Broadened MiRoaming coverage with Xiaomi and Telna

BEIJING, China — February 22, 2018 — Telna, a global provider of end-to-end connectivity solutions, and Xiaomi, the global electronics company, today announced their partnership to provide expanded international roaming coverage through the MiRoaming virtual SIM platform.

Launching first to over 100 million users from mainland China, the newly broadened coverage will be available on all current Xiaomi smartphone models. This will enable access to seamless 4G LTE and 3G data roaming in more international destinations including in Europe and North America.

“This partnership is another step in our constant effort to deliver the best possible experience to our Mi fans worldwide,” stated the Xiaomi Roaming team.

From a company with a truly fan-focused mantra, the Mi Roaming app is one of the value-added solutions offered by Xiaomi. It enables users to connect to roaming data on-demand via virtual SIM technology. Users benefit from a device-integrated experience and truly affordable unlimited data rates.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Xiaomi—an industry leader in consumer technology,” said Gregory Gundelfinger, Telna CEO. “Our global decentralized network has local data breakouts wherever the Xiaomi user is traveling, providing a local data experience with lower latency and faster LTE data speeds. It’s a superior experience to any other network technology available and a breakthrough in data roaming technology. We are excited to introduce this technology experience to Xiaomi customers.”
