York, May 30th 2012 - Cellhire has achieved over 3,000 voice and data rental connections for Euro 2012 by allowing clients to roam cheaply across Poland and the non-EU venue of Ukraine, which is excluded from EU caps on network call charges. The majority of connections are for large international media organisations including the BBC and BSkyB and competing football teams from France, Spain and the UK.
An increase in demand for data bundles has contributed significantly to overall orders with the majority taking an additional data bundle. Cellhire has negotiated with the local networks to offer large data allowances at highly competitive prices.
Cellhire will be providing on-site assistance for the Championships and will offer its usual high standard of customer care with 24/7 customer and technical support available throughout the tournament.
Tim Williams, Cellhire Chairman and CEO says, ‘Cellhire’s success at this particular event has been largely down to its unique relationships with European networks and the high applicability of the packages on offer. Providing such a high level of support coupled with significant savings on roaming has given Cellhire the competitive edge in 2012.’
According to a 2012 study by UK price comparison site uSwitch, the average user roaming in the Ukraine could face daily costs of up to £35 for ten minutes of calls, five SMS messages and a two minute voicemail. Cellhire’s equivalent cost would be under £4 – a difference of more than 88%.
The UEFA European Championships kick off on the 8th June with co-hosts Poland playing Greece in Warsaw.
