Packet8 Business Voice Expands with Launch of Virtual Trunking Services

8x8, Inc.Packet8 announces the introduction of Packet8 Virtual Trunking, a broadband agnostic IP trunking solution that allows a business to benefit from the cost efficiencies of VoIP while retaining their existing phones and phone system hardware and optimizing the use of their existing connectivity to the Internet.

Packet8 Virtual Trunking provides companies that have already made a substantial or recent investment in phone system hardware with an opportunity to reduce recurring monthly service and toll charges by delivering digital quality dial tone service over their broadband connection rather than a separate voice circuit from an incumbent or local exchange carrier. The company's existing phone system equipment continues to provide the user feature set while the Packet8 Virtual Trunking services provide dial tone together with local, long distance and international call routing services to that equipment from the Packet8 digital VoIP network.

Rebtel Maintains Free Calling Service Between 47 Countries

rebtel_logo.gifRebtel is staying true to itself, its roots, and its customers. Free mobile calling between 47 countries is alive and well at Rebtel. No strings attached. No restrictions. And, no compromise on quality. Rebtel was created to give consumers worldwide an alternative to mobile operators' outrageous charges for making international calls.

How Rebtel works
  • Rebtel gives people local phone numbers in their country that connect them directly with their friends, family or work colleagues who live abroad.
  • By making all calls local, people can call each other as often as they like and talk as long as they want, for little or nothing more than the cost of the local calls.
  • That means, for example, Rebtel gives someone living in San Francisco a local San Francisco phone number that connects them directly to their friend or family member in London, and Rebtel gives the person in London a local London phone number to reach their contact in San Francisco.
  • Smart Calls: Free between 47 countries

Global Market for Consumer Telecommunication to Reach US$2 Trillion by 2012

paper.gifRevenue from consumer telecommunication network services will grow at a steady annual clip of about 5.7%, on average, over the next five years, reports In-Stat. The strongest growth will be in the broadband and pay TV sectors, but 60% of total revenue will be derived from consumer mobile services, the high-tech market research firm says.

In-Stat just completed some new research and aggregated it with a wealth of existing research to produce a detailed quantitative analysis of this important market. “The digital divide will continue to grow. By 2012 broadband penetration in developed countries will exceed 85%, while developing countries languish at less than 10% penetration,” says Keith Nissen, the analyst who authored the report. “Over the next five years, 150 million PSTN lines will be eliminated, yet total voice revenue worldwide will remain steady. The ME/AFR and CALA regions will experience high mobile subscriber growth. Mobile operators in developed nations must look to new 3G applications and bundled services for increased ARPU. Despite the anticipated rapid growth of telcoTV services, in 2012, 73% of total payTV households worldwide will still be cable TV service subscribers.”

Challenger Mobile Expands Presence and Focus in Asia/Pacific

challenger_mobile_logo.gifChallenger Mobile announces the opening of the company's new offices in Singapore. The announcement follows on the heels of the recent hiring of two key Challenger Mobile executives and a commitment to a significant Asian marketing partnership.

According to Gartner Inc., while worldwide sales of mobile phones increased by 13.6 percent from Q1 2007 to Q1 2008, sales in the Asia/Pacific region increased by 26.6 percent, nearly twice the worldwide growth rates, over the same period. Most Asian countries remain strong markets in large part because mobile phones are the primary means of communication for many individuals. Mobile VoIP is well-suited for these markets because it offers significantly lower costs for roaming, long-distance and international calling, and international calls are commonplace for many Asians.

sipgate Opens iPhone to Third-Party VoIP Services

sipgate announces the immediate availability of a free application for the iPhone, which, for the first time allows consumers to natively use any VoIP service which uses the industry standard SIP. Consumers can now use their iPhones to make and receive VoIP calls from their devices over a Wi-Fi Internet connection using a wide variety of VoIP providers. The VoIP-enabling software is available from sipgate's website.

With the sipgate service, users can dial any number without using minutes from a wireless plan. This is particularly useful when calling to or from other countries, as call costs can be as high as $3 per minute. However, when using a VoIP service, costs can be kept as low as $0.01 per minute. sipgate is giving new users 111 free minutes for domestic calls for users to test out VoIP usage on the device.

Another benefit of sipgate is that consumers can use any domestic or international number provided by their VoIP service on their iPhone. This means that they can make and receive calls from different domestic and international numbers, all on a single device.

I could hardly contain myself when I saw this press release come across the wires: Bat Phone meet the PizzaPhone!

An exciting alternative to the traditional ties and wrench sets that often appear at this time of year, the PizzaPhone is a unique gift for Father's Day, Graduation Day or almost any day.

It can be easily programmed to call a favorite pizzeria, and the number is dialed as soon as the handset is lifted. If another restaurant becomes the new favorite, it takes just a few seconds to re-program the phone's memory. A manual-dialed PizzaPhone is also available.
