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.
Keepho 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.
