With high costs and the hassle of existing voice and data roaming solutions, Interfone‘s SIM sticker offers a convenient and affordable alternative to both business and leisure travellers. To help revolutionise your voice and data usage overseas in the near future, Interfone aims to raise USD $25,000 on Indiegogo to fund their idea. With your support financially through crowdfunding, you can potentially change the way travellers communicate through voice and data around the world.
How It Works
Typically, when overseas, travellers tend to restrict their usage of phone calls and mobile data to avoid exorbitant phone bills. Other troublesome alternatives include getting a local prepaid SIM for each country (without number retention) or renting an overseas wifi router.
Using innovative SIM technology, the Interfone SIM sticker is less than 0.5 millimeters thick and is attached to the back of a local operator SIM Card in a one-time application. Travellers can enjoy high quality and cost-effective voice and data services while retaining their number, without ever having to buy a local SIM card at their destination. All you need is a convenient one time installation of the Interfone SIM sticker as shown below.
“As a frequent business traveller myself, I needed a convenient and affordable method to communicate with global colleagues and clients while travelling. Buying local SIM cards in every country was not ideal,” says Erik Rasmussen, CEO of Interfone. “We are proud to offer our pioneering chip technology – the Interfone SIM sticker, which will be your solution to hassle-free roaming.”
