Go2Call launches PC-to-mobile calling as part of new GlobalSelect Service Thursday 14 December 2000 PDF Print -Targeted PC-to-phone calling plans will provide low cost service to mobile phones and landlines in more than 100 countries- Go2Call, the leading international PC-to-phone service provider, today introduced GlobalSelect Service (TM), a collection of targeted, low cost calling plans with coverage to landlines and mobile phones in more than 100 countries around the world. With this latest service introduction, Go2Call is the first provider to offer web-based calling to all parts of the world. GlobalSelect will allow Go2Call subscribers to call mobile phones - offering them the chance to talk with friends and family on the move directly from their PC. The new service covers all mobile numbers in countries across Europe, such as the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, France and Spain and many other popular calling destinations throughout the world, including the United States, Canada and Australia. Go2Call subscribers can choose from eight different calling plans and a calling card option. These range from the entry plan, which offers calling to Canada, the United States and Germany, to the top plan, which allows calling to over 100 countries across Europe, America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. As an added bonus, calls to landline phone numbers in the UK and Ireland are free. According to Larry Spear, Go2Call co-founder, the cost-savings potential offered by the company's new plans is tremendous. "With GlobalSelect, people who place international long distance phone calls for business or pleasure can save up to 90 percent compared to traditional long distance carriers." Go2Call's expanded PC-to-phone service features the company's easy-to-use web-based calling technology to provide the best in value and convenience. Added Spear, "Go2Call uses leading-edge technology backed by our private network of call servers and gateways to ensure a high quality calling experience. This combination of global coverage, great value and superior technology gives our customers the freedom to easily connect with friends and family anytime, anywhere in the world." Targeted Calling, Maximum Savings To illustrate the cost savings available with Go2Call, a call from the UK to France can cost as little as £0.03 per minute.* In comparison, that same call can cost as much as £0.29 per minute using BT - a savings of nearly 90 percent.** Using this same formula, UK callers can also save as much as 90 percent on calls to France* and Italy* and more than 90 percent on calls to Australia*,**. For customer convenience, all eight GlobalSelect calling plans are billed at a flat rate. There are no sign-up, connection or additional calling fees. Customers can call any time of the day, from anywhere in the world. For maximum savings and increased calling freedom, each of Go2Call's plans covers calls to multiple destinations. Customers are free to call all of the destinations in each plan. Go2Call's GlobalSelect Service is available to anyone with Internet access, a multimedia computer, speakers and a microphone. For the best quality calls, a 28k or greater connection speed, and a headset, are recommended. Free Calling to the UK and Ireland With Go2Call, calls to landline phone numbers in the UK and Ireland from anywhere in the world are free. Enrollment in GlobalSelect is not required to take advantage of free calling to the UK and Ireland. Due to changes in the global online advertising market, free calling to Belgium, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the US has been suspended and replaced with low, cost calling available through GlobalSelect. Go2Call customers were notified in advance of the changes in free calling service.
