IP IP hooray for Vip

26 Sep 2007

Croatia’s second largest mobile operator by subscribers, VIPnet, has launched a mobile VoIP service under the brand ‘Vip Over IP’, free of charge for a six month trial period. VoIP calls can be connected to mobile handsets and computers via any ISP of the user’s choice. According to a press release, unlike some other VoIP services such as Skype, Vip Over IP users will keep their mobile identity when calling fixed or mobile networks using a computer, ie their full number will be visible to the call recipient. VIPnet is wholly owned by Telekom Austria’s wireless unit Mobilkom Austria.
