Internet phone calls (VoIP), that you make from the computer to other landline or mobile phone numbers using software like Skype, are generally cheaper but then they require a computer and an Internet connection.
Jajah earlier made some good start and allowed users to make long distance phone calls over the Internet using regular phone lines – a computer was required only for arranging the call – the actual voice conversation would happen over traditional phone lines.
Now they have gone a step further with Jajah Direct that completely eliminates the need for a computer to make internet phone calls.
With Jajah Direct, you can call any long distance landline or mobile phone by just dialing a local number, then enter the number you want to call and Jajah connects you. And since it’s a VoIP call, the calling rates remain low.
And unlike the Skype phones, you require no special hardware to use Jajah Direct – it works with every phone that has a dialpad.
Jajah Direct is currently available only in US, UK and Israel but Shaherose (of Jajah) did confirm that they will offer this service in India soon.
