San Diego, CA, May 16, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- XCom Global, Inc., a leading provider of low cost wireless Internet access rental services for international travelers, announced today it is seeking the best “Off the Grid” story from international travelers. These stories, where the lack of an Internet connection caused major strife, can be submitted by visiting this link: http://xcomglobal.com/MyStory/. Everyone who submits an entry will receive a $10 XCom Global electronic gift code that can be used toward a future rental. The story that receives the most votes will win an iPad 2 and 14 days of XCom Global’s Unlimited aXcess plan.
“In today’s world, most have grown accustomed to having 24/7 Internet access,” said Seiji Nishimura, CEO, XCom Global, Inc. “Fueling this is other people’s expectations for us to be connected and to respond quickly, regardless of location and time zone - even when we’re traveling overseas. Lack of a connection can lead to missed opportunities, failed communications, and lower productivity. We’re hoping this contest will help underscore how important it is to stay connected and build awareness of the reliable wireless Internet access solution that we offer.”
Everyone has a story or two to tell about when they went off the grid. Perhaps it’s the important e-mail from a potential client that wasn't seen until the end of the day upon return to a hotel room – a whole day lost and maybe a sale too. Or was it the Facebook post from a significant other that went unanswered a little too long because there wasn’t an Internet connection on the road? How about the sold out exhibit at the museum that could have been booked on-line while en route? Everyone is invited to share their story and vote for their favorites. The winner will be announced on June 20, 2011.
XCom Global’s high-speed Internet access rental service provides international travelers unlimited data usage and the freedom to wirelessly roam abroad at fixed rates starting at $12.95/per day in over 35 selected countries including Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico and the United Kingdom.

Up to five WiFi-enabled devices can use the unit simultaneously allowing the MiFi Hotspot to be shared with traveling companions and saving on multiple usage charges. http://xcomglobal.com/devices/
