I recently had the opportunity to review their services on my circuit to Holland [stories from my trip coming soon..] and ugh…they own every other network out there. More and more people travel now (contrary to US dollar going MIA) and an absolute necessity is communication with those who are home. The costs are reasonable, far better than what I have back home, where Orange and Vodafone rule the market, charging a lot for average services. They cover over 200 countries some of which I never knew they existed like Mayotte or Gambia, and 20+ cruise lines.
