Blaine, Washington (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Travelers Mobile Travel SIMs are now available on Amazon.com. “We are so excited to be able to offer our SIMs and calling plans on Amazon.com,” said George Slade, Travelers Mobile founder and CEO. “Travelers Mobile is committed to doing our part to help travelers eliminate roaming fees in North America. Having our SIMs and calling plans available on Amazon.com will be a big boost to meeting our goal of eliminating roaming fees and encouraging mobile phone companies to provide a singe world wide calling plan.”
International roaming rates are a subject of concern world wide. In the USA, on September 17, 2013, President Obama, through the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, sent a petition to the Federal Communications Commission, in which it states "Wireless users may ... seek service from local providers more cheaply than from their primary providers." In Canada the CRTC is conducting an investigation of international roaming rates, charged by Canadian carriers. In Europe the European Commission has adopted regulatory proposals which include "Pushing roaming premiums out of the market: a carrot and stick approach to say goodbye to roaming premiums by 2016 or earlier." All over the world, the drive is to eliminate roaming fees.
“While we wait for legislators and regulators to deal with the issue, consumers still need a solution for today," said Kirsten Slade, Travelers Mobile Director of Communications. "The extended reach available through Amazon.com will help travelers everywhere get low cost, local SIMs with prepaid, no contract calling plans.”
Consumers world wide can now purchase local SIMs for their travel destination from the Travelers Mobile page on Amazon.com or by going to the link amazon.travelersmobile.com. More information is available from the Travelers Mobile website.
