Data Select has announced a partnership with FooConnect, selling its Global MiFi device to tackle data roaming charges.
The distributor, which is part of the BrandPath Group, explained that FooConnect’s MiFi device will combat roaming charges for consumers and businesses by enabling the user to purchase a data bundle via the FooConnect portal. The device will allow up to 10 devices to be connected at one time, with FooConnect claiming that ‘when data runs out, simply top-up again, there are no bundle charges to worry about’.
FooConnect, part of Ghost Telecom Group, currently provides 3G connectivity in 96 countries and claims it is looking to use its partnership with Data Select to cut roaming charges in Europe.
Kate Hamiltion, CMO at Ghost Telecom, said: ‘Our partnership with Data Select will enable many more people to say goodbye to expensive data roaming charges in Europe, the USA and worldwide. FooConnect solves a long standing problem for travellers, and with Data Select’s reach and expertise, together we’re going to help customers avoid unnecessary mobile bill shocks this summer.’?
