has surpassed 1.5 million downloads of its mobile VoIP dialers. This comes on the heels of announcing record call completions, SIP-terminated voice minutes, mobile VoIP calls and minutes of use for the sixth consecutive quarter. For the year ending in 2010, TalkFree completed over 280 million calls and exceeded 1.5 billion SIP-terminated voice minutes over its network.
TalkFree was founded in 2003 as an international VoIP service provider. In 2009, the company launched 1LegCall, its first mobile VoIP dialer, and began marketing it through its vast network of resellers operating primarily in Middle Eastern and African countries. 1LegCall was specifically engineered for Nokia cell phones, the most popular brand in these markets. In the first month, thousands of migrant workers and citizens in developing nations downloaded the software and started making calls. Since then, in just six business quarters, TalkFree’s mobile VoIP traffic volume has grown by more than 800 percent.
Earlier this year, TalkFree integrated Short Message Service functionality into its mobile VoIP platform so customers could send international SMS messages at a fraction of the rate charged by traditional wireless carriers. The company also launched a second mobile VoIP dialer called Zonefone, and upgraded and expanded its core infrastructure to support hyper growth from its primary markets in the Middle East and Africa, as well as targeted growth in Southeast Asia, South America and Central America.
TalkFree has deep experience with providing VoIP and mobile VoIP services to customers in developing nations. Moreover, the company meets the challenges of operating in developing and regulated markets by engineering unique virtual private network solutions that ensure reliable, quality service, and by offering a seamless payment system that doesn’t require a credit card or PayPal account.
TalkFree’s mobile VoIP products are resold by communications distributors, entrepreneurs, businesses, call shop and mobile call shop owners in more than 70 countries.
