It's not clear. As far as I know, nothing has been ruled out or abolished, it's just that announced dates for vote/approval for new measures slip and nothing has happened yet. There were no further mandatory price cuts planned in the current regulation after the ones that took place last year and therefore no strict timeline. But the idea is still in the ...

According to the Verizon Trip Planer they don't offer LTE roaming to Germany for all devices I checked. You can use that tool to look up coverage and plans based on your devices. Even if this were working, the plans seem more expensive than what you can get in Germany. All networks now provide LTE coverage but you need an unlocked device which works with ...

Forfaits Bloqués Sans Engagement I am afraid France is a country where mobile internet is still very expensive. You could buy a standard prepaid SIM card and top it up with credit. You could then burn through this credit using internet data. Beware that rates are often somewhat expensive. SFR for example will charge you 0,50€/internet session, limited to ...

Some providers such as b-mobile and eConnect offer SIM pre-orders: you order it before leaving and it is shipped to your hotel or the airport post office for you to pick up. Note that the post office at Haneda airport is located in the domestic Terminal 1, so you would need to take a (free) shuttle bus to go there from the international terminal. (At Narita ...

All three of the major operators sell prepaid SIM cards with a data allowance from their counters on level 2 or Suvarnabhumi airport. Providing you have an unlocked GSM phone / tablet (no CDMA), you can have 1GB of data for 7 days for 300 Baht (less than US$10). True and DTAC both have 4G networks, and the tourist plans also have free wifi which is widely ...

I live in Uruguay (and use ANCEL), but I'm in no other way affiliated with them. I just use them and recommend them when have friends visiting because they're, in my opinion, the best choice available here. With their Kit Prepago, you get: 500 SMS to other ANCEL mobiles 512 MBs to use the LTE network (or 384 MBs if you use the 3G infrastructure) 1000 mins ...

The BlackBerry Q10 was actually sold in five different models, with their radio bands customized by which carriers sold them. While all of them will give you basic voice coverage in New Zealand, not all of them will give you 3G or 4G coverage. Look up your specific model number on the box that the phone came in, on the label behind the battery, or in the ...

We've got four cellular companies and all four offer prepaid sim cards. Here are the links to their websites, they have english versions and maps of their sales offices. http://kcell.kz, http://beeline.kz, www.tele2.kz, www.altel.kz. There are a lot of small reseller offices in the airports, train stations and shops, but they generally don't speak english ...

Just got back from a month in England, France, Belgium, Netherlands. Texting worked perfectly; phone was fine at 20 cents/minute (though when wifi is available, Google voice is 1 cent per minute); the data at "2G" made me long for the old days with my dial-up modem (56k): typical speeds I got on the free international data roaming plan were 10 to 15k (not ...

Looks like it'll be option 1 unless you can get a good roaming deal at home before leaving. I travel a lot between the two countries and also only really care about data, as far as I know there's no prepaid-SIM that even allows roaming between the two. For a long time I was using dual SIMs RedPocket / Koodo, it seem though the best option is getting a US ...

I'm not local from uruguay, but I spent a few summer vacations there. It semes that ANTEL has around 50% of the mobile market and, as far as I remember, ANTEL was the only company providing POTS telephony in Uruguay. It used to be a nation-wide monopoly and it seems to remain this way as this link (in spanish) says. That's why they can provide a much cheaper ...

The PDF you provided is both in Slovenian and English language. The English part starts roughly in the middle, so there is no need to translate. Be aware that Tušmobil's cell coverage is not very good outside major cities and other populated areas. To cover the grey area, they have an agreement with the national cell provider Telekom Slovenije, formerly ...

The iPhone 6, unusually amongst smartphones, has such a wide variety of radio bands, it can roam, or be used directly, on virtually any network in the US, (or the world!) and obtain 4G LTE service on any network. Which network actually gets used will depend on the SIM you are using and the roaming agreements that that provider has with US carriers. But the ...

There are only three operators in Australia that actually own and operate their own networks, and they are: Telstra, the former state monopoly. My usual recommendation if you're planning to travel even slightly off the beaten track, since they have the widest network by a long shot, but a bit more expensive than the competition. Optus, an arm of ...

Not a complete answer, but I used Similicious during a month long trip to Canada from the UK last year. Can't fault them. I took data only (used skype for calls, but they have voice/data plans), they asked about where I'd be to ensure best provider (was primarily in Alberta so got Rogers and 4G for most of the trip) and device to ensure correct sim type was ...

Coverage in Italy is good across all three main operators: TIM Vodafone and Wind. I would suggest Wind for it's value for money. With Wind you can get 100 minutes, 200 sms and 1GB for 10€ + 1€ (activation cost). They call this All Inclusive Ricaricabile. They also have an Internet-only offer giving you 3GB for 9€, which will however expire soon (8th ...
