And is it really something for you? In this article you will get the information you want. The beste sim only deals have a lot of use in this area and ESIM can play a pretty big role in this.
What exactly is eSIM?
eSIM stands for embedded SIM and is therefore a built-in SIM card. This digital SIM card is already in your phone. So you don’t have to put a physical SIM card in your phone anymore. Your new provider activates a new mobile phone subscription without sending you a new SIM card by post. Your provider will then give you a QR-code with which you can download an eSIM profile on your phone.
Can I also use eSIM?
eSIM has existed in the world for some time now, but until recently not in the Netherlands. Dutch providers like KPN, Vodafone, Youfone, Simpel, hollandsnieuwe, Simyo, Robin Mobile, Lebara, Tele2 don’t have this possibility yet. T-Mobile has recently become the first provider to offer regular and eSIM Only subscriptions with eSIM.
