Mobile Roaming in Africa

This is a topic that never makes to mainstream conversations as not all of us roam every time, but once in a while you will be caught roaming and thus need a solution that works best. When roaming in Africa, what options do you have in each country? I see @ndeti here has an idea about roaming for Kenyans in Somalia.

What other roaming options would you recommend?

I wonder how this topic doesn’t have contribs. I guess buying a sim from the local dominant is the only sane option for your pocket …

I was in a such a situation couple of days ago in Tz but with such speeds on WIFI and it being a holiday season my urge dropped off …

Airtel is King. Especially for Roaming in Africa. Even outside Africa their rates are better than Safaricon too…

Of course buying a local sim card is the cheapest option
