eSIM comparison:

Most people won’t like the idea of swapping SIM cards every time they want to use a travel data plan. This is why new smartphones offer a feature called eSIM. Simply put, it allows you to add a virtual SIM card without actually doing so. This works like a charm, but there are less desirable aspects of a digital-only connection – like slow speeds and drops in coverage. We’ve put together a list of providers who will offer global data plans that are distributed via eSIM but also provide high speeds and reliable connections.

There are a lot of SIM card stickers, but eSIM is the future. It allows you to add a SIM card without actually doing so. A few providers will offer global data plans that are distributed via eSIM – we’ve put together a list of them in Beneko App.

If you’re an international traveler, chances are that your phone will need a SIM card with data. After all, you don’t want to miss out on important work emails and phone calls just because you’re on vacation! Thankfully, many mobile providers offer global data plans. But when you buy a physical SIM card for your phone, it can often be quite expensive – especially if you swap them out every time you travel. Fortunately for us, there’s now a better solution: the eSIM.

This is a guide on how to find the best international data plans for eSIM – that’s smartphone-based SIM that can connect to any network without a physical SIM card.

PROs of eSIM:

You no longer need to carry around a physical SIM card or a SIM card sticker when using an eSIM. Simply order one in our Beneko App and download it into your phone. Done!

With an eSIM, you can easily switch between providers without having to order new SIM cards. With no shipping and waiting time involved, eSIMs save you a lot of hassle.

eSIM is essentially a SIM card that you can access via the internet. No cards, no stickers, no waiting time – it’s all done via the cloud.

eSim, or embedded SIM, is the latest trend in cell phone and tablet connectivity. It allows you to change from one mobile network to another without having to swap out your SIM card. While traditional SIM cards have been around since the early 2000s, eSIMs have only been available for about a year now. However, the technology is growing increasingly popular as more providers offer them to their customers.

 

CONs of eSIM:

Not all the mobile phones support eSIMs, please check if your mobile phone supports eSIM before buying any plans.

eSIMs are not as flexible as traditional SIM cards. You can’t transfer an eSIM between different devices, so if you’re travelling with a mobile phone and a tablet, you will have to purchase separate eSIMs with the same or a different provider.

It’s a little more difficult to move an eSIM between devices. The benefit of that is you typically lock in rates and coverage with the company, which is great for frequent travelers.

You will not have access to calls and texts, as travel eSIM plans are data only. 

Best eSIM providers:

Offer plans from 7 days to 365 days of data expiration

Offer global and regional multi-passes, not only country specific plans

Let you buy, topup and see your detailed consumption and spending

No initial costs to buy an eSIM, let you pay only for GB

Offer data plans with no expiration date

with Beneko App, you choose what fits you best.

Your physical SIM will continue to work normally in your iPhone. You can select which of the two SIMs you use for data connectivity or even use them simultaneously. 

 

Do I get a new phone number with eSIM?
