I've used Truphone for years, mostly as a travel SIM, but also in situations where my AT&T SIM doesn't work. Calls work well enough. The data is kinda expensive for anything other than occasional use. Up until very recently, phones would only connect with 3G, though I've started seeing my iPhone pick up LTE signal.

truphone works, but not well, and even worse with smartphones. for RECEIVING calls, you need to turn on call screening, and be able to answer the phone quickly to press 1. this is where a GSM flip phone is useful. The time required on either my android or iphone 4s is just not realistic. to PLACE calls it works great, as long as you have a wifi connection and laptop....

The option I used on a recent trip was using Truphone's eSIM for the iPhone XS. Alternatively, I use a local SIM. It's not ideal, and it pains me to say so - but the economics clearly aren't there.I'm entirely guessing that Google leveraged their buying power with the carriers (who also often own interconnect companies) to get substantial concessions on roaming rates.
