TALLINN, ESTONIA, July 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- 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 call 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 callback TravelSim roaming SIM card is saving German, Dutch and Argentinian users thousands of dollars in communications costs.

TravelSim is the #1 travel SIM card 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 traveling 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 EUR0.69/min, while an outgoing text is EUR0.35 per text and incoming texts are free.

Skype is a freemium voice-over-IP and instant messaging service with 44% of its development workforce in Estonia, where it originates.

"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!"

TravelSim is a product of Top Connect focused on both the business and leisure traveller. It is the world leader in international prepaid roaming solutions and is proven to save 85% on international roaming charges as well as offering very competitive data rates. Unlike local mobile operator cards, TravelSim is made for use around the world in over 190 countries.

With exceptionally low rates on outgoing calls and free incoming calls in over 140 countries, TravelSim is the answer to the question "how to call cheaply from abroad." TravelSim currently has over 4 million users worldwide. For more information visit www.travelsim.com.
