Top Connect continues US customer drive, exhibiting at PrePaid Press Expo

Telecoms leader showcasing TravelSim to US MVNOs in Las Vegas

Telecoms leader Top Connect has announced that it will exhibit its world leading call back TravelSim product at The PrePaid Press show being held in Las Vegas this month (18-20th August). The telco will be holding a number of strategic meetings with US mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) as potential US distributors on its booth #224 at the Planet Hollywood venue.

Now in its seventh year, The Prepaid Press Expo offers industry one of the most diverse programs for prepaid services. Importantly, it enables MVNOs to meet and discuss revenue generating opportunities with leading industry players and Top Connect is the undisputed world leader.

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 4.5 million. Over 80,000 new subscribers sign up for the service each month.

With the goal of growing the user base to 5 million by end 2014, Top Connect sees the US market as one with the most potential.

Customers of US MVNOs are provided a local #1 number and 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.

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.

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.

"TravelSim is a product of our time and enables millions of business users and travellers to save substantial amounts of money in communications at anytime, from anywhere," says Mikhail Markin, Head of Product Development Department, TravelSim.

"The PrePaid Expo show is the perfect venue for Top Connect to discuss and agree new distributor agreements with American MVNOs and to add value to their brands."
