Microsoft has launched its latest Cellular Data App. This App is available at Windows Store. But this App is of course surrounded by certain mysteries which remains unexplained by the developers of the app. Some of the people vies this launch as a move of Microsoft to launch its own Microsoft Very Own SIM card. MVNO SIM card is considered as a step towards ensuring that laptops remained connected towards internet even if there is no WiFi connectivity. In short it means that it allows Windows 10 supported systems to connect to LTE connectivity automatically.
Reasons to believe that Microsoft is going to Launch MVNO SIM cards
With the launch of Own Cellular Data App, rumour of launching own MVNO SIM card by Microsoft has become somewhat confirmed. This is because of some of the below given reasons. Microsoft has already began the testing of its latest App’s ability to get Windows 10 devices to get connected to internet with the help of connectivity providers, that too without having any contract with them. Another reason is that even though the app is placed in Windows stores for download, it becomes functional along with Microsoft SIM card only.Another reason behind the rumours is the unavailability of precise information regarding the regions in which Microsoft is going to launch its services. These above said reasons pointed out the fact that Microsoft has launched its Cellular Data App only with an intention to launch MVNO SIM card. MVNO SIM card from Microsoft facilitates the Windows 10 users to get connected to internet with the help of its partners. This also might pave way for Microsoft to enter contracts with other operators to manufacture their own SIM card which is suitable for Windows 10 devices also.
Other Players in Similar Path
The move looks similar to that of Apple, which launched its own SIM card and also with Xiaomi, which launched its own MVNO SIM card. This is going to be a revolutionary move in the laptop manufacturing industry. The major manufactures of laptop will now be forced to insert SIM slots within them. This also helps the users to have uninterrupted internet access especially in the places where WiFi is absent. The folks around the world also expect that Microsoft will keep the connectivity charges to the minimum.
MVNO can be best explained as a wireless communication service provider who does not own its own wireless connectivity network infrastructure. Instead the company leases out the network infrastructure from them for a sum of money and provide it for a reasonable subscription rate to the users.
