Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) is renowned for its ability to lower costs and providing a means for greater efficiency and high levels of reliability. A report by TechNavio shows the VoIP sector can expect healthy levels of growth over the coming years. netTALK, a telecommunications, consumer electronics and cloud technology company, announced its netTALK Duo WiFi (News - Alert) –the world’s lowest-cost wireless VoIP telephone device –is available in Canadian and U.S. retailers, as well as online at netTALK.com.
The netTALK Duo WiFi works anywhere with a WiFi connection and includes a free Canadian phone number, free voicemail to e-mail and live customer support. For $64.95, users get one year of service, three-way calling, free DUO-to-DUO calls anywhere in the world, videophone app and a flat-rate, low-cost international call plans.
“The launch of the netTALK Duo WiFi across Canada is a truly momentous occasion,” said Anastasios ‘Takis’ Kyriakides, president and CEO of netTALK. “Never before have Canadians had access to a portable wireless VOIP device such as this. Since it works anywhere there is a WiFi connection, netTALK Duo WiFi is far ahead of the competition, which is why throwing the switch and turning off high phone bills, forever, should be an obvious choice across Canada.”
