Hi all
I'm just about to head overseas for 4 weeks visiting Hong Kong, uk, France, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Czechia and Singapore. I'm looking for a good value data card with say 3-5gb of data that can be used in all these countries.
Can anyone recommend a good multination data only SIM? I plan to use a Skype telephone number with the SIM so have no need of a telephone SIM.

Cheers Peter

Assuming HK is the first stop worth looking at some of the offerings their.

From memory 3 has some roaming focussed SIMs with decent amounts of data.

For under 1GB I'd recommend Flexiroam but it gets expensive at 3+GB

You have to watch out for some of these SIM cards as they have to be activated in their country of origin first (UK for instance).

I have recently swapped over to the new Optus SIM only plan at the discounted $40/mth and it has worked well internationally so far (excluding the absolute incompetence on the contractual side of things).
