INDIA TOURIST SIM CARD AND PREPAID SIM CARD IN INDIA

INDIA PREPAID SIM CARD BACKGROUND

First thing we have to say about internet and data connection in India is great in the big cities. Unless you go to the desert, mountains or any place far from the cities.

Obviously the best thing you can do to connect online is getting a prepaid sim card in India. We recommend you to get your India tourist sim card in the airport because you will avoid the hassle that you need to show many documents in an official store.
