Telecoms leader Top Connect (www.topconnect.com) today announces that it will again exhibit at the annual International Telecoms Week (ITW) Expo in Chicago (May 12-15, 2014) at booth # 1516, Purple Level at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
ITW is a must-attend event for decision makers in the telecom industry, particularly tier 1, 2 and 3 network carriers. It provides a platform for Top Connect’s management to discuss wholesale roaming rates with its network of 200 GSM providers with a view to ensuring quality of service for its pre-paid TravelSim (www.travelsim.com) product as well as unbeatable international calling rates.
Top Connect is an agile telecoms firm and its TravelSim brand is the world’s leading international roaming card service with a user base of over 4 million. Over 80,000 new subscribers sign up for the service each month.
With the goal of growing the user base to 5 million be end 2014, Top Connect recently embarked upon a “Think Global, Act Local” business strategy and is progressively rolling out local numbers for the most popular countries visited by businessmen and holidaymakers.
TravelSim USA with #1 and TravelSim UK with #44 numbers are already available. Incoming calls to these local numbers are free from 66 countries, as are incoming SMS messages. Outgoing calls and data have the same unbeatable price plans as the regular TravelSim service.
TravelSim local cards are offered through Top Connect's distributors worldwide.
Earlier this year, Top Connect announced that the TravelSim service had saved its user base a collective $200 million in roaming charges in 2013. The firm expects to increase this increase to $300 million by end 2014 and supplying “local” numbers from power up is seen by Top Connect’s management as a key driver.
The figure compares TravelSim’s service with costs that would have been amassed if its user base had paid standard roaming charges from their local providers when travelling abroad.
Thanks to its agreements with tier one GSM providers around the globe, TravelSim provides a high quality, low cost service that can save customers up to 85% on making calls while abroad. It also offers free incoming calls in 140 countries and free worldwide SMS. The TravelSim product can be used in 190 countries.
