Two heads are better than one; GeoSIM prepping Dual IMSI SIM card

UK-based mobile service provider Geodesa Limited just made a pretty exciting announcement and we can only hope this is the start of a continuing trend. For those unfamiliar with Geodesa, the company’s core product is the GeoSIM — a SIM card with attached service that does away with insane international roaming charges across a pretty massive expanse. It’s newly announced upcoming product, the GeoSIM Dual IMSI SIM card, will take things one step further and provide two local phone numbers — initially one US and on UK number — on a single SIM, thus facilitating free incoming calls in both regions and hugely discounted outgoing calls / SMS. Blurb time:

We are really excited about this ‘market shaking product’ which is generating a great deal of interest from customers and resellers already. In the past, travellers roaming on a US network have had to pay for incoming calls on their mobiles and paid higher charges for making calls. From mid April, all that will change when we roll out GeoSIM Dual IMSI. The USA will effectively become part of Europe in terms of the GeoSIM call rates and free incoming calls. GeoSIM customers will be able to call and receive at the current rates available in Europe or the US no matter which side of the Atlantic they are on.

Interest piqued, frequent fliers? Yes, ours is as well. The GeoSIM Dual IMSI SIM card (guys, work on that name a bit please) will launch in April and we’ll definitely keep an eye on Geodesa to see how the service is received and when it might expand in terms of available number locales.
