Mobile Vikings: A new Belgian Operator

with 9 comments

About a week ago CityLive released a new initiative: Mobile Vikings, a Belgian mobile operator offering free mobile internet!

Everybody has the right to have drinkable water, energie and education. We think having free acces to information and digital information is also a right everybody should have.

– Mobile Vikings


CityLive is thinking big, the Mobile Vikings initiative is part of something more!

1) Mobile Vikings: free mobile data

At first they will start with providing free mobile internet acces (1gb). On top of that they offer acceptable sms and call rates ( € 0,24 / MIN  | € 0,10 / SMS ). For a 15€ card you even get 1000 free text messages.

2) Mobile Social Networking: Lifeline

To stay in touch with your friends and family you need to now what they are doing. LifeLine is a mobile service that will provide facebook, myspace, twitter & wordpress functionalities on your mobile phone. This service will launch at 1/02/09.

3) Interaction with the world around you

CityLive is also preparing a set of tools and services for local organisations, hotels, restaurants, bars, … Using these tools these organisations are able to create mobile services at the right time, focussing on the right type of user profiles. Transaction management, mobile payment and even a doctor’s appointment are a examples of mobile services that can be created!

If you are interested and want to know more you can always go check out the homepage! If you want to be a mobile viking you need to request an acces code or you can send me an email because I have 10 invites left. First come, first serve: thomas.joos[@]

  2. I do not really have any experience but I think for you switching could be very interesting as the sms and call rates are around the standards (in Belgium ). The free mobile internet is (1gb) a big plus imo! Definately worth checking, if you want an invite I still have some left…

  3. I believe the internet is EDGE, not 3G. This makes it a lot less interesting for me :(.

    • @geiar: I noticed you are from Italy. I think you need to be living in Belgium to be able to use this service. If you do please shout, I have a few invites left..
