Microsoft to offer Mobile Data plans in several countries
Cellular Data app spotted in the Windows Store, requires a SIM card
The company is planning to offer data plans in a few key markets, according to an app listing. Cellular Data app for Windows 10 devices will allow you to connect to a trusted nationwide mobile data network using only your Microsoft account.
Microsoft will initially launch the service in the United States, United Kingdom and France, but other markets could be added in the future.
Specific Windows 10 devices will need a “Microsoft SIM card” in order to connect to the network. All customers will be able to purchase data plans via Windows Store and use it anywhere when the network is available.
So, Microsoft will soon become a virtual network provider, and Windows 10 users will be able to use high-speed Internet without contracts.
