Trustive has signed a bilateral roaming agreement with Swisscom
Mobile, Switzerland’s number one mobile provider.
The agreement means that Swisscom Mobile’s customers will be able to access
Trustive’s global network, which already covers most major European
airports and many other prime locations. In addition, Swisscom Mobile’s
hotspot network of more than 1,000 high-quality hotspots in Switzerland,
including Geneva airport and many major hotels, will be integrated into the
Trustive network. This now includes over 32,000 hotspots, of which 25,000
hotspots are already available, with the remainder becoming accessible
within 30 days.
Swisscom Mobile customers will be able to gain seamless access to the
extended hotspots offering through a Swisscom Mobile branded web login by
entering their mobile number and a password received via SMS. Via this
login users will be able to use the Trustive network wherever they are in
the world and have the convenience of being billed for the hotspot usage to
their Swisscom Mobile invoice.
Gavin Dresselhuis, co-founder and managing director of Trustive, said:
“Swisscom Mobile is a key mobile operator in the European WiFi space, so we
are delighted to be working with them. This furthers Trustive’s position
as leaders in the European WiFi access market and is great news for both
our retail and wholesale customers.”
Tommy Bertling, senior product manager at Swisscom Mobile, said: “We are
continually looking to provide innovative WiFi services to our customers.
This agreement with Trustive means that we can offer access to an expanded
hi-quality network all under the Swisscom brand.”
