Rebtel Brings VoIP App to Windows PhoneBy:Michael Roden|July 20, 2012 at 4:02pm
Rebtel, the self-proclaimed, world's largest mobile VoIP company (after Skype) unveiled it's Windows Phone app, which allows smartphones running Microsoft's mobile platform to talk and text for significantly less. The app solves the problem facing many VoIP users looking to make free calls using data networks that aren't as robust as the carrier's voice network. Rebtel's app offers rates that are up to 98 percent lower than an average operator's, and up to 60 percent lower than current Skype rates. International VoIP calling is also cheaper with Rebtel, delivering cost savings of 60 percent over regular operator rates, with a local number network spanning over 50 countries. The low-cost SMS dividends have even more of a reach, with the ability to text contacts on the cheap in more than 196 countries.
“Today, we are thrilled to take the next step towards offering the most comprehensive suite of mobile apps for low-cost international calling by announcing Rebtel for Windows Phone. The app lets users realize huge savings of up to 98% and takes advantage of your wireless plan’s minutes to connect calls instead of a Wi-Fi or 3G connection,” says Andreas Bernström, CEO at Rebtel.
Windows Phone 8 hits stores in November, while the app is available for download right now
