I’m off to North america for work in 6 weeks, will be there for 6 1/2 months, working on a cruise ship, travelling mostly from NY to Canada/Florida and the Caribbean. Looking for a sim card possibly for data in port around the US and Canada – not huge amounts of data, and they seem to throttle rather than cut off when you run out. Anyone seen any good options, that are simple to obtain, with no fixed abode…..February 28, 2018 at 12:11 am NZDT #4191Adam JobbinsKeymaster
What phone do you have?
I could be wrong, but I believe it’s possible to get a phone ‘plan’ in the US even if you aren’t a resident, which will probably work out a lot more cost effective for that time frame as I’ve never found their prepaid plans (on any carrier) to be very cost good value – tho it has been a few years since I’ve used one (Vodafone $5 roaming FTW). I don’t think you’ll need a fixed address (or you can probably just make one up)
My personal experience too has been that the AT&T network performs better for data, and had better overlaps with the cell bands used by phones from outside North America. I think T-Mobile has gotten better since they’ve rolled out LTE, but I still think AT&T is considered the better option for performance and compatibility.February 28, 2018 at 7:12 am NZDT #4192
Sweet, that seems to be where I got too as well.

Anyone know the best place to get an AT&T sim in NZ, or either LAX or IAH?
