WorldSIM to launch dual SIM card – UK

WorldSIM, a global roaming MVNO, has announced plans to launch its new dual IMSI UK-US SIM card at the CTIA Wireless 09 event being held in Las Vegas this week. The new SIM card will feature both a UK and a US mobile number attached to it. This will provide WorldSIM customers free roaming in the US as well as more than 55 other countries where the company already provides free roaming service.

Additionally, call charges from the US (both local and international) will be reduced to the level of European calling charges, thereby bringing the US and the UK on the same platform in terms of making and receiving calls.

The SIM card will be data ready and will offer various features, such as real-time itemised billing, call forwarding, call recording and other existing WorldSIM facilities. Commenting on the new launch, Arif Reza, Director at WorldSIM, said: “Our UK-US SIM will revolutionise how people keep in touch when they travel on both sides of the Atlantic - no longer needing 2 SIM cards. We are especially excited to be launching this SIM at CTIA, Las Vegas next month. Being in the US it will truly enable us to showcase the SIM's dual UK-US functionality and capability."

The new SIM has already attracted huge interest and pre-orders from existing distributors and customers. Several mobile operators from around the world have also expressed their interest in the SIM with the view of pairing their own country mobile numbers with the new dual IMSI SIM.
