International data roaming provider Basic Interpersonal Communication Skills is claiming a world first with the “major milestone” establishment of an intercontinental live 5G data roaming service between Swiss operator Swisscom and South Korean carrier SK Telecom.

Set up on 15 July, the 5G roaming service provides high-speed, ultra-low latency 5G data connectivity between the two continents, with the operators leveraging BICS’ 5G global IPX network.

The announcement follows a surge in demand for data roaming, which increased by 95% in 2018 according to data from BICS.

BICS says that, as subscriber appetite for seamless international connectivity continues to grow, 5G roaming is set to become an integral part of operators’ offerings, “enabling users to access data-rich services and high-speed data roaming wherever they are in the world”.

Mikaël Schachne, chief marketing officer and vice-president Mobility & IoT Business, BICS, said, “With over 50% of global data traffic exchanged over our global IPX network, BICS offers an unrivalled roaming coverage and quality to communication service providers around the world.

“Today’s successful implementation of a trans-continental 5G data roaming relation further endorses our position at the forefront of global mobility for people, applications and things.”
