Possibly following in the footsteps of Google with their “Google Fi” service, Microsoft seems to be doing the same with their new “Cellular data” app which promises to allow customers to purchase cellular data directly from the Microsoft store, rather than going through their wireless carrier. The data plans will be supplied by a “Microsoft SIM card”, available only to Windows 10 devices.
Now you can buy and use mobile data at your own convenience. This is the easiest way to get online using a trusted nationwide network. Purchase a plan via Windows Store anywhere network coverage is available. The Cellular data app can get you connected at any time with a secure, high-speed mobile connection.
This app is designed to work solely with specific Windows 10 devices and requires a Microsoft SIM card. Service is available in some markets and offers are for domestic plans only – international roaming offers will be available soon.
the app can be downloaded directly form the Windows store, however we still have no official word from Microsoft about the availability and pricing of these cellular data plans.
