additions including Ecuador, Argentina, Jamaica, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Isle of Man, and The Virgin Islands.
GigSky offers users a mix of short-term, no-contract data plans that they can purchase directly on the iPad and use with the Apple SIM now embedded in new iPad models from Apple. The plans are ideal for travellers that would otherwise have to buy a pricey roaming plan from their carrier to get a local SIM and plan once arriving to a destination. In the US and UK, for instance, the company offers plans starting at $15 USD for 100MB of data good for up to 3 days, and as much as 1GB of data for $50 USD good for up to 30 days.
You’ll be able to use the GigSky plans with 9.7-inch iPad Pro, 12.9-inch iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4 and iPad mini 3 using Apple SIM. Otherwise you’ll have to grab a GigSky SIM to use the company’s packages on other iOS devices.
