How does Transatel’s DataSIM card work?
Simply inserted into any laptop or tablet equipped with a SIM slot, the prepaid Data SIM card is delivered to your address before departure and offers permanent cellular connectivity in over 40 countries, at local prices2.
For travelers who do not own a laptop or tablet with a slot for a SIM card, Transatel offers the Wi-Fi hotspot as an alternative. Ordered and delivered already preconfigured with the SIM card, the hotspot shares internet access between up to ten separate devices simultaneously. This is an ideal solution for trips with family, friends, or colleagues, whether to consult emails, surf the web, use mobile apps for navigation, stream videos, stay connected via social media, and instantly send home– or to the office– videos and photographs.
‘Desperately seeking Wi-Fi’ is a tribulation of the past
In a world where staying connected is a necessity, the Transatel DataSIM card offers peace of mind. Travelers install their SIM card once and continue to benefit from a secure and private cellular connection wherever their travels take them. The hassle of entering personal details, following circuitous routes to log in, or repeatedly producing a credit card to pay for temporary Wi-Fi access is over. And no longer is one’s daily route influenced by proximity to a good source of Wi-Fi.
Travelers can visit the retail website to recharge their data SIM card. They can add credit per megabyte or choose from a selection of data bundles. The pricing for either option is on par with local rates for data, thus eliminating costly roaming charges.
