Changes to roaming and international rates
International calls – do you make calls to suppliers, customers or other parts of the business which are located abroad? If so, I would arrange for an international call bundle to be added to your tariff. Call costs will be a lot lower so you can avoid large mobile bills. If you do use your mobile abroad, without a call bundle, charges have still reduced.
Roaming abroad – When using your mobile abroad, you have to connect to an international network to transmit your calls, texts and data. This is called ‘Roaming’. Your UK network will charge you excessive fees to use the international roaming facilities and so I will find the best solution to suit your roaming needs. However the law is changing, by 2017 you will be able to take your UK tariff abroad and roam without paying any additional charges.
By finding the right solution for you, I can potentially save you hundreds on your excessive roaming charges. As we partner with all the major networks we are able to find the very best for you. For example, are you aware the Vodafone have recently added a further 28 countries into their world roaming plan.
Other changes to save you money
Did you also know that calls to 0800 numbers are now free from your mobile? Ofcom have regulated the costs of these calls to make it fairer for mobile users.
Working on the move
Advances in mobile operating systems and handsets have made it even easier to work on the go. With powerful operating systems and superfast mobile broadband, smartphones and tablets are key elements to keep you working whilst out of the office. If you are thinking about upgrading your mobile package or starting a contract, here are some things you may wish to consider first.
Smart phones – size can vary greatly depending on the make and model. Most providers will launch new phones in two sizes – Apple iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, or Samsung S6 Edge or S6 Edge +. And although you can access the internet, read emails and use business applications on all sizes. You might prefer the larger models for working on the go with a larger screen.
Tablets – it isn’t only just the Apple iPad, Samsung also offer a range of tablets, suitable for business use. Larger than a smartphone, tablets can enable your workforce to do more on the go; presenting in meetings, sharing proposals or accessing business information and applications. We offer a range of tariffs or customised plans with our tablets, and will find the best solution for you.
Mobile broadband – Connect to the internet on your mobile, tablet or laptop wherever you are with mobile broadband. This portable USB or mobile SIM will enable staff to work anywhere, on the go. No more worrying about public WiFi security or network availability, with mobile broadband you can have high-speed data access instantly. Mobile broadband will keep you and your colleagues connected, to be more productive whilst commuting or travelling for work.
International and roaming packages – say good bye to large phone bills and avoiding using your mobile while away on business. Reductions in roaming charges and the ability to use your existing tariff when you are abroad means that you can use your calls and data whilst you are aboard. Meaning business doesn’t stop the moment you step on a plane!
