 Luc Vidal, Head of M2M/IoT Business and Mobility Innovation at international connectivity enabler, BICS. commented:

This is an interesting move from Revolut and one that could ignite the eSIM market with more digital-first businesses looking at including eSIMs as part of their offering. It may not be long before it is commonplace for consumers to have multiple numbers linked to their device using eSIMs, which can be from different operators and serve different purposes. For example, one for personal use, one for travel abroad, one for business and even one for their favourite sports content provider”
