With Truphone, guests will be able to download the Manet app to their own devices and be seamlessly connected at the touch of a button.

In 2018, Truphone launched the world’s first end-user app to offer global connectivity for eSIM-enabled smartphones. Today, Truphone Connect has evolved into a powerful connectivity management platform, allowing Truphone partners to integrate similar functionality in their own apps, utilising any distribution channel and connecting any device, whether this is a smartphone application or a custom-made device.

Scott MacKenzie, Head of Product Management at Truphone says: “This new partnership is yet another exciting example of how Truphone’s technology is digitising a key industry. We’re thrilled that our Truphone Connect product has enabled Manet to future-proof and streamline its offering to customers all over the world.”

A simple and innovative partnership designing a suited connectivity service for every traveller with an eSIM-equipped smartphone.”
