DG Mobile is a privately held Icelandic company, with its head office in Kopavogur, Iceland.

The company offers its customers a global roaming solution that presenting most customers with international roaming rates of up to 95% lower than it's competitors.

DG Mobile offers a pre-paid gsm roaming card with a UK based mobile number.

DG Mobile is a subsidiary of the Icelandic company David and Goliath Ltd. which amongst others offers webhosting and web development solutions to a broad array of customers.

The company was founded in 2007, and it's founders have over 10 years of telecommunications experience, both in mobile as well as fixed line communications.

Doesn't really say that much.
The website is not that good. Incoming shows a list of contries that shows fees for incoming, all others are free. Would be nice to have a list of these free countries.

don't read fair use but I can't find any terms.

First impression looks like another website reselling cards, how long will this one be in business ?

I have ordered their sim in January to try it out. The sim never arrived. I got refunded from paypal luckily but I think this operator acted knowingly in bad faith.

Probably as the sim never arrived and no reply by email or phone, they replied only through paypal and got refunded.

Lucky you. Good thing you used paypal for the transaction. There are too many of these companies out there these days and not all of them will survive. The only way to limit ones loss is to use paypal, and to not topup these sim unless it's absolutely neccessary. And if that, to topup with the least amount.
