- Uros and Vodafone reach an agreement to expand the Goodspeed internet service coverage
- In the first stage, twelve new destinations will be launched and more destinations will follow
Uros, the provider of Goodspeed mobile Wi-Fi, today announces a partnership with Vodafone. This partnership enables a significant expansion in the Goodspeed low cost global internet service. Uros will use Vodafone’s and its roaming partners’ networks to enhance the Goodspeed service footprint.
Twelve new Goodspeed destinations will be launched in July. In Europe Albania, Malta, Romania and Turkey will be added. The new Goodspeed countries in Africa are Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Mozambique, South Africa and Tanzania. At the same time New Zealand will be included in the coverage.
In the first stage, the agreement will bring the total number of low cost business roaming destinations to 77. More destinations will be included in the service as the agreement with Vodafone develops.
Tommi Uhari, CEO of Uros, comments: “With Vodafone contributing to our global footprint, we can be sure our customers can connect confidently wherever they go. We believe this agreement is a great step forward in our mission to remove issues related to international data roaming.”
Goodspeed mobile Wi-Fi service helps companies overcome their mobile connectivity challenges. The service is enabled by the Goodspeed hotspot, which can accommodate up to ten SIM cards, including the user’s own SIMs. The device and destination SIM cards can be purchased from goodspeed.io, and through Goodspeed direct sales channels, including Business Sales and official Goodspeed distributors before travelling. With Goodspeed, international travellers can create a private WLAN network and share the connection with all Wi-Fi-enabled devices, and use data as if at home for a predictable fixed fee.
