Truphone Slashes Mobile App Calling Rates

Updated: January 06, 2011

LONDON, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Truphone has made staying in touch with friends, family and colleagues both at home and abroad even more affordable with the introduction of its lowest calling rates ever.

The global mobile operator has reduced its calling rates to more than 30 destinations worldwide by an average of 60 percent when compared to previous rates for calls made using its Apple iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Nokia and Android smartphone apps.

Truphone has also reduced the cost of its unlimited monthly call package to just $12.95 per month.

Truphone's new rates are now as low as 2.1 cents per minute, meaning even calls to some of the most popular destinations worldwide, such as the United States, France and China (see Notes to Editors for full TruStandard rates), can cost as little as $1.30 per hour. Calls made between Truphone customers over Wi-Fi or *3G remain free.

"Truphone wants to take the pain out of keeping in touch with friends and family, whether at home or away," said Truphone CEO Geraldine Wilson. "Our wide range of applications, calling bundles, new calling rates and lower monthly plans make it easy and cost-effective for people to talk to their heart's content."
