Why did you originally move from Fi to T-Mobile?

I got an Apple Watch LTE that I wanted to use the LTE function on. Which is not supported by FI. Shortly after that T-mo announced Global Plus.

I've been using ais sim2fly for my asia trips, pretty happy with the service
it's refillable online as well

asia countries: 4GB/8days, $10 or $2.5/GB (22 mostly east asian countries plus Australia)

global countries: 15GB/1year, $88 or $6/GB (72 countries/cities)



SIM2FLY the best-value roaming SIM for everyone!

comparable with google fi (per month, $20 + $60 to get up to 15GB)

unfortunately not too useful if you don't read thai the link to the plans is in Thai with no option to switch to English, but the drop down menu for accessing (my non existant account) are in English? Google doesn't offer the translate option on the url bar, not sure why.

Got the initial sim from Amazon, topping up via mobiletoup.com(5% surcharge,some cards are picky with the visa 3d verification)

If you have line pay, u can try reloading directly with ais (doesn't work with USA line accounts)

Using their iOS/Android app to track usage (in English)

TMobile now offer these intl passes

$5 1 day 500MB
$35 10 days 5GB
$50 30 days 15GB
(No mention about tethering though)
​​​​​​
dont have to signup for the monthly global plus plan (which gives you 15GB intl data for $50 but also 5GB intl tethering)

Has anyone used the high speed options in China? I saw a post on Reddit that mentioned staying on the cell network keeps you outside of the firewall, but then one person said they had the high speed package and were getting hit by the great firewall. The theory was that perhaps adding the high speed package keeps your data local instead of routing back to the USA.

Looking for anyone with experience using the high speed options in China.

No worries. Using a foreign network service will never have issues because traffic is always routed through TMO servers. That person who said otherwise is just clueless or may have been on a hotel network WiFi unknowingly.
