Microsoft is showing that it can enter the mobile data game without itself becoming a mobile network operator. Recently, it was revealed that Microsoft is looking forward to a SIM card that can provide virtually unlimited mobile data to anyone using Windows 10.
Recently, Transatel had made the announcement that Microsoft decided to retain its SIM 901 solution in order to support an upcoming paid cellular data service exclusively for Windows 10. All devices (laptops and tablets) already on Microsoft’s latest operating system will need a Microsoft SIM card with Transatel’s 901 technology to utilize pre-paid 3G/4G-LTE data services practically anywhere in the world without having to be tied to contracts. What’s more, customers can use their own Microsoft account to make pre-paid purchases. This means that personal information and credit card information will remain secure.
Transatel’s 901 SIM Card boasts an International MNC or Mobile Network Code that allows users to experience multi-local connectivity. What’s more, this SIM 901 technology has been designed to be non-geographic so it can acquire 3G/4G-LTE connectivity in several countries at local conditions. To date, Transatel says their SIM technology can allow users to gain mobile data connectivity in 38 countries. And by the end of the first quarter of 2016, it is expected that Transatel will reach as much as 50 countries.
For Windows 10 users, you only need to get a Microsoft SIM card and download the free Cellular Data app so you can start enjoying high-speed mobile connection without being locked into a fixed contract. You can also read the steps in purchasing a data plan here.
