International franchise takes bmobile to the USA

Trinidad - TSTT and ezetop Ltd announced today the establishment of a new online and international distribution agreement for the sale of bmobile prepaid airtime at and in over 40,000 retail outlets in the USA. The bmobile airtime will be available through ezetop’s retail partners Blackstone, Touch-n-Buy and PaySpot, some of the leading and largest prepaid networks in the U.S.

“This agreement marks another milestone in the modernisation of the bmobile network which we are positioning as a flagship international technology product from Trinidad and Tobago” said Anthony Joseph, Executive Vice President Mobile Services at TSTT.

Bmobile International top-up allows bmobile customers staying in the USA to buy airtime directly from partner retailers in the USA and keep their accounts topped up. It also allows anyone in the USA to buy airtime and have it electronically credited to the bmobile account of someone still in Trinidad and Tobago. “In addition to benefiting recreational travellers, this is also a breakthrough solution for local business travellers who want more control of their roaming charges.”

David Shackleton, ezetop's Chief operating Officer said: "We are delighted to extend our international recharge services to bmobile customers in Trinidad & Tobago, the second bmobile country to become available across the largest global international recharge platform. This means that Trinidadians abroad can top up when they are abroad and can send instant support to their friends and families back home”.

The international top-up agreement comes closely on the heals of upgrades TSTT has been doing to its network. Joseph explained that over the past 6 months, TSTT had been quietly redesigning its mobile network so that its frequencies would be compatible with the North American GSM mobile frequency standards. “The bmobile network is in sync with other GSM networks in North America which makes it easier to travel with a bmobile phone between the Caribbean and USA and brings the Trinbagonian diaspora closer to home,” said Joseph.
