Taking the Hassle Out of Updating Your Blog and Instagram Abroad
This post was written in partnership with World Sim.
Sharing photos on Instagram, publishing posts and arranging your next meet up with fellow travelers on Twitter or Whatsapp– these are the simple things travel bloggers can take for granted on home soil that are fundamental parts of being a blogger. What’s a girl or boy to do when they don’t want to drain their data and rack up a serious phone bill spend or seek out a free Wi-Fi connection with slightly iffy security issues?
You now have the option of taking free, secure and most importantly, affordable Wi-Fi with you wherever you travel by investing in the new WorldSIM Infinity.
Erm, what’s one of those then?
WorldSIM Infinity allows you to roam internationally, using WiFi and mobile across a huge network of providers as you travel, so you don’t need to switch off or check out, wherever you go.
WorldSIM Infinity is aimed at entrepreneurs on the move as well as those with a serious case of wanderlust who don’t want to wander off the radar or waste their travel budget paying for data. WorldSIM Infinity is designed to provide a seamless experience as you hop from country to country, so there’s no need to worry about the cost of calling back home to wish your best friend a happy birthday or to put off publishing a blog post until you’re checked in at the next hostel or hotel.
Stop waving your arm in the air
WorldSIM Infinity is not just an invention that focuses on convenience though – it’s also about experience. Do you seem to spend an inordinate amount of your time waving your tablet or smartphone or tablet in the air with one hand while crossing the fingers on your other hand and saying a silent prayer?
While we all secretly know it doesn’t really do any good, everyone is guilty of giving this a technique a whirl when they have a deadline they need to meet or a photograph or map they need to share in that moment.
Well now you could find you’re able to take a step back and stop self-motivating your mobile and hoping that the gods gift you with some 3G signal, because there’s some super sweet technology available that does all the waving for you, so to speak. Designed to connect to the fastest and cheapest network, the wonder tech of WorldSIM Infinity combs mobile coverage with over 50 million hotspots globally, so you should have a substantially better connection, wherever you are and all without the need to climb on the table or stand on a chair – or even enter any passwords but your data is still kept secure.
This is because WorldSIM Infinity combines global mobile and global Wi-Fi using an international sim for safety and convenience. When you’re in a Wi-Fi zone you’re automatically connected via secure VPN and when you’re not, you switch to using global sim, which costs up to 95 per cent less than other providers. To help you stay on budget the SIM is pay as you go but Wi-Fi access is unlimited.
Avoid a security SOS
What’s the point in shelling out for a paid service like Infinity when you can tap into free hotspots when you can find them? Unfortunately, free Wi-Fi isn’t as plentiful as we might wish. Seeking out free connections can be a time consuming and energy exhausting affair which might mean putting things off until you find a hotspot. But should you be catching a free ride in the first place?
By now everyone knows someone who has suffered at the hands of identity fraudsters or hackers and using unsecure connections, no matter how cost effective it may seem the time can leave your information and software vulnerable. Having your bank details swiped, your photos compromised or the use of your tablet or mobile blocked thanks to pesky person(s) unknown taking advantage of an non secure connection, can really put a dampener on your travel exploits. There’s no fun in freezing your bank account when you want to transfer funds to pay for flights for the next stage of your trip or you’re left staring at your smartphone screen willing it to work again.
Keep your costs down
There are of course some simple steps you can take to keep your data or mobile costs down low before you even depart. Where space allows, downloading music, movies and other essentials onto your device before you pack is a sensible strategy. It’s also best not to rely too much on travel apps or maps that need a data connection. Some apps can be used offline or you may even want to think about taking an old-fashioned travel book with you!
