When Truphone launched their Local Anywhere service, which allows you to use your phone in multiple countries as if you were running a local SIM. Having originally launched with support for US and UK, I’ve already covered the announcement of adding Australia (see here), and now they have announced the addition of two more countries; The Netherlands and Spain. These are the result of partnerships with and Orange (respectively), and should come on stream in the Autumn. As with all countries, you will be able to add a local phone number to your SIM giving benefits to your callers (local number wherever you are in the world) and to those you call in terms of low call rates and providing an easy local contact number to be rung back on.
It’s nice to see Truphone continuing to expand, and it’s likely that we’ll see more announcements before the year is out.
