MaxRoam Aims to Cut World Cup Roaming Bill for Fans


(Business Wire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 11, 2010--MaxRoam, the flagship retail brand of licensed mobile network operator, Cubic Telecom, has launched a SIM card for English and European World Cup soccer fans in South Africa that will cut the cost of roaming by up to 50% or more.



Many consumer advocates and media have warned English fans about the potential high cost of texting and calling home from South Africa. EU regulations, which cap roaming charges, do not apply outside the EU.

MaxRoam has launched a special World Cup SIM pack which comes with up to 100 minutes of calls to any EU country for (GBP)50. On some networks this would cost up to (GBP)145. Details at www.maxroam.com.
