Digital nomad solution #1:
Staying in touch with crappy wifi
In a recent video, I talked about the challenges of being a digital nomad. The first was about spotty wifi and staying in touch with your family. In this video, I’d like to offer some solutions. Read on or listen below...
So getting around crappy Wi-Fi when you’re traveling around the world. I have a few suggestions for this. I have a resource that I like and use that compares prepaid data SIM cards that you can use from your phone or pair with your computer. This resource compares different service providers on characteristics like coverage or amount of data.
Another thing that you can do is remember that if you visit restaurants or Starbucks, they often have Wi-Fi if you buy a cup of coffee, so that’s a way you can get around that too.
Another thing you can do before you even leave home is check out service providers that have good plans for traveling. Canada’s not so great for this to be honest, but I know that England has some good “roam away from home” type plans.
And finally when it comes to staying in touch with your friends and family, why not lean into being a bit old school and send a postcard? Finding a mailbox isn’t always super easy, but your Airbnb host or someone at the hotel or hostel will probably know where you could do that.
So that’s it for today. Challenge #1 complete!
