Definition of roaming is used when a mobile phone is being used outside of the network coverage area of its local network,
and automatically connects to any available cellular network in another country and provides its user with an ability
to automatically make and receive voice calls, access Internet or to get access to other services,
during trips outside of the geographical network coverage area of local network using GSM frequencies.
Roaming agreements with mobile networks operators guarantee to end user that a wireless device
(as a rule mobile phone) will continue being seamlessly connected to a mobile network.
Today modern mobile phones by default have automatic mobile network selection, which means
that a phone will automatically register in a foreign network, which will provide a strongest signal.
As a rule, countries usually have several mobile networks available, with which your mobile operator
made so called “roaming agreements”. These foreign operators may provide various speeds.
This cause may also be influenced if you are located in or outside of EU.
But unfortunately international roaming service does not come cheap. When you are abroad
all your local rates and discounts are no longer applied. For calls home or in a country you
are located at, your operator, when you return home, may charge you tens or even hundreds
times more compared to your local monthly bill.
If EU residents during previous years can witness roaming rates getting lower within EU,
then rates for calls, text messages (SMS) and Internet outside of EU are especially high
due to high roaming rates.
Therefore the only way to save on roaming expenses in these countries is to use
a so called international SIM card, which is airBalticcard Mobile international SIM.
We suggest using our rate calculator, so that you could compare for yourself if you should overpay
for roaming during your trip or instead by purchasing airBalticcard to continue using mobile network
saving while at the same time saving up to 90% comparing to the roaming rates of your mobile provider.
