Nokia's HMD Connect global roaming service will be discontinued

The recent resignation of HMD Global CEO Florian Seiche shook the Nokia mobile phone world. Florian Seiche is the CEO who brought the Nokia brand back to smartphones and tablets but has also tried to introduce some new services, such as the HMD Connect global roaming service, to make HMD Global more financially stable. This service enables HMD to offer users data plans that provide hassle-free connectivity in over 120 countries and over 600 networks worldwide. The service was announced back in 2020, however, it was recently announced that it would cease operations.

HMD stated on its official website that it will no longer issue new SIM cards to new or existing customers after November 15, 2022. The service will be permanently discontinued after December 15, 2022. All customers who did not fully utilize their data plan by that date will receive a refund.

With the resignation of HMD's CEO, management may begin to overhaul HMD's current business model, discontinuing some potentially distracting products. This is not expected to affect the part of the company that works with Nokia phones, but some could be fired or moved to other parts of the startup.
