Some of us might probably be making free calls but using internet connectivity. But what if we can make free calls and that too without any network or internet connectivity? Won’t that be great?
Well, a Bangalore based Cloud telephony start-up is doing exactly the same. The start-up has developed a service called ‘FREEKALL’. Using this service the user can make free calls anywhere in the world.
So how does it work? To make free calls, users have to call their number 080-49202060080-49202060 after which the call will drop and they will receive a call back. They can answer the call and dial the number of the person they want to talk to, followed by the symbol #. Both calls will be bridged and users can talk freely.
Freekall is developed by Yashas C Shekar, Vijayakumar Umaluti and Sandesh in a duration of 8 months.
With the advent of smart phones, the era of telecommunication has changed horizons and communication has become almost free in developed countries with a number of service providers. But the problem in developing countries is that 95% of the population does not have access to either 3G or 4G which is almost a mandatory to make internet calls using Skype, Viber and other such applications.
The only catch here is that the user has to listen to a 10 second ad in every call about the latest offers by brands and receive offer coupons. After every two minutes, users will have to here advertisements in between the free calls.
