GlocalMe – Connect globally like a local!
by Sami Mughal November 26, 2017
We live in a connected world. We rely on the internet for pretty much everything: whether it is working, banking, shopping or just getting that takeaway delivered to your home. As the saying goes, home is where your WiFi automatically connects. However, what if you could take this WiFi with you, wherever you go? By wherever, I really do mean wherever! GlocalMe is providing a worldwide (over 100 countries) solution that supplies you internet via CloudSIM technology, wherever you go.
GlocalMe – Features
4G High-Speed Internet
Safe and personal WiFi
Connects in over 100 countries worldwide
Packages available for a specific country, region or worldwide
Works via CloudSIM technology, automatically connects you to the best possible signal, wherever you go.
Different options for hardware available (such as G3, G2, U2)
How it works
The premise is simple. GlocalMe have gone and done deals with the local service providers in all of the countries they offer service in. Using CloudSIM technology, as soon as you fire up your device, it will connect to the network with the best possible signal.
As soon as the signal drops below 3 bars, the device will automatically look for the best network. If there is a better one, it will change networks. As a user, the process will be seamless and you won’t know any different. If you are in an area that has absolutely no mobile signal, you won’t get any data either.
The device will allow you to connect up to 5 WiFi devices. You will have your own private network, with a dedicated password.
To get this to work, you need a GlocalMe device such as the U2, G2 or the G3. They come with 1GB free data.
To access more, you will need a data package as well. Packages are available for individual countries, regions as well as worldwide. Costs start at €5, and go all the way up to €335, a package that offers you 2GB a month, for a whole year, covering all compatible countries.
Pay as you go is only €0.05/MB.
There is the option of using your own SIMs in the devices as well, giving you access to the local internet without incurring any extra costs.
The Hardware – U2 and G3
Last year we looked at the G2. It was a brilliant device, offering us a great service, connectivity, as well as the ability to charge our own devices.
The G3 is the next version of the G2 device. It comes with the following specs:
|4G: 150 Mbps
|4G: 50 Mbps
|Battery Capacity(Power Bank)
|Standard Micro USB
|WIFI maximum simultaneously
|SIM card slots
(Support band for external SIM card)
|LTE-FDD Band: 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/9/17/19/20
LTE-TDD Band: 38/39/40/41
WCDMA Band: 1/2/4/5/6/8/9/19
GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
The device features a screen, which makes it easy to keep a tab on your usage. It runs on Android, so you could use it as a secondary device as well.
Battery life is immense. 15 hours of usage means you can last almost 2 working days! Built-in battery charger is a lifesaver too.
The U2, thinner and lighter, with no screen, is probably my favourite connectivity device ever. It can easily slip into any pocket or bag. It comes with the following features:
|4G: 150 Mbps
|4G: 50 Mbps
