GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Apr 25: Bharti Airtel on Sunday said it has launched a new SIM for global travellers through which a customer can save up to 85 per cent on international calls.
Airtel World SIM enables outbound travellers to retain their local number as calls made on Airtel India number would be forwarded on the new Airtel World SIM, a spokesman of the company in a statement to Greater Kashmir said.
It costs a fraction of international roaming and customers save up to 85 per cent on international calls, the statement said.
Airtel World SIM also offers a single mobile number valid across 190 countries that will help international travellers not to carry multiple SIMs for different countries.
The new service will be initially available to Airtel customers in Delhi followed by rest of the country, the company said.
"The Airtel World SIM allows travellers to retain access to incoming calls on their India number, their local-SIM contacts and seamless connectivity in 190 countries," Bharti Airtel Director-Marketing (Mobile Services) Shireesh Joshi said.
Airtel World SIM can be recharged online anywhere, the company added.
A subscriber identity module (SIM) is a removable SIM card that stores the service-subscriber key (IMSI) used to identify a subscriber on mobile telephony devices.
