eMobileRoaming has launched eMobileRoaming World SIM, a service that reduces international roaming charges by up to 80% in over 200 countries and territories. The eMobileRoaming World SIM card, which works in any unlocked GSM handset, is immediately available from eMobileRoaming .

Gary Wels, eMobile’s marketing partner in South Africa, says the international roaming service requires no computers, no WiFi, no subscription, no monthly payments and no long-term contracts.
“eMobileRoaming’s World SIM international roaming service gives subscribers the ability to make and receive calls on hundreds of GSM networks around the world, at deeply discounted prices," he says. "Unlike Voice over IP (VoIP) or VoWiFi services, eMobile provides full GSM mobility, excellent voice quality and the kind of reliability GSM users demand around the world.”
Unlike VoIP services that make calls through a computer or VoWiFi systems that tether the user to an Internet hotspot, eMobileRoaming ’s service is available wherever there is GSM coverage, which provides connectivity around the world and full mobility while making or receiving a call.
There is significant demand for eMobileRoaming ’s low cost World SIM international roaming service, primarily due to the fact that the average South African business traveler spends approximately R7 000 on roaming charges on a five-day international business trip. eMobileRoaming ’s service can cut this cost by at least half, if not more.
eMobile’s service offers international roaming prices that are up to 80% cheaper than roaming prices charges by South African and other international cellular companies. For example, a typical South African cellular provider’s roaming price for a UK to South Africa call is $3.20 (about R23.50) per minute. eMobile’s price is $0.61 (about R4.48) per minute, a saving of more than 80%. eMobile’s incoming call charges are up to 80% less compared to standard roaming rates offered by South African operators. eMobile also offers free incoming SMSs in all countries.
Wels notes that the roaming solution is the first of several low-cost telephony services that eMobileRoaming plans to provide to customers throughout Africa.
"The rapid increase of international business travel originating and terminating in Africa makes eMobileRoaming World SIM the ideal roaming solution. Not only has travel increased between African countries, there is a remarkable increase in international travel to and from the African continent to other destinations.
“eMobileRoaming World SIM, an easy-to-use prepaid format with no hidden costs, is an International SIM card allowing consumers to save between 25% and 80%, depending on the call destination. With eMobileRoaming World SIM there are no contracts, no monthly fees and no connection fees. Buy airtime before you travel and use our convenient auto-recharge option to ensure you never run out,” he explains.
Wels says the pre-paid format, which significantly reduces the risk of fraud and misuse, allows both corporate and individual customers to be in control of their roaming spend at all times.
“Account balances are easily retrieved via SMS. Once you receive your SIM card, installation and setup is simple. The eMobileRoaming World SIM card works in any unlocked GSM handset, which enables the customer to make and receive low-cost calls in over 200 countries.”
