Extreme partners with Truphone to launch eSIM enabled mobile service: Extreme Connect
EXTREME Connect, in partnership with Truphone, allows users to access data across the world at the touch of a button, without the need for plastic SIMs.
Today, Truphone announces its partnership with EXTREME—bringing its state-of-the-art eSIM technology to EXTREME’s new mobile communication offering: EXTREME Connect.
EXTREME Connect will be powered via an app by Truphone’s state-of-the-art platform for enabling companies to bundle its connectivity and eSIM technology with their existing products.
In 2018, Truphone launched the world’s first end-user app to offer global connectivity via eSIM. Today, its platform enables partners to offer similar functionality in their own apps and channels. EXTREME and Truphone have collaborated to create a connectivity solution for EXTREME customers and followers via Truphone’s platform.
A company that prides itself on its nomad approach to travel, EXTREME needed a partner that would afford its users the freedom to stay connected anywhere in the world, at a moment’s notice at affordable prices. Truphone allows EXTREME’s users to focus on their own adventures—safe in the knowledge that connectivity is covered.
With Truphone, each EXTREME Connect subscriber will now have access to data in more than 110 countries.
And with over 100 direct global roaming agreements provided through the Truphone network, EXTREME Connect offers its users high streaming speeds and reduced latency. Alongside this, Truphone’s flexible billing option permits users to top-up anytime they want. This means no daily charges while roaming or lost money every time you cross a border.
Scott MacKenzie, Head of Product Management at Truphone said: “When we created Truphone Connect, we did so because we envisioned just how much freedom it would afford partners and users alike. With EXTREME Connect, we’re seeing the scope of that initial vision come to life. At Truphone, we pride ourselves on our ability to make the world more accessible through connectivity. Where you travel to shouldn’t be held back by something as simple as data access. We’re thrilled to be working with EXTREME to open up more of the world while keeping users tied to the action.”
Alistair Gosling, CEO at EXTREME said: “I am incredibly pleased to announce the Launch of EXTREME Connect, our new global mobile solution for life's explorers. EXTREME Connect is global, sustainable, and able to get you connected immediately from anywhere in the world via our app and our cutting edge virtual eSIM system.
Our belief is that current mobile network offers leave much to be desired by our community in terms of experience. Life is complicated enough, and we therefore set about devising solutions. No more roaming charges, no waiting for SIM cards, and clear price plans mean that EXTREME Connect is now the most user-friendly mobile solution available.
The team, led by Ryan Maxwell, have done a brilliant job in bringing this to fruition and huge thanks go to Truphone for making this possible.”
Truphone believes that connectivity can be easier, smarter and more efficient. Since 2006, we have built state of the art SIM software, intuitive management platforms and a powerful global network to make this a reality.
Every day, our technicians engineer better connections between things, people and business to make the world smarter. Headquartered in London, we have 15 offices across four continents and continue to expand globally. To learn more, visit www.truphone.com.
