This should come as welcome news for subscribers of AT&T (check out our 2017 review of the carrier) who are planning to go abroad during the upcoming holidays -- the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States has decided to update its Passport international data roaming packages.

Always Online Wireless (AOW) is a service provider that specializes in offering on demand LTE data plans, and just recently, the company has decided to launch a new AOW Global Data SIM card.

AT&T has no shortage of international roaming plans. But for its subscribers who frequently travel to other countries, they have plenty of reason to want a little more than what the major US wireless carrier is currently offering. Indeed, the Passport international rate plans that the company had announced more than a couple of years ago do offer some data, but unfortunately for travelers, it is not very much, even at the highest tier option. Some are even saying that it is cheaper to just unlock one’s device and make full use of a SIM card (with travel happy inclusions) instead.
