When travelling abroad, most people face the issue of exorbitant data roaming service charges for our mobile networks. Korean startup Gadget Korea Co. Ltd has developed a solution that makes data roaming services affordable for world travellers.
Gadget Korea Co., Ltd. is a company that operates the global roaming eSIM USimsa. The eSIM-based overseas data roaming service discounts up to 70% of international data roaming fees. Usimsa’s eSIM can be used by Koreans travelling abroad and travellers visiting Korea without any additional burden of expensive data roaming or changing to a physical SIM card. Usimsa is directly linked with global telecommunication operators and offers affordable data service with good speed and quality.
Usima’s SIM Cards are very simple to use and allow unlimited data to be used immediately by scanning just a QR code. The E-SIM can be opened and data charged in real-time without replacing the SIM after purchase. It can be easily purchased and used immediately in the United States, Canada, and Southeast Asia.
Since Usimsa e-SIM is a virtual SIM, customers can use the roaming service more conveniently, preventing the generation of waste plastic and making it environmentally friendly. In addition, users can freely select data and travel without a predetermined plan. For example, you can use 20GB a day, or you can use 1GB for 30 days. Also, the user can gift or transfer the data to a friend or family member if they travel overseas.
Gadget Korea was founded in 2020 and is based in Incheon. The company founders are avid travellers and wanted to develop a valuable service for travellers. CEO Yoo Sang-hyuk said in a media interview, “I realized the need for the eSIM service when traveling abroad. I was very frustrated that I had to pay unreasonable charges for roaming when there was a more convenient and cheaper way to use roaming. Therefore, we wanted to aim for more convenient roaming service.” Usimsa offers roaming services in 148 countries around the world and has over 5000 paid customers.
