Call Home This Mother's Day and Save on Long Distance Rates With IP Telephony Services From Dialpad

Apr 17, 2001, 01:00 ET from Dialpad Communications

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- If distance separates you
 from your Mom on Mother's Day, don't let high long distance rates get in the
 way of telling her how much you appreciate her. By routing phone calls over
 the Web, rather than traditional land lines, new telephony providers are
 enabling consumers to call home at significantly reduced rates.
     Roger Wood, senior vice president of Dialpad Communications, describes how
 it works. The same technology that allows information to travel over the
 Internet has been applied to voice. A phone call is broken down into packages
 of compressed, digitized data and routed over IP (Internet Protocol) networks
 that travel to homes and businesses around the world. The result:  cheaper
 phone rates, as calls bypass the telephone companies'
 circuit switches -- and many of their fees. See: http://www.dialpad.com .
     Says Wood, whose company is a leading provider of IP telephony services,
 "More phone calls are made on Mother's Day than any other day of the year for
 one simple reason: we all want to let Mom know that we're thinking of her. The
 message we deliver is priceless, and routing calls over the Web results in
 distance rates that are just a fraction of the cost offered by traditional
 phone companies."
     On May 13, consumers have three options for calling home:
 
     -- Phone-to-Phone. Enjoy the convenience of calling wherever and whenever
 you want to at some of the lowest rates available. Several IP providers,
 including Dialpad, offer prepaid phone cards that provide consumers with
 significant cost savings on their long distance calls.
     -- PC-to-Phone. International calling rates are especially cost-effective
 when dialed directly from the computer to any telephone in the world.
 Dialpad's service eliminates the need for installing and configuring software.
 All it takes is an Internet connection, headset and PC with a sound card, and
 you're ready to go.
     -- PC-to-PC. There's no better way to save on long distance rates than
 making calls directly from your computer desktop. To do so, both parties must
 use the same telephony software, and have PC's equipped to handle voice.
