Don't let distance get in the way of business

In a global economy, organisations are more connected and collaborative than ever. We’ll work with you to find the right international roaming solution for your organisation to help keep your people in touch across the globe. 

Things to do before you go overseas


Check to see if we support international roaming at your destination and view available solutions and our Pay-As-You-Go rates for each country.


Confirm with your organisation as to what their international roaming policy is. Then, if you need to, activate International Roaming on your compatible mobile phone or broadband service. Remember to do this before you depart as there could be delays if you activate when you are overseas.
