VOIP Service Not Just For Landlines Anymore!

I travel quite a bit outside the US and have friends and business associates outside the US that I phone on a regular basis. Having to use calling cards and find a landline is a hassle. This new mobile voip service from Packet8 looks to be something very beneficial. With the news today that for the first time ever consumers spent more on cell phone service than landline. Also there are over 250 million cell phones in the US and only about 190 million landlines. Cell phones are the future and VOIP service has now moved from landlines to become mobile.

Packet8 MobileTalk™ lets cell phone users reduce their international calling rates by as much as 90%--quickly and easily. No more special PIN codes to keep track of. No more long access numbers to dial. Just the highest quality digital voice service and great calling rates to any of your international locations— all for a low monthly access fee. With MobileTalk, you’ll never run out of minutes or leave your international call quality up to chance. And, you can view your call history, and your MobileTalk savings, from anywhere in the world.
