Evolution of travel
Travel has evolved immensely throughout human history. From pilgrimages on foot, all the way to high-speed trains, luxury cruises and aeroplanes. Another notable aspect of travel that has also evolved with the times is communication. In the not so distant past, in the 1950s before the commercialization of aircraft services, the fastest method of international travel was by boat. Friends, parents and children alike could go for months without hearing from their loved ones. Left only to wonder if they were ok.
Data Roaming, Higher Convenience vs Lower Cost
Currently, there are 3.5 billion people with smartphones, accounting for 45.12% of the world’s population. That is almost half of the human population with access to communication services, allowing them connectivity internationally. The problem here lies with the telecoms. Everyone knows how much of a necessity staying connected is, and the telecoms have designed pricing strategies for their data roaming services to be exuberant. They are taking advantage of people’s need to stay connected. Data roaming services may look unaffordable to consumers seeking to save money while travelling.
Travellers looking to save money on a staying connected abroad have become accustomed to purchasing disposable travel sim cards from telecoms at their travel destinations. Allowing them to remain connected while reducing money spent on staying connected. However, it gets slightly less convenient when travelling to more than one destination. It would require the traveller to purchase a new sim card for each country visited physically.

Safe travel with eSIM

If your phone were to be lost or stolen, the person that took it could remove a sim card to sever the connection between you and your phone.

Traditional sim cards have this core weakness which is that because they are physical, someone could remove it from your phone to steal your private information. With an eSIM, it is digital, so removing it is physically impossible.
Not just physical security, eSIM is also improving cybersecurity. The GSMA implemented a safety feature called “Subscription Management Data Protection” (SM-DP+). It ensures that hackers cannot upload a new profile to your phone and hijack your information. When a device submits a request to download a new profile, a unique code is verified by a third party for approval and confirmed by the operator to download a new profile.
