OneSimCard Announces Huge Roaming Rate Reductions Throughout Latin America

BOSTON, Sept. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- OneSimCard, a leading global provider of low cost international mobile roaming services for businesses and leisure travelers, announced huge roaming rate reductions for voice calls and internet data throughout Latin America.

Standard Latin American roaming rates offered by the major domestic telecoms carriers are exorbitantly high.  On average, the international roamer in Latin America should expect to pay over $2.50 per minute for both incoming and outgoing voice calls, with some major carriers charging $4.99 per minute. The major carriers also charge extremely high standard internet data rates, often in excess of $19.00 per MB. 

OneSimCard is therefore proud to announce huge reductions in the cost to roam in Latin America. Since September 3, 2014 users of our OneSimCard Plus have enjoyed free incoming calls in many Latin American countries including Argentina, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay.  OneSimCard Plus outgoing call rates in Latin America also offer excellent value with voice calls from many countries costing only $0.49 per minute. OneSimCard Plus has also significantly decreased internet data rates to only $0.85 per MB in many Latin American countries. These OneSimCard rate reductions represent huge savings on the cost of roaming in Latin America.

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. OneSimCard provides international roaming services in over 200 countries and offers free incoming calls in more than 145 countries. OneSimCard is a pre-paid service which does not require any contract and has no connection fees, subscription fees or monthly maintenance fees.

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.
