Your credit cards: gone. Bus pass and train tickets: vanished. Those dog-eared loyalty cards for high street coffee shops: binned.
Welcome to Near Field Communications (NFC), a contactless, Wi-Fi-lite style tech that could already be in your smartphone, and could soon be a regular feature of your commute. NFC SIM cards are SIM devices that deliver card service functionality for NFC-compatible mobile phones in a secure, multi-application format. NFC-compatible mobile phones are continuing to grow in popularity around the world as the specs for this technology advances. Many other big phone companies have already released NFC SIM cards to their customers, allowing them to use the tap to pay feature with their NFC enabled phone. Koodo is not one of these companies. If they implemented these NFC SIM cards, it would only make payments in store for their customers that much more efficient. It is the way of the future, and Koodo could easily be offering an easier way to pay.
