Mobile LTE SIM device for travel suggestion

Hi guys,

Looking for a hotspot device that will work around the globe where I can just fly into 'a country' and buy a local SIM with data, then connect my devices via Wi-Fi.

Any suggestions please?

Your best bet is going to be a phone.
I've used a bunch of hotspot type devices and most of them are very restrictive in terms of bands.

As for nailing every country in the world? That'll be tough if not impossible.
Figure out where you go most often, and buy based on those bands.

It doesn't have to be expensive. I'm doing the same thing currently (domestically) with a $60 XT1527.

Get a cheap phone + buy a local sim. Or canadian sim with good roaming packages.
