Yet in 2022, 26% of the global population is still remaining unconnected. Download our latest Rethinking Roaming whitepaper, in partnership with Omdia to learn more about how you can revitalise roaming for a post-lockdown world and reach further than ever before.

How Sponsored Roaming works

Our solution is based on dual IMSI technology.

What is IMSI technology?

An International Mobile Subscriber Identity, or IMSI, is a unique 15-digit number that Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) use to identify individual mobile subscribers. Often confused with an Integrated Circuit Card Identification (ICCID) number, the IMSI only identifies the subscriber, not the Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card itself like the latter. However, both IMSI and ICCID are vital components of a SIM profile.

For instance, the SIM identifies customers with your IMSI in your country of residence and where you have your roaming agreements.

The SIM automatically uses the Vodafone IMSI and identifies your customers as Vodafone customers in destinations where you don't have roaming coverage.
