Ultra Mobile and Sister Brand Mint SIM Announce Exclusive Partnership With campusSIMs, the Mobile Innovator that Provides Hassle Free Mobile Services for International Students Studying in the U.S.


NEW YORK, July 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultra Mobile, a nationwide mobile carrier developing first-of-its-kind mobile phone services with unlimited international communications, has announced today their exclusive partnership with campusSIMs, the high growth mobile service provider that is revolutionizing how international students obtain mobile phone services while studying in the United States. Through the partnership, Ultra Mobile will integrate their sister product Mint SIM into campusSIMs' service, allowing students to utilize Mint's high-speed network, unlimited talk, text and data plans at unmatched low prices.

A pain point for international students who choose to study in the U.S. is the hassle of obtaining mobile phone service from traditional carriers, who often require students to sign up for expensive contracts that will be of no use to them when they are back home or put down hefty deposits.

Now, international students will be able to register for mobile service using campusSIMs' easy end- to-end mobile app and choose their Mint SIM plan based off how much data they typically use per month. Importantly, students can then use their own devices, sign up for services, and receive their U.S. phone number in their home countries. Mint SIM's offerings through campusSIMs are valued at three tiers for one month, $35 a month for 2GB of 4GLTE, $50 a month for 5GB of 4G LTE and $60 a month of 10GB 4G LTE. These price options are in line with Mint SIM's flexible and innovative services, allowing customers to take ownership of their wireless coverage at the lowest price points on the market.

"We are growing rapidly at Ultra Mobile, and are constantly evolving to meet the current needs and demands of today's customers by launching and partnering with companies that will continue to help us provide the best services and value on the market," said Rizwan Kassim, Chief Strategy Officer, Partner at Ultra Mobile. "CampusSIMs is providing unmatched value to the community of international students. We saw a real opportunity to not only help campusSIMs' students get access to the best plans at low cost with Mint SIM, but continue to scaleUltra Mobile's offerings as we continue to democratize communications for all."

Ultra Mobile launched Mint SIM last year, when the company found a white space in the market for a MVNO that taps into today's money conscious, agile consumer who want the freedom from the constraints of a big carrier contract. By tapping into media disruption, Mint's goal is to continue to change the conversation about how society views their wireless plans through their innovative prepaid plans and flexible service offerings.

"Ultra Mobile caught our attention because of how rapidly the company is growing within international communities," said Claire Newton, former CEO of campusSIMs and Director, campusSIMs & Educational Distribution at Ultra Mobile. "Mint SIM is the perfect brand for campusSIMs to align with because they are currently tapping into the voice of the digitally savvy millennial. Mint SIMs provides value to our students because they aren't tied down to a binding carrier contract with added fees and they can choose a plan that fits their needs. campusSIMs is thrilled to be able to offer Mint SIM to our customers and continue to provide a hassle-free experience to international students."


campusSIMs has subscribers attending over 400 different US colleges and universities.  Top institutions including NYU, Georgetown and Stanford offer campusSIMs' services to their international students.
