-- Roamers from China, UK, Argentina and Israel can avoid high costs and usage fees
RA'ANANA, Israel, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Simgo, global provider of the world's first commercially available virtual SIM card platform for smartphones, today announced that roamers from 4 more countries have access to the Simgo service. In partnership with local distributors, the service allows roamers continued use of all of their usual cellular services while abroad, without incurring high costs and usage fees.
Local distributors work closely with Simgo to provide a fully-featured roaming service for outbound travellers and benefit from a unique business model generating recurring revenue. Accessing their own network of resellers, or tapping into Simgo's network, local distributors have expanded reach to corporate and business customers.
With Simgo's unique service, users simply attach a virtual SIM-enabled cover to their smartphone. This allows them to use high speed data services, enjoy toll quality telephony and retain their own mobile number for outgoing and incoming calls. Simgo's roaming service operates in both 3G and 4G networks and the Simgo cover currently supports Samsung Galaxy S2/S3/S4 and iPhone 4/4S/5/5S handsets.
"Local distributors play a central role in expanding the Simgo service around the world and enjoy new revenue streams in the process," said Eyal Shmueli, Business partner manager of Simgo. "We welcome our newest local distributors that add another 4 countries to our ever growing list of countries where the Simgo roaming service is available."
Simgo is currently looking to expand its distribution network with MVNOs, local distributors and resellers of roaming solutions.
