Unlimited wireless carrier to offer direct links to latest scores and debut cricket wallpapers for easy phone customization
TORONTO, Feb. 1 /CNW/ - As the start of the ICC Cricket World Cup draws
near, Mobilicity today announced it will provide Canadian cricket fans
with direct online access to the latest match scores on ESPN and
Cricbuzz so they can keep tabs on their favourite teams on their
Mobilicity mobile phones.
The Cup will be held in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh from February 19
through April 2, 2011.
"Staying on top of the latest ICC Cricket World Cup scores will be a
click away on Mobilicity mobile phones," said Mobilicity Vice President
of Marketing Sara Moore. "Whether you're at work or at home in the
middle of the night, having direct mobile access is the most convenient
way to follow the standings."
Mobilicity will also debut cricket wallpapers on its unique,
customizable content portal on February 9th. The portal, which includes both multicultural and mainstream content,
enables customers to personalize their phones with a wide range of
ringtones, games and wallpapers.
More value than the Big Three carriers
Unlike Canada's incumbent carriers, which have become known for costly
contracts, credit checks, outrageous extra fees and surprise charges,
Mobilicity provides industry-leading value and the latest
handsets/smartphones on its state-of-the-art 3.5G network. Its
unlimited plans start at just $25/month while its top-of-the-line
unlimited plan, which includes unlimited data, is just $45/month.
Mobilicity also offers superior value through its global long distance
offerings. Its Unlimited Asia Add-On provides unlimited calling to
India, China, Hong Kong and Singapore when customers add the $20
feature onto any calling plan.
The company offers Multi-Minute Long-Distance Add-Ons, as well as very
competitive pay-per-use long-distance rates to countries, like
Australia, Bangladesh, Pakistan and New Zealand, starting at just three
cents per minute.
