Veek to launch first free mobile phone service in Brazil

Wednesday 7 April 2021 | 20:30 CET | News
MVNO Veek has launched the first free mobile phone service in Brazil, reports Mobile Time. Veek Freemium customers receive 1 GB of data per month, unlimited calls and an SMS package in exchange for advertising. By the end of the year, the plan is to have 80,000 subscribers, but for the operation to be profitable with advertising, it will need a few million customers. Users have to download an app and order a SIM card, which costs BRL 50 to activate.
