T-Mobile Powers MVNO Focused on International Calling

UltraMobile focuses on one particular underserved niche (particularly in the U.S.): SIM-only, bring-your-own-device services. U.S. prepaid users often have a focus on making international calls—‘back home,’ if you will—but prepaid operators are also moving strongly to offering unlimited domestic calling, so bundling the two makes sense. ….throwing in data as an option makes sense, as does its plans to offer smartphone-enabled mobile payments with a focus on the types of mobile money services the ‘unbanked’ need—such person-to-person money transfers. UltraMobile represents a textbook case of an MVNO leveraging a variety of mobile technologies, services and devices in a new way to target an underserved niche in a very targeted manner. – Rich Karpinski, Yankee Group

New T-Mobile MVNO Ultra Mobile is a Good Deal for International Callers and Pay As You Go Data Fans

New T-Mobile MVNO Ultra Mobile is a good deal for international callers and Pay As You Go data fans…. Ultra’s PAYGO plan looks like a winner. The data pricing is the best I’ve seen from any operator and is the first reasonably priced pay as you go data from a GSM operator. I’d say that if you make international calls, Ultra is both more convenient and the better deal (than Simple). Another good deal is Ultra’s $29 Unlimited Talk & Text Plan, which is lowest I’ve seen for unlimited with a US GSM carrier. – Yeswap, Prepaid Phone News
