HOPSIM

The globe has shrunk, but not literally yet. We still need to go to places and travel overseas and while we do this, staying connected becomes an issue. International roaming charges have been very high and have been nothing short of luxury for the average traveller. Shown below are the international rates for an Airtel customer from Maharashtra going to the US:

The rates are similar with other service providers. And, here is where HopSim hops in. HopSim looks like a promising venture which aims to remove all these hassles. Once you buy a HopSim, you get a Monaco based phone number that enables you to make calls globally for 95 cents and incoming calls are charged 35 cents per minute which is about half as compared to normal charges. HopSim also gives you the number in advance so that you can distribute it among family, friends and colleagues beforehand. One big advantage is that there are no monthly bills once you get the sim for $99 and then you need to reload it every year to keep the sim active. Another point in comparison is the number of countries in which they operate. While companies like Vodafone and Airtel are present in more than 150 countries, HopSim is active in 80 only countries. Hop World Wide SIM will have a pre-assigned mobile number and will be ready to use straight out of the package and no activation would be necessary. Calling from the Hop Sim is also a bit different, the details about which are available on its website: http://intouchsmartcards.com/Hop_SIM_Card.htm
