So what's a SIM Local when it's at home?

This week we’ve launched our new website. We’ve been online for a couple of years, but it’s amazing how quickly things need to be refreshed and updated online. We decided to do a spring-clean of the appearance of the site, and also the cogs and wheels behind the scenes. With this in mind it seemed like perfect timing to launch our first blog.

So what is SIM Local? To put it very simply, we’re a company who sells local SIM cards. We offer an alternative to expensive roaming charges, which gives our customers more money to spend on the fun stuff like sightseeing, shopping, shows, sporting events and supper. 

The SIM Local team is based in two countries. We have a large team running our 3 stores in Heathrow airport, and the rest of us are split between our Dublin airport store and our head office just outside of Dublin city. We have some things in common with our typical customers. We love to travel, and are glued to our phones. We’ll be writing about interesting travel or mobile stories that we come across, or our favourite bugbear, roaming charges. The blog will also be a source of news for any new products, partnerships or store openings that we’re planning.

We’re also active on Twitter and Facebook, so don’t be shy about getting in touch. We also welcome emails to

 We have a few things up our sleeves in the coming months so come back to catch up with us!

I would be very useful to know the following, and this should be on your FAQ/Web pages
1. 2G/3G/4G data connection , if 4G what type of 4G system is used
2. Can it be used in non-phones, e.g. MiFi
3. If it’s in a phone can the phone be tethered
Thx, Tom
