Transatel DataSIM's global connectivity solution is now covering the vast land of Russia, making it the 48th country under Transatel DataSIM's network. Comprised of 85 "federal subjects"[1], Russia's territories create obstacles for travelers toobtain a SIM card and understand the complex pricing. Transatel DataSIM's innovative technology allows travelers to overpass the hassle of swapping multiple SIM cards and paying different rates. Travelers will profit with one SIM card for all of Russia as they connect to the internet via Tele2 Russia's network at just 0.02€/MB[2] . Other countries covered in this region include Estonia, Lithuania, and Finland. With the same SIM card from Transatel DataSIM, travelers are set free to wander and explore any country within coverage and benefit from paying local rates.
