Here's how to get internet access on the cheap while traveling abroad

Staying connected to the internet while traveling abroad is not always easy. Sure, you can hunt for Wi-Fi hotspots at coffee shops, but those aren't always reliable and you're usually obliged to buy an overpriced cup of coffee in order to get hooked up. Having a portable, global-ready Wi-Fi hotspot or a data-enabled SIM card, on the other hand, is far more convenient when visiting a new country. The data connection should be reliable enough for every-day use, and the fees are usually far more reasonable than what carriers charge for international data roaming...

In Europe most of the coffee shops and bars I have been to have their own free wifi. Might not be as convenient but a hell of a lot cheaper.

This is very good information! Any news of similar services in Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Macau and Malaysia? Much appreciated! :-)

I used iphonetrip services and they and they have great service and fair prices.
They sent me an additional sim to use on my next trip. Sure I will!

If you want to travel to Poland check out mobile device called Polish Wifi - it has unlimited LTE connection.
