Discover how EcoSim’s eSIM works
EcoSim: the solution to reduce your roaming costs !
An EcoSim is an international virtual SIM card that can be used in compatible mobile devices. It works the same way as a traditional SIM card, but you no longer need a physical card. The eSIM is automatically activated over the internet on your device via a QR code.
Unlike traditional mobile phone plans that provide voice, text messaging and data services, EcoSim only provides data and internet connectivity. However, with EcoSim you can use your favourite communication and VoIP apps such as Skype, WhatsApp, Viber, iMessage, Teams, Facebook, Messenger, Twitter, etc.
You can still be reached via your usual phone number to make or receive calls and send text messages while using the EcoSim data service.
You decide, using your smartphone settings, whether the data service is provided via EcoSim.
Key benefits of EcoSim
EcoSim is “multi-local” (i.e. international). In other words, this means that it is not tied to a national operator and so the concept of roaming does not exist. You benefit, anywhere in the world and at any time, from local rates for data connectivity. EcoSim is a reliable service available in 196 countries.
When not using it, you don’t pay anything.
You only pay for what you use, and there is no subscription.
Good reasons for buying an EcoSim
Because the roaming charges of your traditional operator can be exorbitant when you travel abroad and your EcoSim can reduce roaming costs by 90%!
Because public WiFi networks can be unsafe or offer poor connectivity while the internet connection provided via EcoSim is encrypted and therefore secure.
Because staying always connected on the go is not only a top priority when travelling for business, but also very useful when on holidays or travelling to unfamiliar cities
Because you want to use all the features of your smartphone, particularly the dual eSIM functionality.
To have a backup for your main data plan.
Because you are environmentally-conscious and are looking to reduce your use of plastic.
Simple low-cost billing
Once the EcoSim is installed on your device it is ready to be used. Simply activate the data service on your smartphone via EcoSim. Each month, you are only billed for the data used. The cost will depend on the volume used in the countries you visited. In each country, you benefit from a price per MB equivalent to that of local operators, and there are never any roaming charges.
