Goober Networks Announces Availability of CallingAmerica Web-Based Solution


July 28, 2011

People want to make free calls to other countries outside of the U.S. and Canada. Realizing the same, Goober Networks, the only complete Unified Communications solution, has introduced its CallingAmerica web-based solution.

The newly released solution will offer anyone in America a broadband connection to place free Voice-over-IP calls to any landline or mobile phone in the United States.

Callers, with the help of Goober’s CallingAmerica platform, will also get access to make calls internationally to select countries, which include Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Mexico, and the United Kingdom.

"The advantages of the CallingAmerica solution are compelling to customers’ calling needs and budgets,” said Goober Networks' CEO, Peter Uhlich, in a press release.

Aimed at providing users with access to calling landlines, both domestically and internationally, this latest, free service from Goober Networks has the ability to make truly web-based calls to landlines. This particular feature is unavailable through other VoIP companies like Skype.

Skype does not offer an application where calls can be made from Facebook to landlines via Skype. In fact, Goober has plans to release a Facebook plug-in for this capability soon.

Users, by registering for free at CallingAmerica.com, can make an unlimited number of calls beginning today. Even a caller who does not choose to register can still make an unlimited number of calls up to two minutes in duration each per day. The service also requires no downloads.

Company officials said that the free service is entirely supported by advertising sponsors. Callers, before each call, view a brief advertisement of 30 seconds or less, after which the call is placed to any landline or mobile phone within the U.S. and to select countries outside the country for free.

Uhlich continued, “By leveraging the advertising space on the CallingAmerica platform to promote Goober’s wide range of exciting products, we can continue our commitment to meeting the growing demand for no-cost voice and video services and develop our own solutions that rival existing services in today’s market.”

In related news, Goober Networks recently introduced VIVO Engine, a VoIP and video software development kit for real-time communication over IP.
