NEW DELHI: Norwegian telecommunication company Global Voice has launched GVCall mobile app, which provides users with low-cost international calls through Wi-Fi and with this, the company claims customers can save nearly 70% of their expenses as compared to the regular phone calls.
Customers do not need internet connectivity for the calls. The app has an edge over any other mode of calling as it offers superior quality as compared to VoIP and has access to worldwide GSM, a release said.
However, the app provides a prepaid service and does not provide free international calls.
Morten Hofstad, Regional Director, Global Voice ASIAGlobal Voice, said: “In order to keep this global integration going, people need a communication system which is glitch free with great connectivity and clarity without burning holes in their pocket. In view of this, we are absolutely optimistic and excited about the launch our GVCall Mobile App.”
The users need to download the GV Call app from Google play or the app store to make calls anywhere in the world.
To avoid expensive mobile roaming charges abroad, a user should use the “Calling from” option in the menu to deliver the calls back to a local landline or local mobile number. The call will get connected to a hotel number, a local friend’s mobile number, or any local phone number.
Global Voice intends to build a world class communication platform in India, anticipates having more than a million customers in India over the next three years.
It also foresees opportunities in many other Asian countries and has already established strategic partnerships in countries like Indonesia, Myanmar and Malaysia.
