When the muslim holiday Eid-Ul-Fitr starts on September 10, it can be expensive to send greetings to friends and family abroad. With the free Vopium software however, saying “Eid Mubarak” from your mobile phone is a lot cheaper.
”Eid mubarak” means ”blessed Eid” and when more than 1 billion muslims all over the world celebrate the end of the Ramadan with the Eid-Ul-Fitr-festivities, sending a greeting is of great importance. Unfortunately, this can get very expensive if your friends and family live abroad.
Vopium offers low rates and makes it cheaper to say “Eid Mubarak”. A call to Pakistan for example can be made for just 0.13 USD per minute plus the local call rate.
”More and more people are using Vopium to send greetings to friends and family all over the world and last year, the minutes to call Pakistan increased by 160 percent. Apart from the low rates, Vopium also offers calls from your mobile phone with a sound quality much better than Skype”, says Christian Eyde Møller, Chariman of the Board at Vopium.
Vopium combines VoIP-technology, which uses the Internet for international calls, with regular landline or mobile network for local calls. Users will therefore never experience delays, dropped calls or poor sound quality.
Make free calls
Vopium offers free calls to overseas mobile phones if the Vopium application is installed and both callers are in a Wi-Fi zone.
”Vopium continues to develop new solutions to offer our users extra value. Free calls over Wi-Fi is part of this strategy. Users can also communicate with friends on Google Talk, Windows Live Messenger, Twitter and Facebook from their mobile phone and we will continue to improve the Vopium application to meet the communication demands of our users,”, says Tanveer Sharif, CEO at Vopium.
DUE TO THE CURRENT SITUATION IN PAKISTAN, 10 PERCENT OF THE REVENUE FROM CALLS TO PAKISTAN WILL GO TO THE VICTIMS OF THE FLOODS AND TEXT MESSAGES TO PAKISTAN ARE FREE UNTIL OCTOBER 1.
