DURHAM, NC (May 21, 2014) – Truphone, the mobile network operator without country borders, today announced Truphone World, which will give businesses peace of mind as they move across the world’s major business hubs. Truphone customers can now use their mobile devices in 66 countries in exactly the same way as they do at home; with high speed data, high quality calling, and best in class customer service. This move promises to transform the way businesses use mobile phones internationally.
At the core of this group of 66 nations is an area of eight key countries called the Truphone Zone. Here, users can get up to eight international numbers on a single SIM card, so their contacts can reach them on a local number and at local rates, wherever they are in the world.
Truphone World extends the financial benefits of the Truphone Zone to cover an additional 58 countries (66 countries in total). This region accounts for over 70% of all international travel routes – including all of Europe and key business destinations in North America, South America, Asia and Oceania.
Anticipating the increased demand for international data usage that Truphone World will bring, Truphone is also launching a number of substantially bigger and more competitive bundles, increasing the benefit of the only shareable international data plans in the marketplace. The new bundles come with a variety of allowances including the world’s first half a terabyte international plan.
Steve Robertson, Chief Executive Officer of Truphone, said: “Our unique global mobile network connects people across international borders in a way which no one else can match. We bring businesses closer to their international contacts and give them an unparalleled global service experience. Today we’re going a step further to help make our customers more productive in 66 countries.”
“Last year data usage increased five-fold in some places; and the internet has opened up a new dimension to global trade. The urgent need of businesses is there right now, Truphone World will enable businesses to use their mobile devices around the major business centres of the world in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Oceania.”
