Sponsored Roaming: Instant global roaming connectivity
What if you could offer truly global roaming connectivity?
Imagine if you could offer your customers voice and data connectivity in virtually any country across the world. And imagine you could provide a roaming experience that beats your competitors' roaming offers and attracts the high value customers.
Building a competitive footprint takes many years though!
It’s not only a long but also expensive process. It takes you 9 - 12 months to launch roaming with just one partner network … Not to talk about launching in, let's say 150 countries with 2 partners each – and managing all aspects of those relationships on a day to day basis!
Use Vodafone's global roaming footprint to get voice, text, and data connectivity in virtually any country
With Vodafone Sponsored Roaming, you could get the world in three months
It’s easy for you
Our solution is based on the so-called Dual IMSI technology. Your own customer identifier (IMSI) is used in your home country and where you have own roaming agreements. In destinations where you don't have coverage, the SIM automatically uses the Vodafone IMSI and identifies your roamers as Vodafone customers.
And it’s easy for your customers
Usually, there is no SIM card swap or giving out a new phone number. They don’t even notice they are using a sponsored network!
“Our leadership in worldwide connectivity and coverage is supported through our long-term partnership with VRS, which helps us to bring new solutions to market. Telecom26 is delighted to have enabled eSIM solutions for our customers, benefitting our whole community and accelerating the long-term shift towards eUICC.” - Nicola Berardocco, CEO of Telecom26
“It’s a pleasure to work with the Vodafone team that shares and maintains the same motivations for winning IOT business within a complex global arena. Their service and support are unwavering, and our business relationship remains a trusted partnership.” - VP of Marketing, leading global software company.
