Geneva, Switzerland (PRWEB) June 22, 2006
The Franco-Swiss company HyFONE is announcing the online availability of its "nomad telephony" services in 105 countries worldwide.
"Nomad telephony" is designed as partial replacement for traditional mobile telephony. It brings vastly reduced cost of operations and works without any client PC or notebook, using combined GSM-WiFi portable phones instead. This mobile usage of internet is based on WiFi and WiMAX access coupled with the SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) internet telephony open standard.
For example, using your mobile phone to call China or the US for ten minutes tipically costs between 5 and 15 euros depending on the mobile operator and the place you are calling from. Using HyFONE the similar ten-minute call would cost you less than 20 cents.
Furthermore, HyFONE users ( called Foneziani) do not have to pay any roaming cost and can talk to each other free of charge (no time limit, no geographic limitation, no PC, no wires and no cost).
When registering for the first time, Foneziani receive their own telephone number (alike a Swiss fixed-line phone number) as part of the standard HyFONE subscription at no extra cost. This HyFONE number can be called from any other fixed or mobile phone in the world.
Mr Alexandre Golay, HyFONE Vice-Président, declared:
" After the airline companies, it is now to mobile phone companies to understand that the world is changing. HyFONE users are at the forefront of a new revolution in the world of mobile telephony. With nomad telephony services such as HyFONE, the "low-cost, no frills" approach has entered the closed oligopoly of national mobile operators. As a result, all prices for phone calls from and to mobile phones will fall and the consumers will greatly benefit from this price drop, especially for international travel calls."
The description of the four main HyFONE usage patterns is available on http://www.hyfone.net.
HyFONE is a private Swiss company linked to the French group interGSMnet (leading provider of nomad internet data communication services).
