VoIP Switch - Inc. Proposes Mobile Gateway Technology to Eliminate Roaming Charges

September 17, 2013


When it comes to telecom, one of the European Union’s major goals has been to end mobile roaming charges. Inc. claims that it has a viable solution to the problem. According to the company, its Mobile Gateway (News - Alert) technology can be the ideal solution toward eliminating roaming charges.

The plan to eliminate roaming charges is not going down well with major telecom operators in the region. Companies like Vodafone (News - Alert), Orange and O2 owner Telefonica are worried about the revenues they will lose if roaming charges are stopped. They are advising the EU against any such measures.

Therefore, Mobile Gateway technology can come in handy. Mobile Gateway makes use of a phone’s current network and then uses local reserved phone numbers from wherever the call originates. This allows the user to make a long distance call at the rate of a local call. In its effort help people understand more about its Mobile Gateway technology, Inc will soon publish a white paper.

Dr. Thomas Sawyer, chairman and CEO of Voip-Pal said, “Anyone who has travelled to the European Union, Africa, or Asia has experienced the frustration of choosing between very expensive hotel telephone rates or paying exorbitant roaming charges. Neither is a desirable choice. I have paid almost US$1 per minute for roaming charges. While the European Union is attempting to pass legislation to abolish roaming charges in the future, VoIP-Pal currently has the technology to negate roaming charges for all customers.”

The company also offers pay as-you-go international calling services. These services consist of a free PC Dialer and a free smartphone app for the Android (News - Alert). The company is also developing a smartphone app for iPhone.
