Telecom26 makes life easier for business travellers who need fast and cost-effective connectivity with Enterprise Data Extra

26 April 2024

Using your local carrier may make sense if you’re only travelling to a neighbouring country. But if you are going further afield, chances are, your home operator won’t have the best rates. Never forget that roaming is a cash cow for traditional operators…

So, if you are in Australia, Hong Kong, the US or Europe etc and travelling abroad, your company may be paying much more than it should to keep you connected.  Plus who needs the worry of whether a domestic carrier will have a roaming agreement in place in every country to provide network coverage and speedy down and uploads whilst abroad?

Likewise, buying a local prepaid SIM card seems like a good idea if you can face the queues at the airport. But really this is only convenient for when you’re visiting one country. Users need to be alert when visiting areas that are close to country borders as it’s easy for phones to jump to other networks not aligned with the prepaid operator’s packages.  

Other drawbacks are that most large local carriers charge more, cover less, and don’t remember your name when you call. Worse, Travel and Tourist SIM card offerings rarely give you portal access for enterprise-wide control and transparency into your organisation’s usage, billing, and services.

Perhaps you, your manager and CFO see high phone bills as a cost of doing business. But it’s certainly an unnecessary expense!

Enterprise Data Extra, developed specifically for business travellers 

Earlier this month we announced that the team at global financial services company Ocorian is now using our Enterprise Data Extra global connectivity service when they travel abroad.

You can use Enterprise Data Extra  alongside your domestic mobile subscription, switching to it when you travel abroad. It reduces travel costs while providing dependable, secure mobile data connectivity, keeping you connected and protecting the bottom line of your organisation.

Telecom26’s Enterprise Data Extra service has been specifically designed to meet the needs of business travellers with their employers able to customise corporate packages for the specific countries where they do business – and where their people need to visit.

The service provides mobile data access in more than 200 countries and territories, so business users can easily access data on their mobile – or tether for laptop applications.

Enterprise Data Extra is available as an eSIM so users can keep their domestic physical SIM card - and re-activate it when they return home.

Better still, Enterprise Data Extra is backed by boutique customer support solutions to give business travellers the personalised care they need – and deserve.

Ocorian switches to Enterprise Data Extra

Previously, Ocorian’s employees used standard mobile operator roaming services or bought packages from travel SIM companies when they were away for work. Both options were expensive and often accompanied by poor coverage, unreliable speeds and minimal to no customer service.

Switching to Enterprise Data Extra means that Ocorian’s team can now download and use Telecom26’s eSIMs, which are automatically activated when users travel abroad – and switch back to their domestic operator when they return home.

Ocorian has already reduced its roaming costs by more than 75% by switching to Telecom26’s eSIM. In addition, use of Telecom26 has enabled additional savings through tighter spending caps and more cost-effective local carrier contracts.

Here you can read more about the many other benefits that Ocorian is experiencing thanks to Telecom26.

Ocorian joins many other global companies who have moved to Telecom26 and are now using Enterprise Data Extra.  You can read our case study Large Bank Chooses Telecom26’s eSIMs and Global Mobile Connectivity Service here. Hundreds of the bank’s employees travel regularly to meet clients and visit the bank’s offices spread across 90 countries. They now use Telecom26’s network for always-on, reliable and cost-effective connectivity.
