DR Congo: Africell launches virtual SIM card

(Ecofin Agency) - Mobile operator Africell makes a breakthrough in the technology segment launching virtual SIM card in DR Congo on July 18. This computerized chip, CEO Milad Khairalla (photo) said, will put an end to the problem of loss of SIM cards and contacts. With eSIM, contacts are stored directly on a virtual platform such as Google Drive or iCloud.

With eSIM, you have the possibility to scan several of your numbers and use the number you want in each country or under each circumstance. You can put 2 numbers or up to 10 numbers on your phone. You can also send a sim to your close relatives, even abroad, very easily,” said Milad Khairalla.

To send eSIM to a relative, Africell's CEO indicated that one just needs to purchase an eSIM with a QR code, currently offered free of charge in the telecom operator's shops under certain conditions, and send it to the recipient. The latter will only have to scan the QR Code to obtain an eSIM on his phone. With this virtual chip, the recipient will be able to make and receive calls, and also use data.

Through this innovation, Africell’s subscribers will avoid the painful process of restoring contact directory after SIM card loss. In addition, the facility could attract more users to the company’s subscriber base.
