Cybertel Cphones let Marines call home for Christmas

San Diego -- Cybertel Capital Corporation announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Cybertel Communications Corporation, is getting set to test its Cphone with Marines in Iraq. There are phones currently at a Marine Corps base in Iraq that will enable Marines to call their families back in the United States over the Christmas holidays.

Marines will not experience busy signal delays when calling home via the Cphone because they will be using the Internet to place their calls in lieu of the traditional telephone networks.

Currently, there are approximately 150,000 Marines, Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen serving in the Middle East. If each had their own personal Cphone and made one ten minute call a week back home, that would produce an additional $3.3 million in revenues for Cybertel and save the troops $35,000,000 with their current cost of calling home.
