A Primer on Virtual SIM Cards and How They’ll Transform the Telecom Worldby Pixwireless Prepaid Owner
Along with mobility, SIM card technology has also evolved since 1991—that’s the year when these cards came into existence.
SIM cards have gone from the size of a credit card to classic cards or mini–SIM cards. Before long, these miniature versions of SIM cards began shrinking in size.
So, from a mini–SIM card, originated a micro SIM; and then eventually nano–SIM cards came.
However, now, we’re all set to forget the concept of physical SIM cards. Because, now, we’ve got an eSIM card that’s commonly known as a virtual SIM card. The concept of virtual SIM card was presented for the first time in 2016’s Mobile World Congress.
Up next, let’s explore the different benefits that an eSIM card brings on board.
The benefits of having virtual SIM cards
The biggest advantage of having an eSIM card is that its customers will be able to change their operator anytime. This change will happen without getting a new card from a new operator. So, a virtual SIM card will save a lot of hassles.
An eSIM card will be always compatible with different telecom operators.
A virtual SIM card will even let you save a truckload of money on roaming cost. How? See when you travel abroad, you often receive a bunch of offers from the new country’s local operators. So, when you’re having a virtual SIM card, you’ll be able to join that operator at local rates and call or browse the web affordably.
The eSIM card will even allow you to run more than two phone numbers on the same smart device. That basically means you virtually get dual–SIM card support.
And, last but not least, the devices that’ll run eSIM cards won’t have any physical card slot. Means, smartphone manufacturers, or their OEMs, will have a lot of free space inside the device. This free space can be used for incorporating new tech.
Now, that you know a lot about virtual SIM cards, it’s time to know which company is offering the best deal in virtual SIM cards.
It’s none other than Pix Wireless.
