Truphone recently lowered the rates of its global roaming SIM card, and they were lowered so quietly, they nearly passed us by without notice.
Fortunately, one of our readers did notice and tipped us on the rate change. We needed a little more to go by so we took to Twitter to try and get this rate drop confirmed ourselves. Apparently, Truphone has indeed lowered its rates “slightly”, and we’ve been able to confirm the drop has gone into effect for United States customers, bringing US roamers just a little closer to the lower rates enjoyed by their European neighbors that went into effect July 1.
@trutower Good eye. The rates have been reduced slightly so you can now enjoy even cheaper roaming!

We haven’t yet noticed rate changes for other countries around the world, but if you do happen to notice rate reductions anywhere else, be sure to let us know in the comments!
Thanks David Levy for the tip!
