So I just found out T-mobile has a international data and text plan for 1 gig starting at $50. Taxes and other fees will be assessed on top of that. The coverage works in over 120 countries and in those countries it will be similar to what the locals are getting. They will charge you $.20/minute usage fees for local calls and calls back to the united states. If you are connected to wifi, calls back to the US will be free. The data and text will be throttled from my understanding and it won’t be flying at 4G. I’m sure this is a more expensive option as to picking up SIM cards along the way. Especially when spending time out of the countries with coverage.
