XCom Global Low Cost Wireless Internet Access Rental Services For International Travelers
|XCom Global, Inc., a leading provider of low cost wireless Internet access rental services for international travelers, announced today it will be offering special, membership pricing for the month of May as a preview of one of the benefits of the new membership program that will be launched in June. MiFi Hotspot rentals now start at $14.95 per day (instead of $17.95) and USB rentals are $12.95 per day (instead of $14.95). Long term use (over 14 days) discounts are also available and shipping fees will be waived on orders placed 10 or more days in advance.|
Even greater savings will be had by those traveling to multiple countries. The second country rental unit will no longer incur an additional fee when it is not in use. For example, it you are taking a 14-day trip to Germany and France, you will pay only $14.95 per day for your MiFi Hotpsot rental for the entire length of your itinerary, even though you have two MiFis in your possession. If you are traveling to three or more countries, you pay only a flat $30 multi-country surcharge for each additional country/rental unit which covers the complete duration of your trip.
"Our goal is to give international travelers fast, reliable 24/7 Internet access at the lowest cost possible," said Seiji Nishimura, CEO, XCom Global, Inc. "We are always working toward that end – in our negotiations, in our operations, in everything we do. We are pleased that we have been able to lower our pricing, saving travelers even more money on international data access charges."
