Primetel and Telenor have signed an agreement for the Global LTE Roaming Exchange. This new partnership provides Primetel customers with industry leading 4G roaming coverage to ensure an enhanced user experience.
While travelling, roaming customers show an increased demand for services, be they international calls, multimedia content, downloading applications and accessing email or social media. The LTE Roaming Exchange provides cost efficient, quality of service and flawless customer experience for roamers.
