Pond Mobile provides the best international cell phone plans for frequent travellers, allowing our clients to use unlimited data and unlimited calls without international roaming rates. We strive to provide the best international roaming option for travellers.
If you're a frequent traveller, rules and regulations which these companies implement will take a significant toll on your wallet, never mind the high international roaming rates.
Here are just a few issues you might encounter when travelling with a mainstream carrier:
1. Bill Shock
With postpaid international roaming plans, you never know what you're going to be charged at the end.
You're given a vague price per minute or per some amount of cell phone data, but it's very difficult to estimate what the final bill would look like.
On the contrary, Pond Mobile provides single-charge plans and gives you a precise amount you're going to be paying monthly upfront. Check out this list of the best phone plans for international travel in 2020.
2. Roaming Charges
International roaming charges heavily depend on the location of travel.
If you're using a traditional carrier, you're most definitely going to receive a drastically different bill depending on the destination you're travelling to.
Plans that cover data and voice in Mexico or Canada tend to be much cheaper than the ones you'd need for Europe or Asia - moreover, they will offer you data with very small limits, and it's unrealistic to expect that you'll manage just fine with 200 MB.
In comparison, with Pond Mobile you're looking at the same exact price in 200+ countries for unlimited high-speed data.
3. Data & Calls In Roaming
There's rarely an international roaming option for unlimited international data and calls.
The absolute majority of cell phone carriers only provide you with a number of certain data and call packages (200MB, 1GB and so forth), and no unlimited data roaming. After you've exceeded this amount, you're going to have to pay extra, usually at way less favourable rates.
However, Pond Mobile has got you covered: our services include unlimited data worldwide and calls at consistently high speeds (3G/LTE), with no additional or hidden charges over what you're paying for the cell phone plan.
4. Excessive Roaming
Often times when the set limit of data you're receiving on prepaid international roaming plans is exceeded, data speed will be limited to 2G, and you're either going to have to deal with it or pay more to top up and have 3G.
On the contrary, Pond Mobile provides unlimited data that's consistently high-speed (3G/LTE) - you're not going to be punished for overusing data or have to make do with 2G.
We hope that now it's fairly obvious why so many travellers choose Pond Mobile as their international roaming option. Check out our plans and enjoy your next trip!
