ELSTREE, U.K. -- MaxSIM.co.uk, a leading provider of prepaid roaming mobile phone services, today announces the launch of its first-to-market web-enabled and conference calling facilities, becoming the only prepaid SIM provider to offer such a service. This leading edge service allows business users to not only make cheap calls, but also to set up conference calls whilst abroad at no additional fee for the conference facility, via any phone, anywhere.
MaxSIM.co.uk's service is web-enabled, meaning calls are set up and connected via the internet, as opposed to a traditional mobile phone network. Therefore a businessperson travelling in Japan can set up a conference call with colleagues in Madrid, London, New York and Sydney and only pay for the cost of the calls rather than the conference service.
As it's a web-enabled service this also means its not handset dependent, i.e. the users can use hotel phones without incurring the high costs associated with hotel phones. The service will allow up to 20 conference call connections at any one time.
Richard Thompson from MaxSIM.co.uk comments "We are delighted to launch a market first technology. The web is a powerful business tool, and as yet, no mobile provider has harnessed its full power to help consumers save money. The new services provide a business traveller the opportunity to access comprehensive communication facilities from anywhere they are in the world, whilst benefiting from call charges that are up to 85% cheaper than the main mobile operators."
