Globalgig announced new global mobile data plans just a couple of days ago. These plans start from just 2p/MB and mark the biggest expansion of the company’s network to date under their “1 plan, 1 price, 36 countries” moniker.
According to a press release sent to TruTower, consumers can choose how much data they want, for how long they want it without a long-term commitment, and are covered in all Globalgig countries they happen to visit.
Globalgig also announces the launch of its brand new SIM only service for tablets and 3G devices. Like the Globalgig Wi-Fi device, the company’s SIM-only service operates in 36 countries.
Globalgig will now operate in: UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, Republic of Ireland, Hong Kong, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Turkey, Slovakia and Slovenia.
Globalgig’s connectivity from country to country allows travelers to stay switched on for 2p per MB (from £20 per month for 1GB). In addition, plans up to 5GB are offered for those who travel regularly or use large amounts of data. Overalll, this can greatly reduce international roaming costs when compared to plans offered by national carriers.
The roaming hotspot device connects up to 5 Wi-Fi-compatible devices simultaneously — whether they be mobile phone, laptop, gaming systems, or tablets — and the new SIM only option for tablets or 3G devices allows customers to have their own personal hotspot.
“For the first time, customers DON’T need to change their behaviour when they travel,” says Nigel Bramwell, Chief Executive Officer at Voiamo, the company behind Globalgig. “They DON’T need to turn their tablets or laptops into dumb, unconnected machines, useful only as drinks trays. With our new plans and much expanded network, geographical borders no longer matter for mobile data plans.”
