Transatel supports modern Robinson Crusoes

Transatel DataSIM has added 23 islands of the Dutch and French West Indies to the list of countries from which clients can use their prepaid data to connect to the internet. Transatel offers a Caribbean bundle of 1GB for €29.

With the addition of these islands, Transatel DataSIM says that it is delivering further on its promise of ‘always on’ secure connectivity for frequent travellers. The network now seamlessly covers over 100 countries from a single SIM card which can be installed in a range of device including a hotspot, laptop or tablet.

Transatel’s prepaid global SIM card expires 18 months after last use and can be recharged through the customer webapp for future travels. The SIM card can be purchased via the Transatel website, and can be delivered worldwide.

Transatel DataSIM also provides six other 1Gb bundles, for Europe, Asia, Oceania, Americas, Africa, and the Caribbean. Bundles can be combined and added to existing credit on the account, and the bundle is then prioritized when traveling to a country it covers.

For travelers who do not own a laptop or tablet with a slot for a SIM card, Transatel offers the Wi-Fi hotspot as an alternative. Ordered and delivered already preconfigured with the SIM card, the hotspot shares internet access with up to ten separate devices simultaneously, a solution aimed at trips with family, friends or colleagues.

Interviewed last year, Transatel’s CEO Jacques Bonifay (pictured) spoke to Mobile about premium charges levied by MNOs for 4G services.

Transatel’s areas of expertise include MVNO, MVNE/A, Machine-to-Machine, embedded connectivity, and multi-local data connectivity. The company is established in France, the UK, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and the United States.
