Large Bank Chooses Telecom26’s eSIMs and Global Mobile Connectivity Service

15 May 2023

Telecom26 provides global connectivity and maritime connectivity using our physical and eSIMs to organisations of all sizes and across all vertical sectors.  Financial services companies with employees who travel frequently is a particular growth sector for us.

Our global connectivity and eSIMs teams have prepared a new case study about how we are helping a global bank to reduce the cost of its mobile phones which you can download here.

In a nutshell, hundreds of the bank’s employees travel regularly to meet clients and visit the bank’s offices spread across 90 countries. Their connectivity for remote data access was previously provided through MiFi devices and the data roaming offering of two MNOs in the bank’s home country.

Unfortunately, this approach created a number of problems including high roaming charges, limited network coverage, and slow data down/uploads. It was also impossible to change SIM profiles so that usage, and costs, could be controlled.

And so, the bank conducted a detailed analysis of the connectivity options available from across the industry including Tier 1 global MNOs and small satellite providers.

One solution offered by many of the companies that tendered for the contract was for employees to buy local SIMs to provide device connectivity. Unfortunately, this limits a device to one or two MNOs in each country - and adds juggling multiple SIMs across devices to find the strongest local network to a long list of challenges. Having multiple mobile contracts and service plans is also more expensive.

After an extensive evaluation of its options, the bank chose Telecom26 as its global connectivity provider with coverage being provided through Telecom26’s eSIMs.

Telecom26 eSIMs

  • Offer all the functions of a physical SIM
  • Are very easy to download onto a phone, mifi or router
  • Seamlessly switch between multiple networks both in-country and across borders
  • Complement any existing SIM subscription to the service of a home mobile operator; users simply switch to the Telecom26 eSIM profile when they are roaming
  • Can be set up to identify network priorities; for example, for organisations and people that are more price sensitive

Telecom26’s eSIMs deliver measurable results

Hundreds of the bank’s employees have now installed Telecom26’s global eSIMs profiles onto their Apple and Android devices and are receiving an always-on, high quality data service which they can use to create personal hotspots. They no longer need to worry about patchy coverage, switching SIM cards to find a stronger network, using multiple devices or finding a wifi hotspot. The bank’s employees can continue to use the service of their home operator and switch to Telecom26’s service when they are roaming.

There is no porting, no migration, and no disruption to the services they already have. They simply switch profiles when roaming. For the bank, bill shock from excessive roaming charges has been eliminated. A single price has been agreed to cover all data usage and the bank now has one point of contact and one set of SLAs for its global connectivity. All transactions are detailed and provided on a single bill. We have also eliminated the need to physically send out SIM cards which has also saved time and costs.
