MAXRoam updates service

Irish ‘disruptive mobile telecoms’ startup MAXroam (previous stories) has just completed a large update to its service. To its roaming clientele who want to save money on mobile calls while overseas, it now offers live billing, the ability to add local fixed line numbers to a MAXroam sim from 52 countries, free call forwarding and SMS for 5 cents anywhere in the world. They are working on various other improvements to the service including USA roaming, more countries, and are starting more offices globally (more details here).
