Buying a prepaid SIM card is often a good option to remain connected especially when Wifi spots are few and far between. Operators often make their websites very unhelpful and try to sell silly lotteries or games rather than offering clear information on their offer/costs, etc. On this page, we attempt to palliate this by centralizing the various alternatives available in every country. Please contribute and add to the table.
