Terra launches VoIP

13 Dec 2005

The Brazilian arm of Spanish ISP Terra has launched a voice over internet protocol (VoIP) service, according to reports in local paper Gazeta Mercantil. The company, which claimed around 1.1 million broadband customers at the end of September 2005, aims to have signed up over 50,000 subscribers to the new offering by the end of 2006. Terra said it will offer a single tariff for calls from computers to fixed line numbers in the country, although it has not specified what this price will be. The monthly subscription charge is expected to be around BRL7.90 (USD3.50) for Terra customers and BRL9.90 for non-Terra users.
