What people talk about us
The most daring travelers have already tried Gigago.com. Will you?
I recently used the eSIM from Gigago.com for my trip to Singapore, and I must say I’m impressed with their service. Immediately following the transaction completion I received the information I needed to install the eSIM remotely, something that was aided by the copious documentation that was provided in my language (English). The eSIM was successfully installed on my iPhone 11 and I think I am good to go.
I highly recommend the unlimited plan for 15 days from Gigago.com to anyone looking for an easy and affordable way to stay connected while traveling in China. While I did encounter some difficulties installing the esim, the team was quick to respond and helped me resolve the issue in a timely and professional manner. The esim itself was fast and reasonably priced.
It worked straight away after data plan activation as per instruction. 10GB for $12 for 15 days is amazing. And best thing is eSIM which is used for data only and if needed still someone can call your primary/home number. I couldn’t be happier with the service. I will recommend this to anyone who is about to travel to Vietnam, Thailand, and other southeastern Asia.
Bought eSIM a couple of days in advance of entering Australia. Activated at the border by sending text as per instructions. Immediately up and running with speedy internet usage. Had to make change to APN’s to facilitate personal hotspot usage but again followed simple instructions provided and works perfectly. All in all a great experience from a well priced package.
