FOOTHILL RANCH, California, May 22, 2014 (Business Wire) – Emida, a leader in the global prepayment and value transfer market, is proud to announce its partnership with Touch Mobile, a U.S.-based MVNO aimed at disrupting the prepaid market with its new and unique pricing concepts for the prepaid consumer.
Touch Mobile offers premium-quality Android smartphones to all prepaid subscribers. Plans are 100% data-based, meaning that customers can stay connected through applications, emails, and web, without traditional prepaid data plan pricing. Moreover, calling, text messaging, and data are entirely unlimited while a customer is linked to a Wi-Fi network, preventing plan data from being consumed during these sessions. Plans start at $20 per month with wide coverage available across the U.S.
Emida will offer Touch Mobile recharge at thousands of its distribution points, nationwide.
“Emida is constantly searching for the most innovative, premium prepaid products for its distribution.” said Ron Kraft, VP/General Manager of North America. “We believe Touch Mobile’s offering affords the prepaid base a new and distinctive opportunity to obtain premium service at record-breaking prices. We are proud to add Touch Mobile to Emida’s product suite.”
“Touch Mobile is very pleased to offer its industry-leading products through Emida’s vast distribution. We are confident that Emida’s many years of experience within the prepaid space will complement our winning product strategies and will undoubtedly lead to an excellent partnership.” said Rich Wong, Senior Vice President at Touch Mobile.
