    Pick whatever carrier is best wherever you frequent most in Australia, then pick up local micro-SIMs wherever else you go.

    Unless Australian carriers offer unusually affordable service when you're abroad, you'll end up overpaying if you stick with one carrier as you travel.

    There are plenty of posts for SIM purchases in various countries, so the forum search function is useful.

    Definitely pick up a local micro-SIM, as the previous poster suggests. You can find recommendations for carriers for most countries on the Forum or - if you let us know the countries you plan to visit - we can usually help.

    If money is no object, then roaming abroad has certain advantages in that you can roam from one network to another. When you purchase a local SIM you are fixed to that network in the country that you visit and are unable to switch to competing networks.

    Carrier in Australia

    A friend referred me to ACN. They use the Optus network. I bought a 1gb mobile broadband for $14 a month. they send you the micro sim via express post. Go to the acnpacific .com.au website and use the ID:7250290300 when ordering. And make sure you put "Micro SIM" in the special instructions box so they send you the right SIM.:ipad-front:
