Leading international calling app Ringcredible will be offering free calls to Nigeria for 24 hours on October 1, 2014, to mark West African country’s independence day.
According to the company, only a connection fee will be charged ($0.07 USD) for calls from anywhere in the world to Nigeria, even if the caller wants to speak for 1 hour or 10 hours.
The RingCredible app fills the gap between for free ‘between apps’ calls of unreliable quality and expensive calls through telecom providers. There are now more than 2.5 million users for the app that allows international calls to both fixed and mobile numbers and can be 90% cheaper. Expensive ‘roaming’ is shunned by the app and therefore rates are extremely low: for both local and international calls.
“It is our ambition that within two years, we will be the most used app worldwide for calls to any fixed and mobile numbers for only a few cents. We will be making acquisitions and further investments along the way. Our model is better and easier than others: you install the app and instantly make calls all over the world. Our focus is full-throttle growth”, says Hans Osnabrugge, CEO of RingCredible.
RingCredible is free to download for everyone and is also brought to the public’s attention by large companies such as CheapTickets, Air Canada and Flight Centre. For domestic callers the app is mainly used to supplement prepaid sim cards and by students who want to prevent exceeding the limit of their bundle allowance with their provider.
