Consumers are all feeling the pinch lately, which is why iBurst believes subscribers will welcome the news that they can receive R50.00 worth of free calls a month if they sign up for the iCall voice over IP (VoIP) service.
"iBurst's 50Worldwide offer will enable iBurst subscribers to make R50.00 worth of free calls every month to any destination in the world while simultaneously offering a respite from rising prices on most other goods and services," says Thami Mtshali, CEO of iBurst.
The offer applies to current as well as all new iCall subscribers indefinitely.
Existing iBurst subscribers who are not yet subscribed to iCall can sign up for this service on the iBurst website. Also on the website is a downloadable virtual phone which allows iCall users to make telephone calls.
Launched just two months ago, iCall has seen an uptake of more than 100 000 minutes of calls made every month.
iCall subscribers require no telephone line, calls between iCall subscribers are free and they can achieve up to 60% savings on calls to countries such as the UK, USA, China, Australia and France. With iCall it is cheaper to call a landline number overseas than it is to call Cape Town from Johannesburg from a traditional landline. Substantial savings can also be realised by subscribers using the service within the borders of South Africa.
