EGYPT SIM CARD FOR TOURIST COMPARED AND PREPAID SIM CARD IN EGYPT BACKGROUND

First thing we have to say about Egypt sim card data connection in Egypt is great in the big cities. Unless you go to the desert or any place far from the cities. I didn’t go out so far and the connection was great all the time. Plus you can also get wifi in the hotels.

Obviously the best thing you can do to connect online is buying a prepaid sim card in Egypt. It will be efficient and it will allow you to connect anytime. We recommend you to buy an Egypt sim card in the airport because prices and packages are the same than in an official store.

Sometimes is hard to connect your laptop to the VPN and you have to be patient. If you go for a week you will find VPN with free trials. We used Atlas VPN, ExpressVPN, NordVPN, Surfshark and Proton VPN. When connecting the VPN to your device will make it slower than usual.
