Skyroam, a global Wi-Fi provider, has launched airport vending machines in collaboration with automated retailer ZoomSystems, according to a press release. Travelers can now rent Skyroam’s pocket-sized global hotspot with unlimited internet service in 100-plus countries at "grab-and-go global Wi-Fi” vending kiosks throughout the United States.
Skyroam users have the freedom to stay connected without dealing with issues like roaming charges, unlocking phones, unsecure public Wi-Fi, or hunting for local SIMs.
Skyroam’s patented virtual SIM technology seamlessly connects to local carriers in more than 100 countries for unlimited daily usage, offering the convenience of a Wi-Fi connection that is shareable on up to five devices simultaneously.
The first vending machines are now available at San Francisco International Airport (SFO, Boarding area G, near Gate 91), with three more vending machines coming later this month to Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS, Terminal 3, International boarding area E, near Gate 3), and Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH, Terminal D, International boarding area D, near Gate D9 and Terminal D/E Connector).
A traveler can rent a Skyroam global hotspot for only $9.95 per day, and mail it back upon return home in the provided prepaid envelope.
