Truphone Enables Mobile VOIP
Overwhelming customer demand for the N80 download became evident following the launch in September of Truphone’s download for the Nokia E-series. Today’s announcement therefore represents a step-change in the availability of true mobile VoIP for the mass market.
There are no hidden or monthly fees for any Truphone users and calls between ‘on net’ Truphone handsets are free, worldwide. As a launch offer to the end of the year, USA users benefit from free calls to USA and Canada, while the unique UK telecoms market enables Truphone to offer UK users calls some two billion landlines in major countries for free. All other Truphone calls from the user’s mobile are billed at characteristically low VoIP rates.
“Support for Nokia’s N80 handset brings true mobile VoIP to the mass market and gives Truphone genuine consumer appeal,” said James Tagg, Truphone’s chief executive. “Truphone routes calls entirely via the internet ensuring the lowest possible call costs to consumers whether in their home country or travelling abroad, unlike ‘calling card’ services masquerading as mobile VoIP.”
