Truphone announces data plans for iPad users in Ireland and Portugal

Customers can use the same data plan while travelling in 40 countries

Truphone, the London-based global mobile tech disruptor, today announces it is offering data plans for iPad users with Apple SIM in Ireland and Portugal. Following last week's launch in Australia and the Netherlands, consumers can now purchase Truphone iPad data plans in eight countries – with further roll-outs planned to 31 countries by the end of 2017. This builds on Truphone's status as the first global mobile operator.

Truphone Data Plans give iPad users the ability to instantly get online and stay connected via the Truphone network at home and while travelling in 40 countries without international roaming charges.

As an introductory offer, Truphone is giving customers 100MB of data for free. The "try before you buy" offer makes it easy for iPad users to get 4G data directly on their iPad with no obligation to purchase.

Truphone promises:

  • Flexible Plans: Greater choice around connectivity without being locked into long-term contracts.
  • Lower Prices: Cheaper data packages without international roaming charges.
  • Convenience: Connect right from your iPad with Apple SIM in just a few taps, eliminating the need to visit retail stores.
  • Global Bundle: Use the same data package in 40 countries without the need to swap SIM cards or buy more data when travelling.

The launch coincides with the global rollout of two additional features:

  • Auto Renew: Automatically purchase a new data plan when the current one expires or is consumed for uninterrupted 4G connectivity, with in-built overspend protection.
  • Top Up Anytime: The freedom to add more data anytime, anywhere without having to wait for your plan to expire. Create an easily-managed queue of data plans to make sure you never run out of data.

Consumers can already purchase Truphone iPad data plans in Australia, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and the UK.

Apple SIM makes it easy to sign up for a cellular data plan right on your iPad so you can stay connected when you're away from Wi-Fi at home or while travelling. Apple SIM is built into iPad Pro 10.5-inch, iPad Pro 12.9-inch (second generation) and iPad Pro 9.7-inch Wi-Fi + Cellular models, and is compatible with iPad 5th generation, iPad Pro 12.9-inch (1st generation), iPad mini 4 and iPad Air 2 Wi-Fi + Cellular models.
