Back in March, my friend Pat Phelan gave me one of the MAXroam SIM cards that the company of which he is president, Cubic Telecom, produces. This trip to Ireland and the UK has been my first chance to use it, and I’ve saved a huge amount on mobile roaming charges as a result. (Full disclosure: Once I’d activated the SIM last week, Pat sorted me out with mobile numbers for the UK and Ireland, as well as some additional call credit. I’ve topped up twice since then.)
It’s been nine months this week since MAXroam debuted at Techcrunch 20 to much acclaim - nine months and more than one million dollars saved for MAXroam customers. To celebrate, MAXroam is offering a 9% discount on top-ups for the next 24 hours. Just enter the code 9MONTHS during the online top-up process to claim your savings.
For those who have the UK and Ireland numbers Pat assigned to me, please note that these will still work once I am back in the US: I will simply log into the MAXroam website and forward the numbers to my American cell phone. (Granted, I now have no fewer than six mobile numbers and just as many actual handsets, SIM cards coming out of my ears and many unread user manuals. Quite an embarrassment for a girl who’s not really into her gadgets.)
