Brightroam by iRoam
Founded in 2006, Brightroam Inc began as a subsidiary of Roadpost inc, leveraging their 15 years of history in providing short term cellular and international roaming services. The goal of the company was to provide international roaming services to North Americans, both to undercut roaming rates for GSM subs and to provide services to CDMA subscribers. This would enable a more convenient and cost-effective solution for travelers than buying prepaid at destination. Brightroam based its business plan around key factors such as highly Web-enabled automated sales, provisioning and customer service platform to reduce costs and pricing.
