SaskTel has just announced the launch of its digital mobile service branded as Lüm Mobile.
Lüm Mobile will be a fully digital mobile model that will support a self-serve wireless offering to customers with more affordable prices than a full-service model.
Lüm (pronounced loom) is pulled from the word illumination, notes the press release. Lüm Mobile has no monthly plans or monthly billing dates. Customers will buy a membership to get access to data at great rates that never expire.
With a membership, customers will not have to worry about losing unused data every month and will only pay for the data, calls, and texts they actually use. With the convenience of self-serve, customers can buy more data at any time. Customers will be required to bring their own mobile phone when they sign up for service.
“SaskTel’s introduction of Lüm Mobile is a new way of offering wireless service to the residents of Saskatchewan, all while enjoying the great coverage of SaskTel’s existing network,” said Don Morgan, Minister Responsible for SaskTel. “Lüm Mobile will let customers sign up, and modify their service through a mobile app, allowing for a more personalized cellular experience.”
