1LegCall Racks up Impressive Double-Digit Growth in First Year
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
1LegCall, a wireless VoIP app from TalkFree, Inc. showed an astonishing 66% Q4 over Q3 growth rate in 2009, running over 2-million minutes a day in it's first year and trending to reach 3-million minutes a day by end of Q1 of 2010.
1LegCall's 3rd and 4th Quarter results demonstrate the strong demand for Mobile VoIP technologies in emerging markets and Third World countries according to COO Eric Scheele.
"Mobile technology has been a strong choice in emerging markets, because it bypassed the need for expensive fixed-line infrastructure. The maturing of these markets and the advent of affordable unlimited 3G data packages fits perfectly into our road map," states Scheele.
1LegCall is a mobile app that uses existing mobile handsets to deliver an inexpensive call solution using VoIP technology. "We do not require our customers to change carriers or buy expensive new phones. They simply load the dialer app onto their existing phone using their existing 3G or WIFI connections," says Jean Templin, Director of Product Marketing for TalkFree.
Launched in January of 2009, 1LegCall's first year revenues delivered an impressive 26% of total revenue for TalkFree, Inc., in 2009.
