21 Oct 2008

Telekom Austria’s cellular subsidiary Mobilkom has teamed up with mobile internet solutions provider Fring to launch a range of new mobile internet services including mobile voice-over-IP (mVoIP) and instant messaging. Fring has developed a dedicated version of its mobile client to support the functionalities of Mobilkom’s A1 service over IP. Hannes Ametsreiter, chief marketing officer at Mobilkom and Telekom Austria, said: ‘Internet services and mobile communications will become increasingly integrated. We were among the first operators to adopt the international SIP standard. Through the partnership with Fring we can demonstrate today how the two worlds will merge in the future.’
