BICS provides voice and data roaming connectivity for Swazi Mobile

Mobile users in Swaziland to benefit from BICS’ Instant Roaming solution including voice roaming, 4G data services, and BICS’ point-of-presence in Johannesburg
BICS announced that it will be providing its complete range of voice and data roaming services to Swazi Mobile, Swaziland’s recently launched second mobile network. BICS has deployed its full roaming outfit to Swazi Mobile, enabling end-users to benefit from international voice and data services, SMS messaging, signaling, IPX and data clearing services.
There are around 250,000 inbound roamers in Swaziland, with a vast majority (around 98%) travelling from neighboring countries South Africa and Mozambique.
Mobile users in this region will not only benefit from BICS’ one-stop-shop roaming solution, but also its point-of-presence (PoP) in Johannesburg, South Africa, which means that regional traffic will be managed locally.
BICS’ local switching provides outstanding quality by reducing latency, which is critical in order to support 4G.
The immediate access to over 800 of BICS’ partners will give our customers the ability to roam like never before, and BICS’ PoP in Johannesburg will provide us with a competitive differentiation through service quality.
