General Mobile Manager Darren Goldsmith talks through our latest product launch
Mobile phones have come a long way since my first days working in telecoms almost 22 years ago. The idea of accessing the internet from your phone was barely realised, yet now mobile data makes up an impressive 55% of global online traffic1. With the increasing spread of 5G data, our connection to other people has never been faster, yet having access to the internet from a device small enough to fit in your pocket is still amazing to think of when I think back to the handsets I started selling.
With the launch of our new Daisy Anywhere product, I’ve come to realise just how far mobile data has come. It is a type of connection that many of us just think of to connect our phones to online entertainment, or our email clients when we’re in work. But with Daisy Anywhere, it’s time to see mobile data in a totally fresh light.
Daisy Anywhere has opened a whole new world of connectivity for our customers that they may never have been able to access before. From something seemingly as simple as connecting a refrigeration unit in a retail outlet in Derby to a company’s head office in London. To the wider scale of connectivity: connecting a pop-up hospital to the web in a matter of days; giving staff at a music festival access to fast high-quality internet without the need to hardwire in infrastructure; or even enabling schoolchildren to get online safely during the pandemic so they can continue their study even at home.
Access to a reliable, fast internet connection is something we are all in need of and there are many networks offering SIM cards with the data for these solutions. All of whom provide some great contracts on astounding networks, but with Daisy Anywhere, one SIM card has access to all four of these networks with another 650 around the globe. In addition, it is “unsteered” which means it always connects to the fastest provider, ensuring our customers get the best of all four networks at all times. Our customers can control their costs with our flexible tariffs and data tiers that fit to their usage, removing the risk of expensive data overages that can come with a single network product.
It is a great step to add Daisy Anywhere to our current network partners and we are already seeing opportunities from our customers to put SIM cards into their vehicle fleets, CCTV cameras, refrigeration units and personal safety devices. The applications for these SIMs are truly endless and if the pandemic has taught us anything, the value of remote control of our device networks is perhaps now more important than ever.
So please, make sure you take the time to take a look at the Daisy Anywhere webpage. It’ll give you an idea of how this product works, and how revolutionary it could be for your business.
