MELBOURNE (PRUnderground) October 29th, 2015
Australian start-up Strone Technology today confirmed a strategic partnership with GigSky, a leading provider of world mobile data services. GigSky will supply Strone with the GigSky SIM, a global data-only SIM card, so their customers can easily access GigSky’s world mobile data services while traveling abroad.
The Strone GigSky pairing means that every Strone Roam device will now include a free GigSky SIM card, which will let customers use data in over 90 countries, as well as keep track of how much data they are using via the GigSky App. Additionally, the GigSky SIM card eliminates the need to buy a local SIM in every new country a traveller visits, and allows them to connect to data immediately upon arrival.Ravi Rishy-Maharaj, Founder and CEO of GigSky noted, “Strone Technology is the ideal partner for GigSky, as we provide the data connectivity travellers need to stay productive, and Strone provides the always important voice and text communication. We could not be happier to bring our individual strengths together for a common purpose – to create various connectivity options for the worldwide traveller.”
The device, complete with a GigSky SIM, will be available in early February 2016. Those interested in using Strone overseas are encouraged to order the device via Strone.co, to be among the first to experience hassle free global communication.
Strone Roam is a simple, elegant answer to the universal fear of bill shock. The service works by placing your SIM card into the device, which is about the size of a soft drink can. The Strone Roam device stays in your home or office connected to the internet, and pairs with the Strone App on your phone. From there, travellers can easily and conveniently make and receive calls and text messages straight from their device, without the fear of international roaming charges. Strone Technology has achieved a remarkable amount in just over 12 months including a successful seed round in February 2015.
GigSky is the first global mobile data network designed for travellers. GigSky specializes in international data to give individuals and businesses the best service and coverage in a seamless experience. GigSky is available on the GigSky SIM and App. It is also available to iPad users with Apple SIM who select a GigSky data plan directly on their iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 4. iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4 Wi-Fi + Cellular models in the US and UK come with Apple SIM pre-installed. Apple SIM is also available at select Apple Retail Stores for individual purchase. Connect with us on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
