About us

Cellular Abroad was founded in 2001 in Los Angeles, CA by Sebastian Harrison. As a frequent traveler, Sebastian needed to find a way to stay connected while traveling internationally. This was years before carriers such as Verizon and AT&T offered international roaming and before T-Mobile was even available in the US. Starting with a handful unlocked phones for overseas use and just a few SIM cards from popular destinations such as Italy, France and the UK, within 5 years his business expanded to over 20 employees and a licensee partnership with National Geographic and soon after with Travelocity. These partnerships are important accomplishments as they are testament to the quality of Cellular Abroad’s products and services and commitment to excellence, value and integrity.

With over 320,000 satisfied customers, our mission has never changed, “Cellular Abroad provides affordable international cellular service for the traveler that US carriers cannot offer and with transparent pricing.”

Whether you are traveling for business, pleasure, to study or moving abroad, we are constantly striving to stay on top of what is relevant for your personal requirements in order to make your international communication needs as effective and affordable as possible.

Here are just a few of the articles where Cellular Abroad has been mentioned throughout the years.
