Telecommunications firm Top Connect (www.topconnect.com) today announces a 21% increase in free Skype calls to TravelSim (www.travelsim.com) users currently at the World Cup in Brazil since the quarterfinals were played.

According to a traffic analysis run by the telecom on Monday this month on the upsurge, 11% of fans at the World Cup receiving free Skype calls to their mobiles were German users, 6% were to Holland users and 4% went to Argentina fans.

Staying in touch with football fans in Brazil can be costly. However, thanks to a unique relationship with Skype, the call back TravelSim roaming card is saving German, Dutch and Argentine users thousands of dollars in communications costs.

TravelSim is the #1 travel SIM provider in the world with over 4 million users. An easy to use prepaid call back service, the roaming service is designed to greatly reduce the cost of using mobile phones when travelling overseas. It is proven to save customers up to 85% on making calls while abroad and can be used in 190 countries around the globe.

Outgoing calls and texts will also be affordable with TravelSim in Brazil thanks to its agreement with local network operator TIM. An outgoing call will only cost €0.69/min, while an outgoing text is €0.35 per text and incoming texts are free.

“Which country will win the World Cup 2014?” quips Mikhail Markin, Head of TravelSim’s Product Development. “Well, fan support is a team’s 12th man on the pitch so according to our Skype traffic statistics, it’s Germany!”
