VIDEO : No reason to cut roaming data charges :T-Mobile

10 Apr

In the Barcelona Mobile world congress 2011, ZDNet made a video discussing the data-roaming charges with the visitors. What a great opportunity to talk about it in the industry’s annual gathering.

In the video you can see how to discuss the fees with a variety of industry players, including software executives, telecoms regulators and others. Most of them expressed frustration, but the best comments came from T-Mobile strategist David Gannon, who said that there is no business incentive for his company to cut its data-roaming rates, as there is no international regulator to make it do so.

Earth Hour 2012 @tripNETer

31 Mar

@tripNETer knows that we only have one planet. So we and you can make a little gesture to protect it. We will Participate in the world’s largest single campaign for the planet: Earth Hour 2012. It starts by turning off your lights for an hour at 8:30 pm on March 31, 2012 in a collective display of commitment to a better future for the planet.  Think what can be achieved when we all come together for a common cause.


Women prefer to surf the internet rather than sex

29 Mar

We’ve read an interesting statement about internet:

Researchers asked men and women to look at a list of everyday activities and then choose the three things that they could not live without for a month.

Both men and women selected the internet and sleep as absolutely necessary to get by, but disagreed on the third essential.

While men chose sex, women instead opted for showers.

The study, carried out by Women at NBCU, supplies growing evidence that women are starting to outpace men when it comes to technology, traditionally a male interest. The organisation provides marketing and research advice to advertisers.

That’s an amazing conclusion and if that is true, tripNETer may be a VERY useful solution for women to satisfy their (internet) necesities while traveling to spain! As for men, sorry but we don’t have your solution, you may have to ask somewhere else…

This year’s Mobile World Congress was a complete success for tripNETer. We completely sold out and we were lucky to had our service reviewed by many important technology bloggers.

The feedback was great and will help us improve our service.

Roaming Horror Tales – Mr Morrison paid £1537 bill from orange for 400mb

12 Feb

Mr Boyd Morrison from the UK said : here is a eu cap on data roaming of 50 euro then u get cut off, but if you take out a bundle then this cap is removed. I ended up with a £1537 bill from orange for 400mb , this is just bad business.
The cap should remain and the data you get should be what you ordered.

tripNETer is with you Mr Morrison, if you come to Spain we will give you 50% on our service and you will pay 2,99€ (£2,5) per day for all MB you want to use!
