 +====SIM Cards====
 +===Great Britain===
 +Updated 9/16/2019
  
 +From [[https://toomanyadapters.com/buying-sim-card-united-kingdom/]] April 2019\\
 +Four operators: O2 (GiffGaff), EE (was Orange; is also Lycamobile, Lebara), Three, Vodafone (VOXI)
 +
 +Best network: EE, then O2 and Vodafone.  Three has least coverage. 
 +He recommends EE for most travelers as it has better network outside major cities.\\ 
 +You can buy in airport but you'll have more choices and spend less money if you wait.  Easy to find SIM card stores in central London; they'll discuss package options and install and activate the SIM in about 2 minutes.  No need to show passport or other ID; you get a SMS notification confirming all is well and then it works straightaway.
