Any experience with eSIM for travel in the US?

I used to use Roam Mobility when traveling to the US for my data and phone, but they are discontinuing service due to effects from COVID-19. This got me to looking at alternatives for when I start travelling again. There doesn't seem to be much about eSIMs.

Anyone have any experience?

Maybe time for a new sticky or to combine with the current SIM sticky

See this thread about airalo.com Online esim Shop With Decent Prices

It may have changed since I used it 6 months ago, but my $3 for 7 days got me AT&T coverage, albeit with a French IP address. Longish ping but great data speeds.

Thanks for the link. Airalo was the main one that I kept coming across. Looks like they are on T-mobile in the US now.

As there are numerous threads on the subject, we'll retire this one.

Some suggested searches:
