0044.co.uk Global Sim

global sim

I researchd a lot of different sim card providers as below but chose to go with 0044. When we received the SIM it is actually supplied by a company called eKit so I think 0044 are just a reseller however their rates look similar to those through the eKit website. The reasons for choosing 0044 were:

  • Good customer reviews where a few other providers had some negative comments online
  • The initial cost included free credit
  • A UK number as standard with a free US number option if required
  • Cheap calling rates
  • An average number of free inbound calling countries\

Below is a copy of the comparison I did between SIM providers. Note the example rates are based on a Spain to UK text or phone call per minute.
