Tuitalk Launches Free Phone Service in 38 Countries
Communication services provider Tuitalk, a division and brand of Argela-USA, has launched its free phone service in 38 countries, which is available to anyone who signs up via the company's website.
For 10 minutes per day, users can make international calls using a downloadable PC client. According to Tuitalk, its PC-to-phone service is available to countries such as China, Japan, Mexico, Germany and the UK. Users can also make free calls to landlines and mobile phones in the US and Canada.
Tuitalk leverages an IP multimedia subsystem model originally designed for 3G cellular networks, which can simultaneously connect to many operators' telecommunications infrastructures and offer similar service capabilities (such as ad playing) without further work on the telecommunications network.
Oguz Oktay, vice president of sales for Argela-USA, said: "Our service doesn't require a credit card and calls can be made free from a PC to a landline or mobile phone. Tuitalk provides a higher level of connection and community building by eliminating cost and age barriers when it comes to staying connected to friends and family."
