Description

Please note: We also sell the multi-country Transatel data SIM card, which is a better value option in many countries. You are advised to compare both the Globalgig and Transatel SIM cards to work out which is the best option for you. Call us on 03 9988 0686 if you have any questions as to which of these two SIM cards is best for you.

Globalgig is a great value data roaming sim that works in over 100 countries. This sim card has great value plans with 4G data in Australia that is probably a good deal cheaper than the data sim you’re currently using at home and it also has cheap global data roaming rates in over 100 countries. It is the sim card you’ll buy for your trip to Europe or the USA, but will keep on using after you have returned home.

Here’s the deal:

  • No fuss post paid plans.
  • You’re billed in Australian dollars, and unlike most other data sim cards there is no problem paying for your service with a regular Australian credit card.
  • No need to top up in a language you don’t understand.
  • 24-hour Australian-based customer service.
  • Works in the following countries: Antarctica, Albania, Alderney, Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Austria, Australia, Barbados, Belgium, Brazil, British Virgin Islands, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Canada, Cayman Islands, Chile, China, Columbia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Desirade (French Antilles), Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Estonia, Fiji, Finland, France, French Polynesia, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Guernsey, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Isle of Man, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Jersey, Kosovo, Kuwait, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macau, Macedonia, Malaysia, Malta, Mayotte, Mexico, Monaco, Montenegro, Montserrat, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Northern Cyprus, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Romania, Russia, San Marino, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent & the Grenadines, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Turks & Caicos Islands, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States of America, Uruguay and the Vatican City.
  • Excellent coverage in over 100 different countries.
  • Fast 4G data in Australia on the Optus network and in the UK on the Three network.
  • Flexible plans: easily switch from one plan to another depending on what suits you at the time. The Traveller Plus plan is best suited if you only need occasional data use in Australia or if you're buying this SIM card primarily for use abroad, but the 4G Flexi plans are better value if you need a larger data allowance for use in Australia.

Three important points:

  1. This isn’t a prepaid service and you will charged each month for your data service. There are no contracts on the Flexi 4G Australian data plan and if you are on this plan you can cancel your service at any time (you won’t be charged for your next month as long as you cancel at least 48 hours before the end of your current billing period).
  2. Your service is charged per month. Your first month may be charged pro rata if you don't activate your service at the start of Globalgig's billing cycle and the full monthly fee (plus any excess data charges) will apply for each subsequent month).
  3. This SIM card is only available to Australian residents. You must use a billing address in Australia when activating your service.

Please note: We also sell the multi-country Transatel data SIM card, which is a better value option in many countries. You are advised to compare both the Globalgig and Transatel SIM cards to work out which is the best option for you.

Choose the best plan to suit you

Globalgig can be set up on six different rate plans, and the best option for you will depend on whether you need at lot of data for use at home in Australia, whether it is just as a backup or for occasional use or if you are a frequent traveller who needs regular data access in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the United States of America.

4G Flexi plans

These plans are best for use in Australia, although data roaming rates are reasonable for short trips abroad. With these plans you get an allowance of data access on the Optus 4G and 3G networks in Australia plus pay per MB rates in over 100 countries.

Using your Globalgig data SIM card outside Australia

All Globalgig data plans allow you to use your SIM while travelling outside Australia at simple affordable pay as you go rates. Use in zone 1 countries (basically most of western Europe plus New Zealand and the USA) is only 10c/MB if you are on a Flexi 4G plan or is included as part of your data allowance if you are on a Traveller Plus plan. Use in zone 2 countries (the rest of the world) is priced at 25c/MB.

Data access is only 10c/MB in the following (zone 1) countries:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, San Marino, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States of America

Data access is 25c/MB in the following (zone 2) countries:

Albania, Alderney, Anguilla, Antarctica, Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Barbados, Brazil, British Virgin Islands, Cambodia, Cayman Islands, Canada, Chile, China, Columbia, Costa Rica, Desirade (French Antilles), Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Fiji, French Polynesia, Gibraltar, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Guernsey, Grenada, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Isle of Man, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Jersey, Kosovo, Kuwait, Macau, Macedonia, Mayotte, Malaysia, Mexico, Montenegro, Montserrat, Nicaragua, Northern Cyprus, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Sri Lanka, St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent & the Grenadines, Thailand, Turks & Caicos Islands, United Arab Emirates and Uruguay

Coverage and data speed will depend on the capabilities of your device. Data is at 4G speed in Australia and the UK and 3G speed in other countries.

The 4G Flexi plan is cheaper than most Australian data plans, but with the added advantage of being able to switch to cheap roaming plans whenever you travel abroad

If you have a prepaid or a month-to-month postpaid data plan for your iPad with Optus, Telstra or Vodafone you'll most likely pay less if you switch to Globalgig for data access when at home in Australia. That's not to mention the massive data roaming costs that can cost as much as $20 per MB with some networks. In contrast, using the Globalgig SIM card at home will only cost $10 for 1 GB of data and you're free to switch plans to take advantage of international data packages whenever you travel abroad.

Note: the above prices are for use in Australia. The real savings kick in when you use this SIM card overseas where you can save more than 99% off the roaming charges charged by your standard Australian data SIM.

It's the only SIM you'll need, as it's cheap at home and abroad.

Works with all tablets including Apple iPads and Android tablets

This SIM card works with all tablets including:

  • Android tablets (including the Google Nexus tablet and Samsung Galaxy Tab)
  • Windows tablets (including the Microsoft Surface)
  • Apple iPads (all cellular models from the original iPad to the latest iPad Air, iPad Pro and iPad Mini.)

Works with most smartphones

This SIM card works with most phones for data service (phone calls and text messages are not supported). All you need is a smartphone that allows you to change the APN setting. Although you can't make conventional phone calls, with a data-only Globalgig SIM card in your phone you can take advantage of apps such as Skype or Viber to make phone calls through an app and use apps like Telegram or Whats App to send messages. Facetime and iMessage will work over your data connection allowing you to communicate with other Apple devices.

Use your phone or tablet as a personal hotspot

Unlike some sim cards, you are able to use your Globalgig data sim to create a personal hotspot from your phone or tablet so you can share your data connection with other Wi-Fi enabled devices including computers, tablets, iPod Touches and Kindles.
