New Delhi, July 12th, 2017: Matrix Cellular, the largest country specific SIM card provider offering voice, data and SMS services under the brand “Matrix” to travellers outbound from India, with a majority market share (Source: Frost & Sullivan Report on “Assessment of the India Outbound International Roaming market”) has announced first of its kind international SIM Card packages for students travelling to the US and the UK this summer for studies. The new prepaid plans from Matrix will help students save enormously on their communication expenses while studying abroad. The prepaid plans are available for as low as Rs. 1999 for USA and the UK. The prepaid plans offer bundled benefits and freebies such as free incoming calls, free local calls, free calls to India, free data usage and free texts. A copy of the student visa is a mandatory KYC requirement for buying these SIM cards.
Speaking about the new offering, Gagan Dugal, Director said, “Matrix has been at the forefront when it comes to understanding customers’ requirements and have always believed in providing best of the offers to our customers. This year we wanted to offer something unique and special to students and the launch of student packages is another example reiterating our commitment of providing cost effective telecom solutions. As students prepare to leave for higher studies this summer they need to have the right service provider with them that can provide sufficient data and talk time to connect with their family and friends back in India.”
To make this student season more exciting and rewarding, Matrix this year has come out with a cool, ‘Get Free Data’ campaign for students traveling abroad. Students can participate in the campaign by purchasing a Matrix Prepaid SIM Card or by downloading the Matrix Travel Companion App. All they have to do is post a comment on their social media accounts with the branded hashtags #Matrixrewards or #Matrixtravelcompanionapp and get additional free data on the Matrix student mobile connection. (A student gets 500 MB free data for posting the hashtag on each of his social media accounts. So for e.g. if he/she posts the hashtag on 4 of his/her social media accounts, he/she will get 2GB free data).
