What is “international roaming” exactly?

Without getting too technical, international roaming services ensure that a mobile phone remains connected to a mobile network while the subscriber is abroad, or outside of the geographical coverage area of the home country network.

How is Comfone different?

Comfone is the only supplier in the roaming services market that offers all of the services required to establish international roaming between two mobile operators. This enables up to package all of the above elements together into one service, the Key2roam Platform.

When a mobile operator contracts all of the services from Comfone, the advantage is that all of the information can be easily consolidated and used to analyse costs, investigate different roaming behaviour and therefore increase revenues and reduce risks for the mobile operator.
