February 5th 2014, London - Uros announces it now provides low-cost mobile data also for travellers heading to Latin America with Goodspeed mobile Internet service. The newly added regions include Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.
With Goodspeed service now covering 50% of the world’s land mass, business travellers can access predictable, fast and low-cost mobile internet in 45 countries including destinations like the US, Canada, Russia, China, Europe and now Latin America.
32% of B2B sales secured in Brazil alone are the result of face-to-face meetings1. By offering a reliable flat rate mobile internet access for €9.90 (approx. £ 8.20) a day with 500MB of data, travellers can stay connected and conduct business with confidence and not have to worry about exorbitant data roaming charges. Without Goodspeed the cost of data roaming in Latin America can cost as much as £3 per Megabyte, which equals to £1500 for 500MB.
500MB of data is the equivalent of 100 emails, 2 hours of web browsing, 20 minutes of video streaming and 30 minutes of Skype calls. It is also twice the daily data consumption of the average Internet user.
The Goodspeed service is enabled by the Goodspeed hotspot, which can accommodate up to nine destination SIM cards, including user’s own SIMs. The device and the destination SIM cards can be purchased direct from www.getgoodspeed.com, prior to travelling. With Goodspeed international travellers can create a private WLAN network and share the connection with up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and smart TVs, at any one time.
Tommi Uhari, CEO of Uros says “The emerging markets in Latin America are becoming key destinations for business travellers to initiate and maintain client relations. Adding these 15 countries Goodspeed now covers the important business region of the Americas and we are on our way to building a truly global network so users can enjoy low-cost, transparent internet access wherever they are in the world. Goodspeed spells the end to data roaming bill shock.”
Goodspeed offers three service plans - Lite, Pro or Business. For more information on these plans and the Goodspeed personal mobile Wi-Fi hotspot device please visit www.getgoodspeed.com.
