Default All Belgium Base simcards soon to be deactivated - 11-06-2010, 19:22

Interesting news from Base KPN Belgium.
KPN Group Belgium, Base's parent company, said a number of unpaid bills was the real reason for swicthing network. The case is now before a court.

News in Dutch
Base vecht uitspraken directeur Tellink aan - Telecompaper

Base betwist de redenen van Michael Leiner van Tellink om met de MVNO over te stappen op het netwerk van Mobistar. Volgens Leiner beschikt Base niet over een goed 3G netwerk en zijn er geen interessante roamingakkoorden. Volgens KPN Group Belgium ligt echter een aantal onbetaalde facturen door Tellink aan de basis ligt van de beslissing. De rechter moet nu een oordeel vellen over het conflict. Ook zegt Base wijst dat 3G wel degelijk snel evolueert. KPN heeft afgelopen jaren 800 miljoen euro geļnvesteerd in het Belgische Base-netwerk.

Simcards based on +32 numbers as Maxroam, Celtrek, Clay Telecom, Searoam, Roamingsim, Travelnroam are concerned.

My Maxroam SIM still works, even on the BASE (Belgium) network itself. But it seems there will be a switch soon:
Quote:
Tellink, a Belgian company supplying telecommunication services to companies active in the SME segment, is concluding a MVNO agreement with Mobistar. From July, Tellink will offer national mobile voice and data services via the excellent Mobistar mobile broadband network. Tellink's 65,000 active SIM cards will be transferred to the Mobistar network from July. The transfer of all Tellink cards should be complete by the end of September. The continuity of service to all Tellink customers is assured during this transfer. All Tellink customers keep their mobile numbers.

I saw that MaxRoam did not offer the Belgium(Classic Sim/+33) any more. Now they offer UK(Global Sim/+44) with terrible rates.

I just got my Maxroam Classic Sim to replace my Celtrek card.

Boy this game is getting old. I hope they work things out.

It seems a bit ironic that one of the reasons given by the man from Tellink is better roaming opportunites. There are some other views expressed by one of the companies involved.

The Maxroam Classic SIM is still on offer in their webshop. There are differences between the Global (+44/UK) and Classic (+32/Belgium) cards. Take a look at the FAQ's, Coverage and Rates. It is still a mystery to me what will happen in the future with the +32 SIM cards!

Happy for anyone to test the quality on our new MAXROAM +44 service which we offer in conjunction with our +32 offering
lots of new features on the 44 service and lots of bundles/etc
If anyone would like a test SIM, I am always happy to receive emails from interested parties at pat@maxroam.com
Please note (to the admin team here) this is not a giveaway offer, just would be delighted to have "qualified" testers

We dont like old technologies here at MAXROAM
All our SIM cards are 3G/HSDPA

Why would a legit vendor sell a product aiming to be obsolete in next weeks?
Their UK SIM is a Callkey rebranded product. Rates are ridiculous.

According to Mobistar new agreement is for 3 years only. Pointless.

This game is pretty much over. Roaming is regulated in Europe. Prepaid offers from carriers are looking more attractive. Remains few markets in Africa and India with increased payment related issues. From a user experience callback days are almost over in Western countries.

I think not.

It doesn't use callback, as Pat Phelan mentioned above.

I can't say I'm attracted to a roaming rate of €2.99 a minute, where my UK networks would charge £1.00 or less. Perhaps that's a glitch or can be reviewed

Now you know why I hate joining in here, I think we are all aware of people with multiple accounts in here hiding their real face.
Our product is not Callkey rebranded or any other rebranding I am sure any one of the O Preys who are on here can confirm this
Cubic Telecom is now a fully licensed MNO
Not sure where the above pricing arises but if you want to check the below link
250 minutes with no callback in 43 countries with full 3G/HSDPA for €79 is pretty awesome value.
my email is above, if anyone wants a test card (they can check the IMSE themselves then , drop me a line but thats it for me.
thanks for taking the time
