As Summer Travel Heats Up, GigSky Expands Coverage for iPad with Apple SIM

PALO ALTO, Calif., June 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- International wireless carrier and mobile technology company GigSky, today announced it will offer cellular data plans for iPad travelers with Apple SIM in over 140 countries, including all top travel destinations, plus additions like Ecuador, Argentina, Jamaica, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Isle of Man, and The Virgin Islands - up from more than 90 countries and territories.

The recent release of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, which features an embedded Apple SIM, has prompted a new wave of excitement at GigSky.  It's now even easier for customers to access GigSky's affordable, short-term data plans directly on iPad, avoiding the hassle of buying a local SIM when they travel.

"The new iPad Pro is the greatest travel companion ever," enthused GigSky CEO, Ravi Rishy-Maharaj. "We're thrilled to be adding more countries, more LTE coverage, and more data at the same price. Our expanded coverage means travelers can use GigSky service on iPad most anywhere this summer to get online and connect, like they do at home, to everything that's important to them - work, family, friends, social media, or their favorite travel apps."

GigSky World Mobile Data lets you keep your iPad connected in over 140 countries and territories around the world. Convenient, affordable, short-term data plans wherever, whenever you travel.

All data packages are prepaid, with what Rishy-Maharaj terms "no asterisk" pricing.  "Customers select the data they need, for just the time they need it. No extra fees or taxes, and no contracts. GigSky is for travelers who want the control to connect anytime, anywhere at a reasonable price."
