Not real actual 'travelling', but what may be interesting for those worldwide travellers (like most spotters
), especially when you are an internet/mail/facebook/twitter/etc junkie (like myself
), to bring down your data (roaming) bill while travelling abroad;
) offers a solution for internetting while abroad, which uses an additional device -about the size of a mobile phone- which acts as a WiFi hotspot that connects you to the internet. You can attach up to five of your own devices (or those of your fellow travellers!), laptops, tablets or mobile phones.
Although they claim to have a 'worldwide coverage', this actually is only in some 50 countries, although this includes most European countries and selected other countries worldwide (including for example USA, Australia, South Africa).
I haven't used it yet myself, but I've read a couple of reviews, which in general are positive (apart from one guy which didn't get back his deposit!), and looking at the prices they offer, this certainly beats the costs Dutch telco's charge you when roaming on your standard subscription
Certainly there are other similar companies around, but I by accident I came across this one, and thought it might be of use.
