Vivo reported its international roaming figures for the first quarter of 2018. According to the operator, there was a 147% increase in the use of mobile internet outside Brazil and a 34% increase in the number of customers using the smartphone abroad, compared to data from the same period last year.
TOP 5 of countries with the largest navigation in Vivo’s mobile network is format by the United States, Argentina, Chile, Mexico and Paraguay.
But the highlight is Russia, where it was up 486% over the period’s average. One of the factors influencing this point is the fact that the company offers roaming and free calls in the country to celebrate the World Cup, to customers of the Premium and V plans.
“Over the past two years, we have adopted a business strategy to simplify and make it easier to use the mobile phone abroad. Allied to this, the great sports competitions are a catalyst for the greater use of international roaming, before, during, and after the events. We observed this both in South Africa in 2010 and in London in 2012, especially in the use of mobile internet, and we must also observe in Russia. “
Those who do not have the packages that participate in the promotional period can still enjoy the Daily Travel Travel. With 4G services, voice, Wi-Fi and SMS, the plan is to pay a charged amount per day, only when the subscriber uses your smartphone. Prices are $ 39.99 for the Americas and Europe; and $ 59.99 for other locations.
