Internet based virtual calling card pioneer StartDialing.com International says over 800,000 searches for virtual calling cards were performed through Internet search giants Yahoo! and Google last month.
Virtual Calling Cards are the internet based versions of the calling cards bought from shops which allow low-cost national and international phone calls, at times allowing customers to save up to 90 per cent of the standard call rate.
Called calling cards, they are actually Personal Identification Numbers (PIN) which are generated by the issuing company and sent to the customer. StartDialling.com says their most popular cards are ones which can be used in over 30 countries, from almost any telephone including cellular phones. Depending on the card, information attached to the number can be altered to allow only particular numbers to be called and even allow particular numbers to be called automatically.
Initially threatened by cellular companies low cost long distance plans, Startdialing.com states that consumers have become wise to the hidden costs in these plans and have returned to calling cards for their long distance calls.
StartDialling.com have been in business since 2001 and have more than 10,000 customers worldwide. Alexander Davidoff, Chief Marketing Officer of Startdialling.com says their site is rapidly approaching their one millionth visitor and that most of their customers are students or travelling businessmen.
Virtual cards offer the ability to be recharged over the Internet, offering unheard of convenience and reliabilty in the telecommunications world.
