CAPE TOWN – GSMA accredited global mobile network Truphone based in London has announced that it will partner with Rain to launch eSIM support in South Africa.
What is an e-sim?
An eSIM is an electronic SIM that doesn’t require a user to get the physical, plastic SIM card, instead, users will be able to get the virtual embedded equivalent.
The solution will employ Truphone’s GSMA-accredited eSIM provisioning platforms which are interoperable with other eSIM devices.
According to Truphone, No longer will people need to go to brick and mortar storefronts to get plastic SIM cards provisioned by individual operators—they can do it directly from their device. In line with Rain’s digital-first business model, this is a is a natural step.
