Mobiboo has announced a low cost unlimited calls tariff for both home and business users, allowing unlimited free calls to UK geographical numbers, and low cost call rates to UK mobiles and overseas numbers.
For £39.99 per year (personal) or £89.99 per year (business), and the download of Mobiboo’s Dashboard PC software, your computer becomes a screen phone, similar in nature to what Skype offers.
However, Mobiboo claim several advantages over “other well-known internet phone, or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services” (yeah, they mean Skype).
Not only is it cheaper, but they claim better sound quality of calls, plus each user gets a free ‘07911’ number, fixed wherever you roam, plus the option of a UK geographic number for £10 per year.
Calls to other Mobiboo users are free, and you can make free calls to the UK from abroad.
The service can also be used for instant messaging and sending photographs and documents, and even sharing your computer desktop.
The service works with a number of wi-fi phones, including the Tovo range introduced by Tesco last year.
