When the time comes to leave the family home for study, a great adventure ensues but the budget of the majority of students is limited. It’s difficult to budget everything from fees and food to nights out and of course don’t forget a good reliable mobile phone! Being well-connected is imperative for any student of today, both for studies, and for establishing relationships with fellow students, work colleagues or keeping you connected with the folks back home.
Go Sim-Free and Save Money
Thanks to WiFi technology, it is possible to share the same Internet connection as others in your building. Yes, you may have to come to an agreement but this can help you save a bit of money. The most useful way to do so is by just asking in the building.
If the signal does not arrive with enough force beyond the floor, you can always turn to an access point and thus help the Internet connection to be better deal for all involved.
With so many free WiFi points in the city and in colleges you may only need a talk-text tariff for your prepay phone which costs around 20 to 25 euro per month depending on provider and gives you calls and text for 30 days. SIM free is exactly that, the freedom to do what you want when you want and not signed up to a 24 month contract.
In the long run once you pay for your device you own it. It is not like the micropayments that you get with a bill phone. While you can always upgrade to a bill phone, this method works out a lot cheaper for you in the long run.
