Transatel is joining the international effort to help Ukrainian refugees by organizing an unprecedented donation. This world leader in cellular connectivity offers 10,000 Ubigi eSIM virtual SIM cards as well as Ubigi WIFI Hotspots.
Together with the Permanent Representation of Ukraine to the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, Transatel presents the new eSIM Ubigi initiative for Ukrainian refugees; a unique and free data plan available in the form of a QR Code. Each user of these 10,000 unique eSIMs will have 2 Gigabytes of data available for 90 days, free of charge.
From March 31, 2022, Ubigi eSIM cards will be sent to the Ukrainian embassies in many European capitals and to the local authorities of these cities, which co-organize the reception. The border towns with Ukraine will also have Ubigi eSIM thanks to the participation of Caritas International.
These cards are intended for Ukrainian citizens who wish to join their relatives, plan their trips, and find accommodation in a new city in Europe.
