OneSimCard Assists Stranded Travelers by Slashing eSIM Prices

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, March 20, 2020 / EINPresswire.com

In Response to the Global COVID-19 Virus Pandemic & the Vast Numbers of Stranded Travelers, OneSimCard Cuts the Cost of eSIMs for Global Roaming by 50%

In an effort to assist the thousands of stranded travelers OneSimCard, Inc. today announced they are slashing the cost of eSIM cards by 50% through April 30, 2020. Because the eSIM is available for immediate download & there is no need to ship a physical SIM, displaced travelers can easily stay in touch with loved ones back home without having to wait for shipping or having to go to a store to purchase a physical SIM; the entire transaction can be accomplished from the safety of one’s hotel room. The eSIM is initially available on compatible devices such as iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, XS, XS Max, and XR, and the Google Pixel 3a, 4 and 4 XL. Full details available here: onesimcard.com/esim. Promo Code for 50% discount is "ESIM50".

OneSimCard eSIM provides Data, Voice and SMS connectivity in over 160 countries. The OneSimCard eSIM has the advantage of accessing multiple networks in many countries for a more reliable mobile connection. eSIM service can be used either as pay-as-you-go or with optional discount data plans for high volume users. OneSimCard also offers the option of additional local phone numbers in over 60 countries. Customers will also have the ability to use their smartphone as a hotspot enabling multiple devices to enjoy 4G speeds (where available) at no additional charge. Additionally, customers will still be able to use the OneSim VOIP App, available on Google Play and the Apple App Store, for access to OneSimCard’s highly discounted VOIP voice and SMS service.

eSIM, or Embedded SIM, is the latest disruption in the mobile connectivity industry for consumer devices and represents a shift from the traditional physical SIM on which most GSM compatible devices depend for connectivity. eSIM technology is expected to fully replace the physical SIM card in mobile devices in the not-too-distant future because eSIM has many benefits. Consumers will save shipping costs and delivery time by simply downloading the eSIM using a QR code. They can easily switch between providers before, and after, travelling without needing to replace the plastic SIM, & they can now have several profiles on their device (e.g. one for work and one for personal use) –turning their device into a dual SIM phone.

“As a leader in the global roaming market, we felt obligated to the vast number of stranded travelers across the world, and our department heads brainstormed how we can play a part in helping these travelers stay in touch with their loved ones back home,” said OneSimCard CEO Alex Filippov. He added, “We are very concerned about the safety of all the citizens of the world and if we can help families stay in touch while family members are displaced abroad, we are willing to do our part.”

OneSimCard Data & Roam Offers International Travelers Low Internet Data Rates Worldwide

BOSTON, Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- OneSimCard, a leading global provider of low cost international mobile roaming services for businesses and leisure travelers, announced that the new OneSimCard Data & Roam is now available for purchase on the OneSimCard website and through retail channels.

The OneSimCard Data & Roam provides internet data connectivity in over 160 countries worldwide at very low rates starting at $0.10 per MB. Similar to the OneSimCard Plus, the OneSimCard Data & Roam is a pre-paid service which does not require any contract and has no connection fees, subscription fees or monthly maintenance fees. The customer is only charged for the services used.

The OneSimCard Data & Roam allows users to comfortably use international data services when traveling abroad. The last few years have seen enormous growth in the usage of smartphones and internet enabled mobile devices, but recent data shows that close to 70% of Global Roamers still turn off their data services when traveling internationally. The main reason for turning off international data service is the fear of a huge roaming bill. The OneSimCard Data & Roam removes that fear by both providing low internet data rates and a prepaid real time billing platform that will allow users to immediately monitor their international data costs.

OneSimCard works worldwide in unlocked GSM devices and phones. The user simply replaces their domestic carriers' SIM card with OneSimCard when traveling internationally. All users can replace their own SIM cards in just a few seconds. Once the OneSimCard is in use, travelers avoid the high international roaming charges they incur when using their regular carriers' services abroad. On average, OneSimCard customers enjoy a savings of about 85% when using OneSimCard mobile services internationally as compared to standard international roaming fees.

In addition to great internet data rates the OneSimCard Data & Roam also offers text messaging and voice services in some select countries and OneSimCard's best voice rates in Canada and Brazil.
