Where to get the best travel SIM?

Hi, I am quite a busy traveler and I need a lot of mobile data for my business trip. So, may I get some recommendation on where to get the best travel SIM?

Tmobile, global free internet. Only available in the US for US residents and companies. Nowhere else in the world.

The moment you land you have unlimited free internet data anywhere, no need to buy or change sim.

Our company used it for many years, cost is 1/3 less than major carriers’ basic monthly rates.

Too good to be true but true.

Yep. I have used T-Mobile for years and never worry about foreign SIMs.

If you are going to Italy as per your other post, the TIM for Visitors plan is the one to get upon landing. The SIM is valid through EU countries these days with no roaming charges. Note that you must have an unlocked device.

I found it depends on where you travel. I buy a local SIM card in the country I'm traveling. There are more expensive universal options like One Sim or World Sim.

We used a mifi instead of a sim.
