Comments on: Global Internet Access for Palms

MaGlobe, which offers a global Internet access service for travelers, has released AutoDialer for PalmOS. It allows users to automatically access the Web from over 5 thousand locations worldwide. For example, instead of being in Europe and forced to dial over the Atlantic to access an ISP, MaGlobe allows the user to dial into a local access number. MaGlobe only needs to hear a dial tone and the software will autodial the local number for the city the traveler is in.

Other Global Access Providers

AT&T Global Interet Access (formerly IBM Global) also provides worldwide internet access starting at just $6.

They offer 1-800 access and global roaming, but there are surcharges for using a number outside of your "base" country.

They give you a dialer application for your Palm with ALL the phone numbers, and you receive regular updates with new phone numbers.

Here is a listing of service plans

UUnet also has a global roaming service
with a wider selection of access points:

though I don't know if they have explicit
Palm support, it should work if manually
configured - and their rates are a bit more

Regarding the AT&T Global Interet Access URL. It only offers to sign me up and then only with an Offer Code.

The most endearing feature abount MaGlobe is that it is a Prepaid service, without any annual commitments, monthly fees or undisclosed surcharges.

Besides, it seems to be only one that offers instant online activation, realtime online accounts status and auto-renewal.

Nobody appears to have mentioned the
I Pass service which offers approximately
11,000 POP numbers worldwide.

And does it offer a Palm based dialer?

iPass does not have a service for individual users, you have to approach an ISP or one of their agents, who take their own sweet time for activation of the account. It is not a flexible service and is aimed only for the super large corporate users.
