Tele2 has become the first Swedish operator to provide support for the new eSIM technology in Windows based devices.
Laptops and tablets with eSIM will be able to connect to internet anywhere, without any additional hardware, directly via the Mobile Plans application preloaded in Windows 10.
Starting now, laptops with the latest version of Windows 10 and an embedded SIM (eSIM) chip will be able to connect to Tele2’s net anywhere, at any time. The technology is expected to be included in most future laptops and tablets, with an increasing number launching during the second half of 2018.
This is clearly the next step for a simpler and more connected life. eSIM makes it possible to connect your device to internet anywhere, without the hassle of having to bring additional equipment, tether using your mobile phone, or scout for a WiFi zone,” explains Joacim Rask, Head of Business Development at Tele2.
”The kinds of devices with internet connection increase every day. We already see connected cars, glasses and even dog collars, but nearly everything will be part of the future connected society. Tele2 plays a part in this evolution, as this eSIM cooperation with Microsoft clearly exemplifies,” added Rask.
The range of laptops and tablets with eSIM chips is still limited on the Swedish market, but is expected to increase rapidly during the coming years. At the same time, Tele2 will continue to develop support for other kind of devices and technologies.
