RabbitPoint Ltd of London, UK, today announced the intended launch - next week on the opening day of the telecommunications industry's flagship exhibition 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona - of groundbreaking technology that will mark the beginning of an end of GSM mobile phone roaming charges.
RabbitPoint is one of the first providers of a wireless VoIP network offering Internet access and telephony services via laptops and mobiles through existing and newly installed wireless hotspots (cellpoints) and fixed Internet connections.
The company has harnessed the power and capabilities across broadband, mobile, VoIP and WiFi technologies to produce a system that enables totally free calls to all customers using its network. And allows customers to access mobile phone technology without having to pay international roaming charges.
"People are upset by the cost of calls once they start roaming worldwide," said founder Sean Murray. "RabbitPoint is a new system that harnesses high speed internet connections to its new breed of mobile phones at a zero cost. Anyone with a Rabbit Mobile phone may make free calls to any other person who is hooked up on the network. Not only that, but they can make and receive mobile WiFi calls without having to pay the outrageously high roaming charges levied by the traditional mobile operators."
Murray and his team believe that a phone that looks like an ordinary mobile will bring its service to the masses. RabbitPoint has the ability to supply its technology immediately to the end user via mail order CellPoint supply. CellPoints act as intelligent WiFi access points that allows Rabbit customers to make and receive calls and CellPoint owners to share in the revenue generated.
Once delivered to the relevant location, the CellPoint self configures via an internet connection and is available immediately to any Rabbit customers within its area for web access and mobile phone calls. Whilst this is a first in its own right, the CellPoint further networks together instantly with any other CellPoint it can find within its radius, therefore beginning blanket coverage of its network.
