PosteMobile rolls out new NFC-enabled SIM cards

Wednesday 16 July 2014 | 11:47 CET | News
Italian MVNO PosteMobile has begun replacing the SIM cards of its 3 million customers with new NFC-enabled ones as it continues with the process of launching as a full MVNO. The new cards will allow the operator to introduce a wider range of advanced services, including more secure e-payment through the mobile wallet available on the PosteMobile app. In addition, the newly available SIMs are for use on the Wind network, confirming the operator's abandonment of the Vodafone Italia network it has used since its launch in 2007. The new SIM cards are currently available in PosteMobile outlets
