Who should use an eSIM?

If you know what a SIM card is, you'll understand what an eSIM is right away. If your phone was made with eSIM in mind, you might want to switch to this embedded technology. It's easier, cheaper, and faster to get data on your phone.

Since most Airhub eSIM plans are just for data, many customers would benefit from the eSIM solution. Today, we'll talk about some of the most common types of users and why an eSIM is perfect for them.

But before we do that, let's answer a crucial question:

So, what is an eSIM?

You may be curious about what an eSIM is. "eSIM" stands for "embedded SIM card," which is a SIM card built right into your phone or device. Your eSIM is a chip soldered into your device, unlike a physical SIM card. This means you'll never have to swap a nano or mini-SIM card again.

Your data goes with you everywhere you take your phone. Isn't that great?

You can access data and download local or international data plans with just a few taps.

eSIM advantages

Some of the essential things about eSIMtechnology are:

You'll never have to look for a SIM seller while traveling.

When you get home, you never get a roaming bill full of surcharges and other nasty surprises.

Connect right away to a mobile network as soon as you land.

When you use an eSIM, you don't have to pay for expensive services from a roaming carrier, and you can still get fast, cheap, and efficient wireless data.

eSIMs for people who travel a lot

Airhub has eSIM plans for use in more than 190 countries and regions. Because of this, eSIM data plans are best for travelers who are always on the go.

We suggest looking for an eSIM by country if you are going on a trip (for business or pleasure) to one place. You'll pay for the cheapest plan, which will only cover you in your area.

We recommend our regional or global packages if you go to more than one place. Thanks to the regional packages, you can use the same eSIM in more than one place, which give you access to different continents and areas. The global package takes this even further by giving you access to 87 countries worldwide.

Here are some of the benefits you'll notice right away as a traveler with an embedded SIM card:

Get online as soon as you land at the airport if you are traveling for business.

Check email and other work-related messages while traveling from anywhere (No more wi-fi hotspots)

You can send, sign, and transfer essential papers whenever and wherever you want.

Have important video calls

For travel for fun, stay in touch with friends and family while you're away.

Post pictures from your trip on social media.

Link up with ridesharing, short-term housing, and hotel rooms

Keep track of flights, maps, and GPS services while traveling.

Anything is possible when you stay connected with a device that works with eSIM.

eSIM for travelers who work online

Suppose you are the kind of person who moves for work. You could be working on a beach by the ocean one day and up in the mountains talking to your project manager the next.

As a digital nomad, the only roaming you should do is from country to country.

As a digital nomad, it's excellent to use eSIM. Digital nomads usually work from home for short periods and move to new places every few months.

So having a temporary eSIM set up and being able to download and add to a plan on the go is the best way to stay connected.

Here's why a nomad should get an eSIM:

There are no long-term commitments with pre-paid data plans.

Change your plans whenever you leave the country.

The ability to stay connected without switching your eSIM using regional or global plans.

eSIM for flight or seafarers

Are you a captain, sailor, flight attendant, or someone who travels for work in another way? You might be the right person for an eSIM!

The worst thing about traveling for work is having a short stopover in another country. If you are only in the country for a few hours, you won't have time to find a SIM vendor, buy, install, and set up a physical SIM card. (That also means keeping track of every SIM chip for every location and the time it takes to switch.)

Since you can download and set up an eSIM anywhere before you leave on a trip, you can connect automatically when you land.

Here's why flight attendants and sailors should use an eSIM:

Turn on data service as soon as you land.

Multiple virtual lines let you connect to any place you're going.

Rates for data that vary by country and region

eSIM as a local data alternative

Most people who use Airhub eSIM are on the go, but some use their eSIM at home as a flexible alternative to data.

Using an eSIM as a local data alternative makes sense if the carrier's network is slow or unreliable or if you only want to use a data plan for a few days or weeks in a month.

You can also use this data to connect a device that doesn't have data to one that does (giving you easy access to Google, watch, store and stream content).

eSIMs might be right for you if you're the kind of customer who wants a different kind of data service.

Here's why it's best to use an eSIM locally:

Flexible data plans (1GB, 3GB, 5GB, etc.)

Plans for flexible validity periods (one week, two weeks, one month, etc.)

Your eSIM phone can connect to other devices and act as a temporary modem.

Quick fix for carriers with different plans.
