About our technology.

Let us tell you about YRoam, the technology behind us and what we can do for you!

How does it work? < Click here to check out our YouTube channel

  1. Once the 4G roaming Wi-Fi device is powered ON, it detects all available networks within its coverage area.
  2. A dial-up VPN connection between the device and the SaaS (Software as a Service) platform is established using the Embedded SIM (SEED SIM) in the device.
  3. Successful authentication of user credentials by SaaS platform triggers the device to search and populate a public list of available mobile networks and provisions a SIM remotely.
  4.  The device selects and connects to the optimal network. It periodically scans available networks and switches automatically to ensure the user is constantly connected.
  5.  Using the same VPN connection, YRoam Customer credentials (“user credentials”) are authenticated by SaaS.Services will now be activated and users can connect up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices to their YRoam device.

Why YRoam?


Our Strategic Partners;



From the FT to the Inquirer

Proud to reveal some feature posts, reviews and articles about YRoam. Have a read and see what you think, if you still not convinced, try it out for yourself!


Financial times says

“Roam far without breaking the bank”

“… Here’s an attractive less fussy variant from Hong Kong company UCloudlink that may give you equally robust coverage at a better and complicated rate, as well as including a gadget-charging power bank… ”


the Inquirer says

“How to get free and cheap roaming anywhere in the world”


“Roaming charges are one of the banes of the lives of travellers and we’ve seen countless horror stories of less-than-savvy holiday goers facing thousands of pounds in charges on their return to Blighty. So how do you avoid them? Well, the answer is, lot of ways…. Y-Roam”

“Y-Roam dispenses with SIM cards altogether, instead opting for a rather chunky but Android-powered virtual SIM affair, something we don’t see very often in the UK. With network partners in over 100 countries, Y-Roam offers plans based on countries of usage… The box is £199 but that does include the first gig of worldwide data and the touchscreen device can accept two additional physical SIMs on top of the virtual one and has a 6000mAh battery which can be used to charge your devices, thanks to a full-size USB port.”


Cambridge News says

“Frequent traveller? This might be for you…. Y-Roam offers a cheaper alternative to roaming costs by providing users with a portable wi-fi hotspot for up to five devices, without the need of a local SIM card”

V3 says

“Everything for the day data traveller”


Linkis says

“YRoam works in more than 100 countries  and can connect up to five devices simultaneously with a range of up to 10 metres. The YRoam YR4 has a built in 6000 mAh power bank, with a battery that lasts for up to 15 hours. This provides the extra convenience of charging your smartphone or tablet on the go.  The YR4 is fully charged in 7.5 hour and lasts for up to 30 hours when in standby mode.”

“YRoam uses Cloud SIM technology to locate local networks that offer the most affordable rates 0 giving users a portable WiFi connection at a fraction of the cost that would otherwise be spent on data roaming. YRoam is not locked down to a specific network- the user can therefor benefit from the optimum connection available without paying premium rates.”


COMMS dealer says

“Merseyside and Guernsey based YRoam has launched in the UK aiming to cut the cost of roaming for mobile users in more than 100 countries. The first product to come to marklet is the YR4, a portable device that connects to local 3G and 4G to create a secure personal Wi-Fi hotspot. ”


JM comms says


“YRoam makes data roaming simple, fast and free of commitment- Even in the UK”


“Without a doubt, data roaming will be in Europe this year, but venture beyond the EU (that we;re trying to leave anyway) and things can be rather complicated. And by complicated, i mean expensive. Let;s face it, in most cases data roaming totally sucks.  Even on tariffs that already include roaming in Europe, there are often questions to be ask…

All if this is where YRoam hopes to have come up with an affordable and flexible solution that ticks all the right boxes”

“YRoam offers a simple, contract-free, solution that could be a perfect alternative. It also has some additional features so it may not get shoved in a drawer until the next foreign trip looms.”
