As Economy Tanks, Consumers Turn to Web-Based Calling

By Jessica Kostek, TMCnet Channel Editor


With today’s economy being what it is, people are looking to find ways to save anyway they can. For those who make international calls regularly have probably dwindled in their call making or have turned to alternative ways to communicate internationally.

 
One such way is with VOXOFON, a low-cost international calling service. Beginning at 1.3 cents per minute with no additional fees, users play only for the minutes used. Similar in design to the built-in iPhone (News - Alert) phone dialer, VOXOFON has been called "one of the coolest new phone services" by several industry publications due to its variety of easy-to-use service options and named by VoIP News (News - Alert) as one of the best services to use during the economic downturn. For the iPhone or Android phones, users can download the Mobile Voxofon application to use on their phone.
 
Users are able to make phone to phone and PC to phone calls through the VOXOFON website. Call even cheaper by using a calling card through or send a text message to more than 700 networks in over 200 countries.
 
Even create a virtual number, “The calls coming to these virtual numbers can be forwarded to a phone anywhere in the world. The person calling the virtual number will pay only for the local call within his/her country. The call will be forwarded to your phone at our low calling rates. If you have friends or family in another country, you give them a very convenient way to reach you. For a business, this is a cost-effective solution for establishing a presence in another country,” states the website.
 
Alexey Goloshubin, president and CEO of VOXOFON, said he has seen a marked increase in use of the international calling service as people become more budget-minded. "Everyone wants excellent service at reasonable prices, and VOXOFON can provide that and more."
 
There is no need to download any software to use the service, just plug and play.
