, a provider of SIP-based global Internet telephony, announced the launch of TelTel-Out, which delivers high-quality PC to any phone, anywhere calling, and TelTel Call-Forwarding, a new call forwarding service that allows forwarding of incoming calls to any PSTN number or SIP URL. TelTel-Out and TelTel Call-Forwarding are both now available to TelTel's over 1.3 million users and through service providers via its popular SIP Virtual Network Operator (SVNO) program.
TelTel-Out provides better quality calls than traditional PSTN line calls. The new services use TelTel's managed SIP-based peer-to-peer backbone to optimize call routing and deliver crystal clear calls to virtually anywhere in the world.
In addition to high quality, TelTel-Out provides price competitive calls to 200 plus countries in the world. Frequently called cities worldwide are included as part of a "One-Rate, 2 cents per minute" calling plan. TelTel Call-Forwarding enables TelTel users to forward their incoming TelTel calls to any regular phone numbers. Pricing for TelTel Call-Forwarding is based on the same rates as TelTel-Out.
TelTel Call-Forwarding and TelTel-Out are available via "TelTel Credits," which are online credits that come in various denominations and can be purchased via the TelTel website. With TelTel credits, there is no need to purchase service subscriptions or pay separately for TelTel Call-Forwarding or TelTel-Out.
TelTel's popular SIP Virtual Network Operator (SVNO) program allows service providers and enterprises to immediately offer VoIP services like TelTel-Out and TelTel Call-Forwarding that are second to none in quality of service. This program has been successfully deployed worldwide and has proven to be a strong revenue generator for both enterprises and service providers.
"TelTel enters a new phase of delivering premium quality pay services to its users while maintaining its existing free PC-to-PC phone services," says Jack Chang, COO of TelTel.
