Fusion Offers Users Access to VOIP Services

Fusion will release Mobilink, a service that will allow subscribers to retrieve VOIP services from their mobile phones.

Fusion Telecommunications International announced Dec. 11 that it has launched a new service that will allow subscribers to access its Efonica voice over IP services.

This new service, Mobilink, targets travelers who use their mobile phones as their primary communications device, particularly those who make an abundance of international calls.

With Mobilink, Efonica subscribers can dial an access number, which will identify their Efonica member status, and will then be allowed to call numbers around the globe with savings of up to 80 percent.

"Fusion is excited to offer this unique new service, particularly to the international community, and we believe that offering a free in-network calling option will significantly increase the savings for subscribers making international calls," said Matthew Rosen, president and CEO of Fusion, in a release.

Mobilink also lets users call other in-network Efonica subscribers for free by dialing 10, which is the Worldwide Internet area code, while also providing users with the ability to access VOIP services provided by Efonica.

Efonica subscribers will be able to use their current landline or mobile phone numbers as their Internet phone numbers, giving users the ability to call others from any combination of PCs, Internet phones, regular phones with a SIP (Session Initiated Protocol) adapter or access number and mobile phones with an access number.

"Mobilink brings the benefits of VOIP to a larger universe of consumers that use mobile phones as their primary communications tool, and allows these customers to retain their usual calling habits while offering the quality and cost savings of Efonicas VOIP services," Rosen said.

The Mobilink service is available now. Rates will vary depending on what location the call is made from and on what type of phone is called, whether it be a landline or mobile phone.
