Robi brings “My Drive” cloud-based data storage service

Robin brought the first telecommunications-based consumer cloud service, “My disc”, in the country.

The cloud-based player aims to solve the problem of limiting users’ data storage on their smartphones.

My Drive is a personal cloud solution that allows customers to back up and organize their data – photos, videos, music, documents, call logs and SMS.

Customers will also be able to log into their Facebook or Instagram accounts and sync photos to My Drive from Facebook or Instagram.

Local consumers often don’t buy space in international reader solutions because they don’t have access to credit cards.

Using Robi’s airtime balance, consumers can easily purchase data storage space in My Drive.
