Last week, Uber launched, in partnership with Surf, a telecom that offers white-label connection service solutions, Uber Chip, a prepaid cell phone plan in which the driver or delivery partner does not need to use their own data package to use the Uber Driver app.

In other words, the Uber partner will be able to receive and answer customer calls without spending on their own mobile internet plan. The plan is contracted on a quarterly basis and costs up to BRL 50.00 per month, with discounts of up to 60%, depending on the partner category in the Uber Pro benefits program.

According to Surf and Uber, the new product will be available only to partners in the city of São Paulo at that first moment; the expectation is that the offer will extend to the whole country until the end of 2021.
