Cellhire launches Cellhire On Demand to give businesses control over employees’ data roaming costs around the globe – while providing greater data allowances at lower cost

Experience at major events – FIFA World Cups, Cannes Film Festivals, UEFA Euro Finals and the London Olympics – laid the groundwork for the new service 

August 26th, 2016. York, UK. Cellhire – recently busy at the Rio Olympics with providing data and voice products and services to major media and other corporations – has launched Cellhire On Demand, which enables businesses to regain control over employees’ data roaming costs in 98+ countries worldwide.

Cellhire On Demand – www.cellhire.co.uk/ondemand – also provides greater data allowances at lower cost. Features include over-the-air SIM activation and deactivation, the ability to re-assign SIM cards to specific users at any time and a barring function to manage theft and loss.

The service operates via a secure online portal and a central pool of SIM cards and MiFi devices [small portable wireless routers] supplied by Cellhire, which businesses keep on site to ensure instant availability and abolish the need for multiple shipping charges.

Says Matt Bennett, Cellhire UK Managing Director, “Cellhire On Demand cuts costs, saves time and ends complexity. Further savings are achieved by the improved data allowances we offer at lower prices.

“It enables businesses to gain complete control over their mobile phone usage, including control over every connection and see an overview of all active data bundles at any time.”

Data sharing via MiFi  

Bennett continues, “Compared to the current process of businesses phoning their network provider to enable a costly roaming data bolt-on, Cellhire On Demand is a real step forward. Another plus is that data can be shared securely between multiple phones, laptops and tablets by using a MiFi.”

He adds, “Activating and deactivating data bundles leads to a reduction in data roaming costs and is easy to manage.  User organisations receive early high usage warnings with daily alerts and can reduce overage bills with the ability to automatically deactivate or renew data bundles once the bundle limit has been reached.”

Significant player

Cellhire is a significant player in the UK and globally in wireless communications, winning contracts to provide major media and other corporations with data and voice products and services at leading events including FIFA World Cups, Cannes Film Festivals, UEFA Euro Finals and the London Olympics.

“Our experience at these events, combined with the services we offer from our offices in the UK, USA, France, Germany, Brazil, Russia and Japan, laid the groundwork for Cellhire On Demand,” says Bennett.

Cellhire says new 4G MiFi will revolutionise how construction site offices operate in the absence of phone lines

September 4th 2015. York. Cellhire, the UK-based leader in international mobile telecoms solutions, has announced a 4G MiFi – a mobile, wireless router – that will revolutionise how construction site offices operate in the absence of phone lines.

“Many building sites have an office centre but no phone lines. Our 4G MiFi offering enables multiple smartphones, printers, tablets, laptops etc to be used just as they are in a traditional office,” says James Hepton, Head of Online & Marketing, Cellhire plc [cellhire.co.uk]. “On-site offices can have high speed phone line quality data communications and web access when they use a SIM with the MiFi.”

Where there is a poor or no 4G signal, the MiFi reverts to 3G. Further flexibility is provided by Cellhire’s SIMs, which come in 5GB and 8G sizes and can be hired for any number of 30 day slots.

“Construction companies can keep their MiFi and SIM for as long as they like on a rolling contract, which, given how long some construction projects can take, is a big benefit to them,” says Hepton.

The MiFi bills the user the monthly fee until it’s no longer needed and is returned. Cellhire’s SIMs are among the keenest-priced – and, in parts of Europe and internationally, the lowest priced – giving users a wide range of SIM options to choose from to suit their budget and destination.

The Cellhire 5GB UK SIM costs £19.99 for 30 days, and the 4G MiFi £19 for 30 days. The 8GB UK SIM is £29.99 for 30 days. Both SIMs are 4G when used with the MiFi, except if the MiFi has to revert to 3G. The prices include VAT, making them cheaper for VAT registered construction companies.
