|Cell Phone Rental for Asia
Cell phone reception and coverage in Asia is generally excellent in most heavily-populated areas and often superior to the US. Asia has some of the most densely-populated cities in the world and these cities are filled with cell phone users. Due to aggressive pricing and the convenience of zero setup, cell phone use and proliferation far exceeds that of the United States. There are several countries in Asia where a majority of the population have cell phones. Many Asians rely exclusively on cellular phones and do not even have landlines at home. This is possible since the cellular system that they use, called GSM, is reliable and the coverage is widespread. (Japan and South Korea don't use GSM.) Cellular Abroad taps into several different cell phone carriers in Asia and offers both country-specific and international SIM card solutions for asia cell phone rentals. Cellular Abroad offers both cell phone rentals for Asia as well as cell phone sales for Asia which are particularly convenient for the traveler who will travel to Asia at least once a year.
