Yatanarpon Call Center said two communication companies are working together to call directly to overseas without needing to go to cyber cafes. Right now people are depending on the internet phone services like Pfingo and Skype because they cost from 25kyats to 200kayts per minute depending on the country, while the cell phones and landlines costs starting from 300 kyats per minute.
â€˜Now people can directly make oversea calls cheaply without needing to go to internet cafes. They no longet need Y-talk account. They can just call the call-center number 1877 and follow the instruction to call the desired country. Currently we did not define the prices for the calls. Once we have defined the prices, we will make another announcement. The prices will be taken from the phoneâ€™s bill so they do not need another type of credit to refill. We had this idea for long, however, only now we can cooperate with call-center.â€™ said a responsible person.
The companies are Y-talk Calling and VMG Telecoms.
