Swisscom Mobile is launching a number of mobile data services to coincide with the Athens Olympics. As a result of a collaboration with SRG SSR idée suisse and Sport 164, the latest Olympics news will be posted on Vodafone live! and the mobile portal of Swisscom Mobile. Plus: Swisscom Mobile customers will now be able to download video clips of an event only a few minutes after it has taken place.
Updates on all the events are guaranteed thanks to the cooperation between Sport 164 and Swisscom Mobile. Mobile phone users can follow the excitement live with the Sport 164 live ticker. On top of this, a range of SMS and MMS services will be delivering results, background information and the latest pictures from Athens. Swisscom Mobile customers can choose from a variety of SMS and MMS subscription categories, for example "SMS Breaking News" (approximately five SMS messages a day at CHF 0.50 per SMS) or "MMS People" (approximately one MMS per day at CHF 1.20 per MMS).
Other products inspired by the Olympics (e.g. games and ringtones) are available now on Vodafone live! and the mobile portal of Swisscom Mobile under the heading "Top&Neu"?, subheading "Olympia 2004".
