Big Sky Nation Skyroam Hotspot Pocket WIFI Review: The Reliable Internet Service Provider Anywhere You Go
Few days before I left for Japan, I initially planned on just buying a local SIM card for my internet needs in Japan. I know renting a pocket WIFI would be the best option but I’m already running out of time and getting one at the airport requires a credit card and since I don’t have one, I definitely can’t get one at the airport.
Coincidentally, I was contacted by Big Sky Nation, exactly the day before my trip and they are asking if I can review their product. Perfect Timing right?
