Over the last three years we’ve put a tremendous amount of effort into building a mobile data service that is both disruptive and –more important – valuably beneficial to business travelers and connected travelers. We’re proud and gratified to say that our solution for international travelers is now available and gaining acceptance in more than 100 countries worldwide.
Over those three years, we have built a solid global network with the help of many outstanding partners around the world, so reaching the milestone of GigSky availability in more than 100 countries makes for an exciting start to 2014.
In our view, there really hasn’t been a service from major operators that truly allows international travelers to use data in a “mobile” state, which is why a customizable global data solution like GigSky has never been more important. The dynamic world we live in today is one where everyone uses the Internet, where we maintain a digital lifestyle though sending and receiving email, videoconferencing via virtual collaboration tools, and checking in with family and friends no matter where we are.
Now well-situated with GigSky service availability worldwide, we can’t wait to see what’s next. We believe the potential for growth in mobile data services in years to come is big, based on market forecasts we’ve seen and data points such as smartphones now holding more than 55 percent of the mobile phone market and share still growing rapidly.
With data ultimately becoming a greater proportion of how we communicate, we know that GigSky will help international business travelers in more ways than one. Whether checking a map, getting the latest customer-profile info from the home office, finding a cool restaurant or simply sending a Skype message to your buddy back home, GigSky promises to keep you connected everywhere you go, with new countries being added all the time.
Wishing you a Happy New Year and safe travels!
The GigSky Team
