This guide is focused on finding the best options for keeping a nomadic household online. We are only interested in data that can be shared with your laptops and other gadgets, not just consumed on a single phone or tablet. Data that is “unlimited” but throttled to super slow speeds isn’t particularly interesting for this comparison either.

Most nomadic households also need a voice line or two as well, so we do factor in voice somewhat into our analysis. But the focus here is on data. Lots and lots of glorious data!
