    Buying Data for Russia? 12th Jan 18 at 6:47 PM
    My son will be working in Moscow for 5 months later this year - his phone is with EE

    He can call using WhatsApp and FaceTime and will no doubt have free use of data at work and at his hotel.
    If he wants to use roaming data however for google maps etc can anyone recommend the most efficient way - perhaps buying a Russian SIM card - and if so which one?
    Any help appreciated

    A local SIM will be the best option, have a read here:
