South Africa: Fresh PHONE is Free, alternative VoIP service on FTTH

21 April 2017


Local cloud PBX provider Euphoria Telecom has introduced Fresh PHONE, an alternative VoIP telephone service that works off Fibre to the Home (FTTH) and Fixed Home LTE. Unlike traditional landline providers, Fresh PHONE has no setup costs or monthly line and rental fees.

Traditional landlines require customers to pay a monthly service charge for a landline. In addition to monthly fees, the initial setup and install fees can cost a customer up to R1200. These are costs incurred before any calls are made whilst Fresh PHONE is a free service with no setup or monthly costs.

Euphoria Telecom CEO George Golding says Fresh PHONE is becoming a popular option for residential users and has gained phenomenal traction in just 6 months. “Fresh PHONE is independent from any internet service provider, giving customers the choice of which service provider they prefer to use.”

"If a customer decides to change internet service providers, they do not have to change or find a new telephone service provider. Fresh PHONE works on any internet service provider’s backbone," he adds.

With Fresh PHONE, customers are eliminating unnecessary costs and only pay for the calls they make. Customers benefit from low cost calling, locally and internationally, on a pure per-second billing system with no connection fees or minimum costs. There are no hidden costs and no surprises.

Fresh PHONE is a pure prepaid system, curbing the nasty surprise bill at the end of the month. Customers can now keep track of how much they are spending on their calls and they can easily purchase airtime with a MasterCard or Visa Card.

Fresh PHONE gives customers access to a simple, easy-to-use dashboard that shows them all the information about their telephone system online. Customers enjoy the ease of seeing all their information in one place, they can log onto their system from anywhere at any time and can access real time inbound and outbound itemised call history, a standard Fresh PHONE feature.

Golding says Fresh PHONE allows you to port current geographic telephone numbers at a once-off fee of R150. "No need to change landline numbers to use Fresh PHONE. If a customer is moving home, there is no need to order a new geographic number. Fresh PHONE is a cloud-hosted service, so customers can take their number anywhere within the same city."

Fresh PHONE is the next step for customers with fibre or fixed LTE wanting home telephone numbers that are flexible, simple-to-use and up-to-date with technology.
