Here a review on the GigSky Service using GigSky Data SIM
Source: By Get Connectedon in
This review was featured on the Blog “Too Many Adapter” where GigSky came out on top for an International SIM card comparison. Read the original review here.
GigSky, just like KeepGo, focuses on data only – no voice calls or messages. Packages are available from 50MB to 1GB.
The service is available for users of all devices, but with a catch: iPad users who own an Apple SIM have more leeway in where they can use GigSky.
How many countries does it work in? 140 for iPad SIM Apple users, 90 for iPhone/Android/Windows users as of June 2016.
Data plans: prices vary slightly depending on the country of residence, and the destination.
For US nationals, prices start from $15 for 100MB to use in three days, to $50 for 1GB to use in a month in most countries. For residents of the Eurozone, prices for the same services range from 15€ to 50€. For UK residents, it’s £12-40.
As with KnowRoaming, you buy the SIM with a base plan from Amazon, then add the extra data packages as needed. Note there are some restrictions in the amount of data available in certain destinations, so double-check for your intended destination.
Outgoing calls: same as KeepGo, no voice plans. Users can call through any VoIP service, including Skype, FaceTime, Viber, etc.
Extras: GigSky offers a corporate plan, which allows companies to maintain several accounts and keep track of data allowance and usage.
So, Which International SIM Card Should You Buy?
In a nutshell: GigSky. Most travelers would benefit from having access to mobile data on the road. It allows you to check e-mail, text via a messaging app or iMessages, and upload pretty sunsets to Instagram from almost 100 countries.
Should you need to make a call, VoIP services like Skype and Viber work fine with GigSky.
