Mobile VoIP provider Zer01 Communications is making its debut at CTIA Wireless 2009 this week with an offer you can’t shake a stick at – unlimited nationwide mobile voice and data service priced at $69.95 per month with no contracts or commitments, no roaming charges and no additional taxes and fees.
The company also will be announcing an international unlimited voice and data service. Zer01 Mobile customers will be able to use their own smartphones or buy a new phone from the online store. Zer01 Mobile initially will be available on Windows Mobile smartphones, but support for other devices such as Blackberry, Android and iPhone will be available within months, the company said in a press statement.
“We are saving consumers hours of time and hundreds of dollars. Since we are setup as a prepaid service, no longer will consumers spend hours and hours reviewing contracts and being subject to high-pressure sales tactics. A consumer will only need to wait an estimated five minutes to allow us to update their phone’s SIM card to connect to our network,” said Zer01 Communications’ CEO Ben Piilani.
Piilani said the service is made possible by patent-pending Veritable Mobile Convergence (VMC) Technology Zer01 licenses from the Unified Technologies Group that allows each smartphone user to make voice calls or transmit data efficiently by bypassing carrier circuit-switched channels by sending voice communications through a VoIP system and onto a virtual private network that accesses the Internet.
The new mobile national carrier has created its own interconnect agreements throughout North America and the globe.
