FooCall – A New Low-cost International Calling Service That can be Used From any Phone or Computer

The new service ‘FooCall’ has just launched, dedicated to providing consumers with an easy-to-use, cheap international calling solution that supports a range of calling methods.

FooCall users can make low-cost international calls from their existing home and mobile phones and there’s no need to change provider. There’s also a browser-based, web phone accessed by logging into the FooCall website, enabling users to call directly from their computer. No download or install is required for any of these calling options. The user simply prepays for some calling credit and can use as many of the calling options as they like, all from the same account.

FooCall’s international call rates are some of the lowest in the market. For example, an international call to an Indian mobile costs GBP1.50 per min on Vodafone, 4.7p per min on Skype and just 2.5p per min with FooCall[1]. Indeed, when you compare FooCall call rates to traditional fixed line and mobile operators, savings can be over 90%.

Graeme Hutchinson, former Sales & Marketing Director of Virgin Mobile and co-founder of Ghost Telecom, the company behind FooCall said "Some of our customers have used services from VoIP providers before, while others are wedded to their home phone or mobile. While they all want to save money when calling abroad, our experience has shown us that this is often made unnecessarily complicated through downloads, installations, set-up etc. FooCall requires no new hardware and no real change in behaviour. We offer very low international call rates and keep the whole thing simple. That’s good for all our customers."

FooCall has also introduced an iPhone app, allowing cheap international calling from your iPhone without needing a WiFi connection to do so.

FooCall is free to sign-up to at http://www.foocall.com.

All new users also get their first call free. The FooCall iPhone app is available now from the Apple App Store and is free to download.
