Uros announces it now provides low-cost mobile data for travellers heading to India with the Goodspeed mobile Internet service.
Currently, the world looks to India’s general election, arguably the world’s biggest democratic exercise. Electioneering focuses on the economy and candidates portrait themselves as pro-business.
India is the 10th largest economy and the second most populous country in the world. With 900 million subscribers, it is also the world’s fastest growing mobile phone market*. Business opportunities have stretched from the traditional economic heartlands of Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore to emerging cities like Nagpur, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Pune, and Jaipur. Major industries include textiles, telecommunications, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, food processing, steel, transport equipment, cement, mining, petroleum, machinery, and software.
“India is a key destination for business travellers who depend on mobile broadband to provide a connection to get things done,” says Tommi Uhari, CEO of Uros. “Adding India to the map, we execute on our strategy of building a truly global network so travellers can enjoy low-cost, transparent internet access wherever they are in the world.”
For just €9.90 a day users can use 500MB of data, twice the daily consumption of the average internet user and the equivalent of 100 emails, 2 hours of web browsing, 20 minutes of video streaming and 30 minutes of Skype calls.
The Goodspeed service is enabled by the Goodspeed hotspot, which can accommodate up to nine destination SIM cards, including the user’s own SIMs. The device and destination SIM cards can be purchased from www.getgoodspeed.com, prior to travelling. With Goodspeed, international travellers can create a private WLAN network and share the connection with up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and smart TVs.
