Most of us simply accept high roaming fees as an unavoidable fact of international travel. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Today, we’re launching the ultimate solution to those pesky roaming fees: Global by US Mobile.
The Global by US Mobile app is now available on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store in more than a hundred different countries, so travelers from all over the world can take advantage of US Mobile’s low-cost, high-speed data plans. With annual plans at just $60 per year (that’s $5/ month!) Global by US Mobile features some of our most affordable plans.
Here are more details about the first four plans that we’re launching on Global by US Mobile:
- Global ($60): This plan gives you access to 13 GB of data in 73 different countries and regions across the globe for 365 days.
- USA & Canada ($60): This plan gives you access to 35 GB of data in the USA and Canada for 365 days. (Plus, your data also works in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and Hong Kong).
- Asia Pacific ($60): This plan gives you access to 17 GB of data in 20 different countries and regions across Asia and the Pacific for 365 days.
- Europe ($20): This plan gives you access to 10 GB of data in 35 different countries and regions across Europe for 30 days. (Most US Mobile customers use less than 10 GB per month at home in the US so this is more than enough for an entire trip).
Global by US Mobile allows you to access high-speed data on local networks in 70+ countries (and counting!) on any eSIM-compatible device — tablets included.
Whether you’ve already got a plan on our network or not, Global by US Mobile lets you tap into unthrottled 4G data in every corner of the world (and 5G where it’s available). Plus, you get access to our 24/7 customer support team to solve any connectivity troubles you may have, whenever and wherever you need help.
Using eSIM technology, Global by US Mobile allows you to connect to the best local networks as soon as you arrive at your destination. Whether you’re a frequent business traveler, studying abroad, or just need a quick getaway, Global by US Mobile has the perfect international data plan for you.
Read on to learn more about how Global by US Mobile works — and how you can hop on board.
How Does Global by US Mobile Work?
As of today’s launch, the Global by US Mobile app features four different international data plans — that number’s sure to grow as we continue partnering with the best local networks in countries and regions all over the world. Currently, our annual plans all cost $60, while our 30-day Europe plan costs $20.
With annual plans at $60, you’ll pay about half of what you probably already pay on subscription services like Netflix and Spotify. But more importantly, it’s a tiny fraction of what frequent travelers often end up paying in roaming fees on other carriers.
Data shows that the average business traveler spends $15.10 per day in roaming fees when they’re traveling abroad — that’s a little over $75 for a short five-day trip. And even international data passes on major carriers are far from ideal.
With Global by US Mobile, you pay a flat fee upfront. When you buy an annual plan, you pay $60 for all your travels throughout the entire year — not for four days of your family vacation. And even on our 30-day Europe plan, you’ll begin making significant savings after just two days of your trip.
Here’s how Global compares to those international travel passes on other major carriers:
|Travel Plan||Global by US Mobile (Annual plan)||AT&T International Day Pass||Verizon TravelPass|
|Base price||$60 per year||$10 per day||$10 per day|
|What you pay for a two-week trip||$60||$140||$140|
For now, these plans are data-only, but that data allows you to access several social media apps, including Facebook and WhatsApp, so you’ll always be connected to friends and family back home.

Why Use Global by US Mobile?
To put it simply, we’ve partnered with local network operators all over the world to get you the fastest coverage for as little as $5 a month.
Anyone with an eSIM-compatible device and the Global by US Mobile app can purchase one of our international data plans. eSIM technology makes things super convenient, allowing you to activate your plan in just about five minutes, either from the comfort of your hotel room or the airport terminal. That way, you can skip the hassle of rushing around to find a travel SIM card.
And since most of these plans last the whole year, you can even use your data at home, leaving no dollar wasted. Whether you use it as a secondary (or even main) line at home or just for travel, you’ll be able to tap into high-speed data wherever you are.
