Truphone Enables Local and Global All in One Mobile Device

July 30, 2014

If you’re a business owner, chances are that going global would be the pinnacle of your success. Demand for your products or services have exceeded national borders and you now have offices in both New York and London. It requires you to travel extensively, but with communication resources today, you can always stay connected.

The challenge, of course, is that you have to carry two mobile devices or pay enormous fees for roaming in another country. And, you want your London clients to be able to call a local number to get you on the phone. It’s really only a complete headache when you arrive in New York with only your London device in hand.

Truphone aimed to eliminate this challenge by giving global travelers like you the opportunity to chuck the second mobile device and rely on one. The Truphone service gets rid of the roaming fees, yet still allows you to keep two numbers so your clients still feel like they have that local connection. Plus, you no longer have to pay two phone bills and try to manage the activity on two devices.

To take it one step further, Truphone also launched its global mobile network. The company positions the new network as offering exceptional call quality as well as fast data for more than 220 countries. Users operate in what is known as the Truphone Zone, where incoming calls are always free. And when you’re ready to expand to Milan, Athens and Tokyo, you can still stay local on one device. The Truphone zone allows this capability in up to eight countries while you maintain multiple international numbers on your SIM.

The Truphone World provides users with a bundle that covers calls, texts and data in 66 countries, including the eight selected in the Truphone Zone. The company’s network extends to more than 200 countries, allowing the global professional to stay connected at a cost that fits their budget. Plus, new countries are consistently being added, creating new opportunities along the way.

Complete connectivity is just one of the ways Truphone is adding value to the global markets. The company is also playing a pivotal role in the development of WebRTC to enable real-time communications across multiple platforms. Truphone was on hand at the recent WebRTC Conference & Expo and provided a demonstration of their latest offering. To get the full scoop, check out this video from the event.
