BOCA RATON, Fla., Dec. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- "In October we announced that Skype users can now connect to our Dial91.com service instead of using a local access number," says Steve Williams, Dial91's President. "We hoped that hundreds of Skype users would try Dial91 Calling Card Service and remain as a customer, however, we didn't anticipate the overwhelming success of the "Connect with Skype" feature. We are pleased to announce that we signed up over 5,000 new customers with our unique concept. Our next step is to add the "Connect with Skype" feature to our GlobalTel.com platform to enhance services and reduce prices for our International Callback customers.
Williams further noted, "Skype is an international success with over 400 million users. Soon all our calling platforms will be integrated to communicate with Skype's back end connectivity. Our future plans are all based around unique connection to Skype and it's international customer base.
Amar Behura, Dial91's VP of Operations explains how it works: "Dial91.com simply launches Skype to connect to Dial91's calling card platform. Skype users purchase a Dial91.com pin, then enable the SKYPE/PIN FREE feature in the Dial91.com Settings Menu, then add "Skype2Dial91.com" to their Skype Directory. To make a call, launch Skype, click on the Skype2Dial91.com user name. This sends the call seamlessly from Skype to Dial91 which results in a call to India using Dial91 at only US$0.0147 per minute which is lower than Skype's normal rate of US$0.0920.
Dial91.com is a service of Globaltel, is based in Boca Raton, Florida. GlobalTel is a leading provider of low cost International Calling Solutions developing retail international calling services such as Dial91.com, International Callback Services and Callmeback.net Prepaid Callback Service.
