This post makes the following assumptions: You are a digital nomad who works online while traveling internationally, you change countries frequently (every other month or more), and you need large amounts of data (more than 10 Gbs per month). If these assumptions do not apply to you, this advice may not, either.

I spend a lot of time deep in the weeds, comparing the fine print of one international sim card or travel mifi to another. But the most important question is:
Does it work where you're going?
If it doesn't work where you are, it doesn't matter how much it costs!
So, I made a chart to make it easy to narrow down what to get. Fortunately and unfortunately, this chart covers almost 200 countries, so it was too big to fit in a blog post. You're going to have to navigate away from the blog to see the table of all recommended travel data sim cards and mifis, and which countries they cover.
After you know which international sim card or travel mifi work where you're going, be sure to read the ultimate guide to buying an International Sim Card in 2019, or the simplified diagram to further decide which is best for you.
