The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2015-03-10T05:27:23Z D-Link partners with Globalgig to offer 4G LTE VoIP Router with 4G SIM card and $30 credit in the box 2015-03-10T05:27:23Z d-link-partners-with-globalgig-to-offer-4g-lte-voip-router-with-4g-sim-card-and-30-credit-in-the-box-1 Global connectivity specialists D-Link have partnered with low cost mobile broadband providers Globalgig to provide a 4G LTE VoIP Router, the DWR-922, complete with a Globalgig 4G SIM card and $30 credit in the box allowing users to immediately access the Globalgig mobile broadband network in 84 countries worldwide.   D-Link MD Graeme Reardon explained, “In today’s data-hungry world, connectivity is king. By partnering with Globalgig, we are now offering 4G mobile broadband users an excellent solution that works straight out of the box. You just insert the Globalgig 4G SIM card that comes in the box into the DWR-922, register it with Globalgig, select a plan and then you’re good to go – it’s that simple. Once connected to a Globalgig plan, you can immediately use the DWR-922 to check e-mails, surf the web, transfer data, stream media, make VoIP calls and send SMS messages. Globalgig 4G mobile broadband plans are excellent value, available month-to-month and there are no lock-in contracts, so our partnership means it couldn’t be simpler to get a 4G LTE VoIP Router and mobile broadband that is low cost, effective and efficient.”   The DWR-922 4G LTE Router lets users connect to their 3G/4G mobile connection with fast downlink speeds of up to 100 Mbps and uplink speeds up to 50 Mbps. The Router’s phone port also allows a handset to be attached enabling high-quality Voice over IP (VoIP) calls.   Partnering with Globalgig gives D-Link customers several advantages. In the first instance users can immediately expand the benefits of the DWR-922 by using it in Australia and having access to 83 countries across the globe. The quality of the DWR-922 and Globalgig’s 4G (Australia and UK) and 3G (rest of the globe) networks means users can share a business grade connection to the Internet. In a world where connectivity is king, using the DWR-922 in this way almost completely eliminates the possibility of being offline. The DWR-922 is also ideal for renters or students in temporary or shared accommodation.   Globalgig recently announced three new 4G mobile broadband plans - 4G Flexi, Go Europe & USA and Go Global (go to www.globalgig.com.au or see below for details) that start at just $4.99 for 250MB of data in Australia and offer options that include up to 10GB of data available in 84 countries. Globalgig’s plans and rates are some of the cheapest available in Australia (1GB is just $10) where extra usage is charged at 2c/MB and never goes above 25c/MB in any other country in the world.   The DWR-922 utilises dual-active firewalls (SPI and NAT) to prevent potential attacks across the Internet and WPA/WPA2 wireless encryption keeps users’ wireless networks secure and traffic safe, allowing them to securely share their 3G/4G connection without worrying about unauthorised users accessing their network.   To celebrate the launch of the DWR-922 and the new partnership, D-Link and Globalgig are giving away a DWR-922 4G LTE VoIP Router with $120 of additional mobile broadband credit, as part of a D-Link Facebook promotion (www.facebook.com.au/dlinkAUNZ).   The D-Link 4G LTE VoIP Router complete with a 4G SIM card and $30 credit in the box is available now online at www.dlink.com.au, selected stockists or in any Officeworks store for $249.95.   Globalgig 4G mobile broadband SIMs are available online and at 1400 retail outlets across Australia including Dick Smith, Harvey Norman, Coles, The Good Guys, Big W, Nuance Airport Duty Free Stores and Joyce Maine.   To find out more about why Globalgig is increasingly being used both domestically and internationally by business, personal and family travellers alike and to select a suitable month-by-month plan go to: www.globalgig.com.au   Globalgig mobile broadband plan details 4G Flexi Included data in: Australia All usage charged at 10c per MB in: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Sweden, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, USA, Vatican City.

Nuance duty free stores operator and Globalgig offer low cost overseas mobile broadband to avoid bill shock 2014-04-01T21:19:04Z nuance-duty-free-stores-operator-and-globalgig-offer-low-cost-overseas-mobile-broadband-to-avoid-bill-shock Nuance, one of Australia’s leading travel retailers and low cost mobile broadband pioneer Globalgig today have changed the way people can use their tablets and mobile devices overseas by making Globalgig’s low cost mobile broadband SIM cards available at Nuance’s duty free stores in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane airports. The Globalgig SIM on its Flexi plan means travellers can now use mobile data in Australia from 2 cents per MB, in the UK, USA and Ireland from 5 cents per MB, then in 36 other countries around the world for only 10 or 20 cents per MB (see countries below).   Globalgig Channel Sales and Marketing Manager Matt Farmer said, “This is a big day for Australian travellers and put simply it means they now don’t have to turn their data off when they go overseas. Many travellers simply don’t use data overseas as, until now, it’s been very expensive and often very complex. By using Globalgig’s low cost mobile broadband you can just put the SIM card in your tablet or mobile device and only pay for what you use.”   Data roaming and bill shock have been massive issues for Australians travelling overseas with many reporting huge bills upon their return to the country. Globalgig’s mobile broadband is the first service to take out all the inconveniences of using data overseas, particularly the cost, and enable it to be used in the same way it is domestically.   Farmer continued, “Data roaming can be a traveller’s worst nightmare. Often it is barred, with the big Telcos you have to pay upfront or additional costs to your usual mobile broadband plan, it’s complicated and horrifically expensive. We’ve done our research and you can be charged up to $3 a MB by other Telcos where our charges start at just 5 cents per MB!”   With Globalgig now being sold at Nuance Australia’s SYD Tax & Duty Free store in Sydney Airport and F1RST Tax & Duty Free stores in Melbourne and Brisbane airports, Australian travellers no longer need to worry about finding alternative solutions, such as buying a local country SIM or an expensive upfront roaming bundle or bolt-on, when wanting to use their unlocked tablets and mobile data devices overseas.   Nuance Australia’s Category ManagerShlendra Prasad Bilash said, “We’re always looking for new products and innovations which enhance our customers’ experience in our stores and meet their changing needs. For more and more travellers, having access to the internet via their tablet or mobile device is an essential tool when they travel abroad, regardless of whether they are travelling for business or leisure. This product is great value and gives customers a very convenient, easy and cost-effective solution to what has been in the past a confusing and expensive part of their trip planning.”   When travellers return to Australia Globalgig offers them a free switch to their Home & Abroad plan which gives customers all-inclusive mobile data for use in Australia, USA, UK and Ireland from just $9 for 1GB, plus access to the same additional 36 countries in the Globalgig network at the same incredibly low 10 cent or 20 cent per MB prices.   Matt Farmer concluded, “The only other advice we give people wanting to use mobile broadband overseas is to turn off software updates and change email settings from push to fetch. With those settings in place using Globalgig mobile broadband overseas is simple, low cost and convenient – you don’t need to turn off your data when you travel, you can use your tablet or mobile device like a local in 40 countries, you don’t need to worry about bill shock as you are paying low, flat rates per MB and you only pay for the data you use.”   Globalgig’s low cost mobile data service can be used by purchasing a $5 SIM starter pack at any Nuance airport duty free store. There are no lock-in contracts and you can switch between Globalgig plans month by month at no extra cost.   Outside of Nuance’s airport duty free stores Globalgig is also available online at www.globalgig.com.au, at Dick Smith and Big W.   To find out more about why Globalgig is increasingly being used both domestically and internationally by business, personal and family travellers alike go to: www.globalgig.com.au   For more press information contact Salvatore Di Muccio at Well Above on +61 412 64 99 64 or at salvatore@wellabove.com   More about Globalgig’s Flexi plan (only pay for what you use) 1.             Buy SIM for just $5 2.             Use mobile broadband in Australia for just 2 cents per MB 3.             Use mobile broadband in USA, UK and Ireland for just 5 cents per MB 4.    Use mobile broadband in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Iceland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Vatican City for only 10 cents per MB 5.    Use mobile broadband in Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Turkeyfor only 20 cents per MB   More about Globalgig’s Home & Abroad plan Globalgig’s low cost mobile data service is available as follows: 1.

In truth it's the way that mobile broadband should be and should always have been. Our new Home & Abroad plan is incredibly good value when you use it in Australia. Then, if you go overseas you still get that same incredible value in the USA, UK and Ireland – all part of the same data bundle. No need to contact us, change plans or any of the other inconveniences you have with other providers, you just use it. Then if you want to use our mobile broadband in one of our other 36 countries you only pay per MB for what you use, for example France and Germany now cost only ten cents per MB which is a fraction of the price of some of the major Telcos, so if you're downloading 5Mb it will only cost you 50 cents.”   Globalgig has always challenged what it sees as the unfair mobile broadband and data plans offered by major Telcos. With its new Home & Abroad plan Globalgig guarantees its customers do not have to buy bundles or bolt-ons or have to deal with lifting roaming bars or unexpected roaming costs.   Boardman continued, “Globalgig is breaking the rules for mobile broadband by including the USA, UK and Ireland in a domestic mobile broadband data bundle for the first time. Globalgig’s new Home & Abroad plan is a real game changer for customers as it offers them simple, low cost mobile broadband that they can use at home in Australia or on their travels with confidence and without the fear factor of using mobile broadband overseas.”   Globalgig as a company has gone from strength to strength in a relatively short period of time by offering its customers great value deals and by not indulging in the chronic overcharging that has been the norm in the mobile broadband and data industry, especially when travelling overseas.   Boardman added, “We like to think we break many of the conventional carrier practices and have effectively set a new bar for mobile broadband plans in Australia and overseas. Our new Home & Abroad plan gives people what they have been searching for - simple to use, low cost domestic and international mobile broadband without hassle or inconvenience. More and more customers come back to Australia telling us how surprised they were at how small their data bill was, despite having used Globalgig extensively overseas.”   Globalgig’s low cost mobile data service can be used by purchasing a $2 SIM card for your iPad or tablet or $49 pocket-sized Globalgig mobile WiFi hotspot that can connect up to five WiFi connected devices, including mobile phones, at any one time. There are no lock-in contracts and you can switch between plans month by month at no extra cost.   Globalgig is available online at www.globalgig.com.au and at Dick Smith and Big W.   More about Globalgig’s Home & Abroad plan Globalgig’s low cost mobile data service is available as follows: 1.In Australia, USA, UK and Ireland – $9 for 1GB per month - $19 for 3GB per month - $29 for 5GB per month   2.Internationally in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Iceland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Vatican City - for only 10 cents per MB (only pay for what you use)   and   Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Turkey - for only 20 cents per MB (only pay for what you use)   To find out more about why Globalgig is increasingly being used both domestically and internationally by business, personal and family travellers alike and to select the relevant month-by-month plan go to: www.globalgig.com.au   For more press information contact Salvatore Di Muccio at Well Above on +61 412 64 99 64 or at salvatore@wellabove.com     ***ends**   About Globalgig Globalgig, launched in December 2012, is part of theVoiamo Group which was founded in September 2007 by its CEO, Nigel Bramwell, a veteran of the mobile telephone world with over 27 years experience in the industry, along with several of the company’s key executives.   Globalgig’s low cost mobile data service can be used by purchasing a $2 SIM card or $49 pocket-sized Globalgig mobile WiFi hotspot (that can connect up to five users at any one time) and selecting the relevant month-by-month plan. www.globalgig.com.au New Dick Smith promotion gives $30 Globalgig Mobile Broadband credit with every new SIM enabled tablet purchased in store 2013-12-04T23:57:14Z new-dick-smith-promotion-gives-30-globalgig-mobile-broadband-credit-with-every-new-sim-enabled-tablet-purchased-in-store Dick Smith and low cost mobile broadband pioneer Globalgig today announced a unique promotion that sees every in store purchase of any new SIM enabled tablet come with $30 credit for any Globalgig domestic and international mobile broadband plan and a Globalgig SIM card, both at no additional cost. Globalgig Channel Sales and Marketing Manager Matt Farmer said, “Every SIM enabled tablet, including iPads, purchased at a Dick Smith store between 5th December 2013 and 31st January 2014 will receive a Globalgig SIM starter pack at no additional cost that includes $30 of credit to use with any Globalgig plan, anywhere throughout the Globalgig network.” Globalgig, who recently announced the expansion of their ultra-low cost 3G mobile broadband service to over 40 countries across the globe including the UK, USA, Hong Kong, Italy and Spain, have a proven track record of providing customers with top class value packages. Farmer added, “This really is an excellent deal and a no brainer for Dick Smith customers as Globalgig is already very cheap offering 3G mobile broadband in Australia from just $9 for 1GB per month and from only $19 per 1GB per month in selected countries internationally.

With Globalgig you can now choose a plan that provides 1GB of mobile data in Australia from just $9 per month and internationally starting from just $19 per GB per month for the Jetsetter plan, without changing any of your usual data habits. This means no more panic over data roaming or looking for the nearest WiFi when you land overseas, you simply connect to Globalgig and use your device as you would normally within Australia, whichever country you’re in.”   All Globalgig customers can use the low cost 3G data service by purchasing the small pocket-sized Globalgig $49 mobile WiFi hotspot that can connect up to five users at any one time, or a $2 SIM card that works with an iPad, iPad Mini, Android and Windows 8 tablet, smartphone or laptop.   Globalgig’s raison d’être came when Chris Shaw and Chris Eade, respectively co-founder and CEO of Direct Group, owner of Aussie home shopping icons including Innovations, Damart and TVSN amongst many others, seized the opportunity to launch Globalgig’s ultra-low cost mobile data service in Australia and now internationally.   Boardman continued, “Chris and Chris wanted to create a typical, fair-go Aussie consumer champion in terms of a mobile data service. No fixed contracts, no hidden charges, easy to use and above all extremely low cost. That’s how Globalgig truly enables you to use data on your mobile devices both domestically and overseas where other carriers financially punish you for it.”   The company has a raft of new technology, product and coverage releases coming in the near future but for now Boardman says the momentum is all around the 40 countries and further increasing coverage.   Boardman concluded, “We have a simple challenge for consumers and competitors alike - try us and see if you can beat us for value for money and international coverage. We have even more announcements to come around this but, just as an indicator an International Casual Traveller Data Pack from a major Australian Telco will currently cost you $1800 to use 2GB of mobile data overseas, whereas to use 3GB with Globalgig in 10 overseas countries can cost you as little as $35 on the Jetsetter plan – and no, that’s not a typo!”   You can now use the Globalgig low cost mobile data service as follows: 1.            In Australia – from $9 per GB per month   2.            Internationally UK, USA, Austria, Denmark, Hong Kong, Italy, Portugal, Republic of Ireland, Spain and Sweden - from $19 per GB per month   plus…   Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Latvia, Lichtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, New Zealand, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, San Moreno, Slovakia, Slovenia Turkey and Vatican City - for an additional 20 cents per MB (only pay for what you use)   To find out more about why Globalgig is being used increasingly by business, personal and family travellers alike and for a full list of plans and rates go to: www.globalgig.com.au   For more press information contact Salvatore Di Muccio at Well Above on +61 412 64 99 64 or at salvatore@wellabove.com
