Freshtel introduces converged mobile internet telephony service to Australia

Service allows users to make VoIP calls on mobiles when connected to a WiFi network.

Freshtel Holdings Limited [ASX: FRE] has launched a new mobile internet telephony service for Australian customers.

The service will use converged mobile technology to allow users to make VoIP calls on their mobile phones when connected to a WiFi network.

Customers will be able to retain their existing compatible phones and numbers. Calls and texts will be free to other Freshtel Mobilelink customers and substantially cheaper than mobile rates.

Freshtel is promising that typical customers will save around 50 percent on their mobile phone bills if they adopt the service.

Last week Freshtel subsidiary Tesco launched a service in the UK which uses the same technology.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
