The (mighty) Roaming SIMPosted: April 26, 2017
Roaming specialist execMobile sees demand for an old fashioned SIM, but it needs to provide multi network coverage.
Johannesburg, South Africa (Feb, 2017)
execMobile, the leading provider of connectivity solutions for business travellers today announced enhanced low-cost solutions for leisure travellers. The company’s PocketWifi is used by many corporate travellers to remain connected and mobile, but leisure travellers need solutions that suit different travel patterns and user behaviour.
“Poor quality hotel or coffee shop Wi-Fi simply cannot meet the needs of travellers who use Google Maps or Uber when abroad”, says founder and MD of execMobile, Craig Lowe. “Leisure travellers need data with mobility, lengthy validity, and even enhanced features, such as multi-network coverage as offered by our Smart SIM.”
“Some travellers are now even more savvy, and simply want a SIM”, Lowe notes. “We agree; if it is used in a tablet or wireless router that can tether multiple devices, but it makes no sense putting it in a phone that then needs to be reconfigured. WhatsApp and other OTT apps on phones provide the calling and messaging services traveller’s demand, provided mobile data is available”.
execMobile has been providing roaming alternatives for outbound South African travellers since 2010. The company continues to work with partners abroad to reduce the cost of mobile data. Its innovative “activate on arrival” Value SIM (from 8c/MB) removes complexity in all 43 countries, ensuring travellers arrive connected, albeit dependent on one operator’s coverage. The new Smart SIM offers savvy travellers better multi-network coverage and reduced pricing, with an online account to monitor and manage connectivity from only 25c/MB.
Lowe continues, “Our 2016 corporate customers’ data usage analysis again indicated that the average usage was only 47MB per device per day. Our PocketWifi delivers this connectivity from only R59/day. Leisure travellers need more data valid for their entire holiday period, something our SIM Only or PocketWifi options now offer.”
execMobile will shortly have a presence at all major international airports in South Africa to enable travellers access to the solutions prior to travel.
