During the summer of 2012, thousands of tourists will arrive in the UK from all over the United States, Canada and across the globe; many hundreds of thousands will attend sporting venues for the London Games. Almost everyone will have cell phones. How many of those people will find a shocking bill waiting for them at home, simply because they didn’t think about the cost of roaming while using their cellular phone abroad?
It isn’t just about airtime rates anymore; it is about data as well. With the rise in the use of Smartphones, many of us gobble up data like nothing, not even realizing how much we are using. We are getting used to having a wireless app for everything.
Wise travelers will shop around and look at alternatives for communicating while in London. Cell phone rental at the London Games with a UK SIM card is a great way to make sure that you have a cell phone that will work plus low rates using local airtime. Most providers will offer free incoming calls. In addition to free incoming calls in the UK, Cellhire offers great rates to call back to many countries, including the US. They also offer mobile broadband rental for use in London with Mobile USB sticks / Internet sticks. Using a UK SIM within a BlackBerry Smartphone rental for mobile data use will save a great deal of money. If you are unsure of how much data you use, or if you need to manage your usage to control costs, the Cellhire DataManger application is provided to all customers free of charge. It is a great tool that keeps you on top of and in control of your usage, so you won’t be surprised when you receive your bill back at home.
