Pooled plans for international cellular and Iridium satellite service
subscribers. Rather than foregoing unused minutes at the end of each month,

minutes for a period of 12 months. Roadpost’s new pooled services feature

for international services,” said Morris Shawn, President and CEO of
Roadpost. “With the carry forward and pooled features, we can deliver
exceptional value and flexibility to help organizations better manage their
international telecommunications budget.
“International travellers want flexibility with their telecommunications

carry forward and pool minutes on a subscription plan can certainly
translate into overall savings—up to 32 per cent—and better management
