4 Ways to Eliminate Outrageous Data Fees


Author: Zane Claes

For years, I’ve had the dream of being able to work from anywhere in the world and move about as I pleased.  This summer I was poised to make the transition into this lifestyle, but there was just one small catch: I need internet.  As a software engineer, as long as I have my laptop and I can keep in touch with my clients and submit projects on regular intervals, it does not matter where I am.  Almost ready to board a plane to Europe and start exploring, I suddenly became aware what a ridiculous hassle an internet connection becomes when not residing in one’s own country.  In the end, I found four different solutions.
