Roaming SIM or Travel SIM for Hotspot With Monthly Charge

Hello Switzerland

I love living in Switzerland because there are so many places in neighbouring countries accessible by bus, train or plane. Weekend trips are great. But the wireless connectivity with a Swiss SIM in Europe is disappointing because of uber-expensive roaming charges.

I have the Orange Me plan with Travel Option. Travel Option saves me costs on calls and SMS but not data. Orange's Travel Data option costs crazy amounts. CHF 150 for 100MB that can be used in any country globally per month. For those thinking it is a good deal and are interested: Orange Travel Data. I on the other hand do not think it is good deal. Regrettably I do use this amount while traveling due to WhatsApp and e-mails with attachments with some stupid "LOL cat".

I am looking for a Europe or World SIM or subscription that would allow me to have 100 MB or more per month of data for cheaper than what Orange is offering.

Please note: I am able to use a dual-sim configuration so having a foreign number for calling or SMS is not necessary.

Thank you for your tips and experiences!

i think practically any non-swiss plan would be better value.
