Let the Price War begin – Fring vs Skype
September 21, 2010 1 Comment
Has anyone tried Fring, the alternative to Skype and Google Voice? They now let you to make phone calls to land line and mobile numbers anywhere in the world with prices starting at one cent per minute. Looks like they are gearing up to challenge Skype – international calls from 0.4 cents to 1.1 cents depending on the country.
Fring and Skype used to be partner to serve iPhone and Android users, but since the launch of iPhone 4, their partnership for whatever reason started going south. Fring then opted to launch their own service called fringOut, very similar to SkypeOut.
FringOut currently works on Nokia phones and iPhone.
I love this price war between the two companies! This is what I call Capitalism. Fring’ service will be a additional competition in a very small space currently dominated by Skype and to a lesser extent Google Voice. As it should be 🙂
