announces that all new and current subscribers to the company’s flagship product - Globe Dialer - will receive half-priced international holiday calling to all nations in its worldwide network in addition to the eighty percent savings already provided to customers.
Globe Dialer is a proprietary software application that is downloaded directly onto mobile phones running on virtually any network that allows the user to make convenient, low-cost, “one click” international calls. By routing international phone calls onto Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) networks, Switch-Mobile is able to reduce the cost of mobile, international calls by up to eighty percent, while only using the domestic minutes of each user’s plan. For the holiday season when travel and international calls to loved ones spike significantly, the company will provide its subscribers with a 50% worldwide calling discount on Christmas Eve and on Christmas Day.
“We want to increase the value our service provides, particularly at a time when more people are calling internationally,” said Jenny Fielding, COO of Switch-Mobile. “As a result, international calls that can cost as much as $1.49 per minute will be dramatically reduced to a few cents per minute for many calls made to over 200 countries.”
Switch-Mobile is powered by a traditional telecommunications network and innovative VoIP technology. All calls are placed to a local number, which automatically routes the call through Switch-Mobile’s network to its destination country; by doing so, cell phone users avoid paying their carrier for the high cost of the international part of the call. To further increase its value, Switch-Mobile allows consumers to link one additional mobile or landline number to each account; for business accounts, the company also offers the ability to integrate its service into landline office phone systems.
