Tele2 announced that it become the first Swedish operator to provide support for the new eSIM technology in Windows based devices, in partnership with Microsoft.

Laptops and tablets with eSIM will be able to connect to internet anywhere, without any additional hardware, directly via the Mobile Plans application preloaded in Windows 10.

With the partnership between Tele2 and Microsoft, laptops with the latest version of Windows 10 and an embedded SIM (eSIM) chip will be able to connect to Tele2’s net anywhere, at any time. 

The technology is expected to be included in most future laptops and tablets, with an increasing number launching during the second half of 2018, says Tele2. The range of laptops and tablets with eSIM chips is still limited on the Swedish market, but is expected to increase rapidly during the coming years.

This is clearly the next step for a simpler and more connected life. eSIM makes it possible to connect your device to internet anywhere, without the hassle of having to bring additional equipment, tether using your mobile phone, or scout for a WiFi zone.
