Telestial Offers International Travelers New, Affordable Data Bundle Options for Smart Phones

Corporations and Individual Travelers Benefit From Telestial Data Bundles That Allow for Easy, Price-Efficient Data Access From Smart Phones Across the Globe

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - May 29, 2013) - While traveling for business or pleasure is an amazing experience, it has a down side -- the high price associated with data charges on smart phones. For people who travel internationally, accessing popular social media sites like Facebook, or even keeping in touch via e-mail, can be pricey. Telestial (www.Telestial.com), an innovative developer of telecommunication solutions for people who travel, is now offering a game-changing innovation to international travelers: data bundle options (https://www.telestial.com/view_product.php?ID=MSIM-ONRT) that make it both easy and affordable to access their online world from their smart phones whenever they travel across the globe.

Let's face it -- it can be tricky to estimate how much data you're going to use (http://www.telestial.com/data-usage/). These new data bundles help you to keep costs reasonable without sacrificing your online activity. Here's how it works: the data bundle options -- which are available in $49, $69 and $119 increments -- allow globetrotters to keep in touch with family, friends and colleagues through e-mail, social media like Facebook, and more, without worrying about astronomical roaming charges.

Better yet, when the data plans are purchased upfront, users can get up to 200% extra credit. For example, on the $119 data plan, users get a $357 credit. Depending on the bundle chosen, rates are as low as $0.13 per MB -- that's equivalent to 915MB in most of Europe.

"It's usually easy to predict how much a 2-minute phone call will cost, but it's not always easy to gauge how much data you'll use with an online activity," said Telestial Marketing & Product Manager John Assiter. "With the new data bundles from Telestial, customers know upfront how much data they can use, which helps to avoid any expensive surprise phone bills. What's more, the extra credit these bundles provide means they can surf the web, for longer, for less."

With rates comparable to what international residents enjoy, Telestial's new data bundles are perfect for both individual travelers and companies with employees who travel on a regular basis. In fact, for corporations, bundling with Telestial can often be just a fraction of the cost of using your domestic provider while roaming.

With offices worldwide in San Diego, Boston, London and Melbourne, Australia, Telestial provides customer service 24/7, 365 days a year in seven languages: English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Portuguese and Japanese.
