August 10, 2020

However, getting a local SIM card should actually be one of the first things people do when they go to another country. Sure, even if they don't, they can still go online, but that means having to rely too much on different Wifi hotspots. So it's better to get a local SIM instead that will also give you your own internet data. And here in the Netherlands, here are the mobile networks to go for.
