GigSky is now offering its data plans in over 180 countries on Apple SIM, plus great new pricing, the company announced Tuesday. GigSky in the summer of 2016 expanded its service to more than 140 countries worldwide, meaning their affordable mobile data plans for iPad users with Apple SIM are now available in about 40 new markets versus last summer.
Some of the new additions to GigSky’s service on Apple SIM include Argentina, The Bahamas, Belize, Bhutan, Colombia, French Polynesia, Guam, Kenya, Madagascar, Morocco and Nepal.
Here’s the full list of newly added markets where GigSky is available as of today:
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
- Burkina Faso
- Cape Verde
- Côte d’Ivoire
- French Polynesia
- Papua New Guinea
- San Marino
- Sierra Leone
The company now covers more countries than any other mobile operator on Apple SIM.
With Apple SIM, you just select a GigSky data plan within Settings on your iPad, no paperwork needed whatsoever. The service is separately available on other iOS devices via the GigSky SIM and app.
GigSky’s 30-day plans now offer more data:
- Canada and Mexico—5GB for $50, previously 1GB for the same price
- United States and Puerto Rico—5GB for $50, up from 3GB for the same price
- Europe—Most $50 GigSky plans now come with 3GB of data.
- All other countries—Minimum 1GB, with many plans offering 2GB or more
Shorter-term plans at lower prices are available as well.
