eSIM-enabled smartphones are taking the market by storm: an opportunity to (re)discover Ubigi’s versatility

Following in the tracks of the iPhone XS and XR1, the Google Pixel 3, and the Galaxy Fold LTE, the latest releases from Samsung, the S20, the S20 + and the S20 Ultra, are also giving their users the eSIM-advantage! Why is it an advantage? The eSIM serves mainly as a second SIM, to be used as a replacement for the main one in certain situations, for which the primary data plan wouldn’t be cost-effective. Ubigi‘s strength is that it offers particularly attractive rates for the use of data in more than 150 countries. It’s a boon for travelers, especially business travelers, who cannot depend on unreliable and unsecured Wi-Fi. Pioneering solutions against roaming costs since 2000, Transatel is one of the first operators in the world to offer a service compatible with all SIM-unlocked devices equipped with an eSIM.

Ubigi’s eSIM disrupts mobile behaviors

Ubigi’s eSIM solution is ideal for all the occasional and regular travelers who want to be able to connect globally, while still benefiting from near-to-local rates for data. With Ubigi’s eSIM, you no longer have to wait to receive a SIM card in the mail or buy it in a store. Simple and easy to implement, the whole process is digital: from downloading an eSIM profile to buying a data plan, through to selfcare and balance updates.

Thanks to inexpensive data plans offered for more than 150 countries and destinations, Ubigi enables you to get your emails, browse the internet, use navigation apps, stream videos, stay connected on social media and send photos and videos to your contacts. Moreover, unlike public Wi-Fi, the cellular connectivity offered via Ubigi secures the data traffic. Public Wi-Fi is, by nature, vulnerable to hacking and spyware. Since public Wi-Fi networks are unencrypted and unsecured, any username, password, and information can be intercepted. Using a 4G mobile network, such as the one offered by Ubigi, therefore protects users’ data, as well as their company‘s information systems.

… without the bill-shock!

Ubigi offers the most cost-effective prepaid data plans for trips abroad. Several plans exist: global, by continent, or by country. Easy to use, Ubigi’s eSIM profile can be downloaded for free from any eSIM- compatible device on https://cellulardata.ubigi.com/fr/appareils-mobiles/obtenir-esim/

Examples of plans offered (here, for Europe)

Since the launch in November 2018, Ubigi’s eSIM has already won over consumers all around the world: Japan, France and the United States are the countries with the highest number of eSIM profile downloads.

Transatel, a mobile operator ahead of its time

While most smartphone manufacturers are currently launching eSIM-enabled references, Ubigi’s eSIM profiles are already compatible with all operating systems: iOS for iPhone and iPad (iPhone 11, 11 Pro, Max, XS, XS Max, XR, iPad Air / Pro, iPad Mini); Android (Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3A, Google Pixel 4, Samsung Galaxy Fold, Samsung S20, S20 +, S20 Ultra, Gemini PDA) and Windows 10 for PCs (ASUS NovaGo, HP Envy x2, Lenovo Yoga 630, Microsoft Surface Pro X & 5 with LTE Advanced)2.

As a reminder, Transatel has long supported the development of eSIM as part of the ‘Always Connected PCs’ initiative launched by Microsoft. Transatel is also a member of the GSMA taskforce, made up of 80 Original Equipment Manufacturers and mobile operators, within which the company is helping to set new industry standards for the eSIM.
