Love creates miracles!
Amr El Gebali, the Egyptian techie who fell in love with Arev, the Armenian traveler. They made plans to travel every 3 months. Their first trip to Georgia was great; they spent around 650 dollars on the trip itself and when they came back the roaming bill was shockingly 500 dollars. Being a techie who intuitively looks for solutions for every “bug”, Amr started to search in the roaming problem worldwide. He found out that the roaming fees paid worldwide were 57 billion dollars in 2013 and it will reach 90 billion dollars by 2018.
So, he figured out that the whole world population needs a solution. They started working on the idea and now it’s up and working. Their main market is Europe and USA and now they are officially a registered company in USA and Denmark. However, the larger support they received was from Egypt. They received support and fund from the American University in Cairo and an IT Accelerator called Ebni.
The idea is brilliant! They have also received two offers from telecom providers and already partnered with GigSky, the data roaming provider who basically provide sim cards and data roaming packages for travelers.
How does it work?
All you have to do is put your SIM Card into VoxEra (the device must be connected to the Internet) keep it at home and travel. On the other side, you should download Voxera application on your mobile and you’ll be able to call and text with the highest quality connection and no additional roaming fees.
