Access to mobile service is something that many individuals tend to take for granted these days. But for refugees, this is very critical for them. It was discovered that whenever refugees first arrive in a new country, they use the very limited cash they have with them to purchase a SIM card. They use this to make their families back home know they are safe. In addition to that important phone call, they use mobile service to get in touch with potential employers, communicate with friends and family, find information, and even see maps of their new neighborhood. It also gives them access to support provided by groups like Ads-Up.
With their phone acting as their only source of internet service, having access to unlimited data is important. This is where the MVNO steps in.
