Truphone Intros 'Local Anywhere SIM'
Today Truphone announced a new service that is aimed at frequent world travelers. The new service, which will initially work in the U.S. and the U.K., will give users a local number to use no matter which country they happen to be in. Truphone says the application will provide local calling rates in countries where Truphone is active; local calling numbers; and low-cost international calling and roaming (when not in Truphone countries). Calling rates will start at 12 cents per minute. The service requires a new SIM (from Truphone) and an unlocked GSM phone. Truphone said it will be expanding Local Anywhere SIM to other countries around the world throughout 2010.
