Data roaming occurs when you use data connection outside of your carrier's coverage zone. Your mobile network can make substantial charges for roaming outside of your network coverage zone and you may end up with an enormous bill without realizing it.
Keepgo Mobile WiFi Hotspot or Data SIM card is a convenient and affordable way to have data connectivity for your phone, tablet, laptop, or any other mobile device. Keepgo internet SIM or Mobile Hotspot is a much more affordable solution to connect to the Web while traveling internationally.
The most obvious way to minimize or eliminate data roaming fees is use only WiFi. Keep in mind that it is not a foolproof method for many of us because our phones or tablets are often needed most while we are on a move, and not while we are sitting in an internet café or a hotel lobby (remember that most of the hotels still profit by charging for WiFi) It is important to mention that public internet access is not secure and you are much more prone to identity theft when using public Internet connection. You will be more protected by using your own secure mobile connection with Keepgo.
No matter where your travels take you, your connection to the internet will be private and secure. Password protected encryption means you’ll never have to worry about questionable public WiFi networks and information leaks.

Most of the largely populated areas have great cellular signal and your mobile device will work without any disruptions. However, there is a number of factors that can prevent you from getting good mobile coverage.
You may be able to get weak or no signal due to limitation in topography (the surroundings), network architecture (the location of cellular antennae) and capacity (the number of callers communicating in the area at given time). If you have concern regarding the coverage in the area you are traveling to, please get in touch with our customer support in advance. Additionally you may visit the internet websites that list dead spots organized by service providers and location.
