Say it with us: Hallelujah! It's a problem that BMW European Delivery owners (not to mention gap-year backpackers and generic business travelers) have had for eons, and while the EU seems to have the whole "one currency" thing under control, the lack of a "one data plan" has continued to break the backs of connected travelers. No more. Xcom Global -- the company that revolutionized the art of staying connected abroad -- has just done the same thing for those planning their next Eurotrip. The newly-launched Euro SIM enables US-based jetsetters to rent a single device that'll provide unlimited data access in a staggering 40 nations across the pond. Everywhere from Iceland to San Marino is covered, including 20 extra countries that weren't covered even last week. Folks can pick up a MiFi for $14.95 per day (and yeah, that covers all 40 countries!) or a USB WWAN model for $12.95 a day, and if you happen to scoot over to a locale in Europe that isn't covered, you'll still be able to get online at a cost of one cent per KB. Hit the source link to find out more, and ping your best friend's travel agent to set those long-backburnered plans in motion.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – August 1, 2011 – XCom Global, Inc., a leading provider of low cost wireless Internet access rental services for international travelers, announced today the availability of a Euro SIM card which will enable travelers heading for multiple European destinations to rent a single device.

In addition, 20 more European countries are now covered under the company's Unlimited aXcess plan. Denmark, Finland, Norway, Iceland, Hungary and Portugal are among the destinations that were added.
