It is especially ideal for business travellers, for keeping in contact with business partners and customers, which avoids missing any important calls and the trouble of changing SIM cards. Thus, CITIC DataMall is one of the most convenient international mobile data traffic solutions available in the market. CITIC DataMall is an open platform structured to create a win-win partnership that supports mobile operators, virtual mobile operators, mobile handset manufacturers, OTT internet companies, financial enterprises, tourism companies, etc. These partners can use the innovative CITIC DataMall platform to provide a dynamic range of local mobile data services to customers, lowering the costs of international mobile data access.

A variety of "unlimited data" daily packages will be available on CITIC DataMall, it will issue a virtual local SIM card directly, so users do not need to subscribe to a WiFi service or purchase SIM card. Users will have various operators to choose from and the charges will vary based on service region, duration and traffic volume. CITIC DataMall is expected to further expand to other regions and countries such as Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore and Europe by the end of 2015.
