I’ve used XCom Global for over 5 years now for all my international MiFi (hotspot) rentals. They now offer LTE (High Speed Data) in over 40 countries which is a huge improvement over the previous 3G speeds. Their pricing has dropped from $14.95/day when I reviewed it in 2014 to...

Remembering 9/11

Today marks the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks here in the US. It is a day all Americans will never forget. I still vividly remember that day and watching the TV in disbelief while getting phone calls from family on the East Coast. I visited the 9/11 Memorial Museum this past February...
