FreeFly881 Announces Its Launch, Aims To Remove International Calling Charges And Revolutionize the Global Communications Industry

December 9, 2014– Ontario-based FreeFly881 announces the launch of its international calling app and service for mobile devices and VoIP phones, aims to keep users connected for free anywhere in the world.

By building a unique virtual phone system separate from the strict parameters of traditional communication companies, the VoIP phone, Smartphone and Tablet FreeFly881 app — suitable for both individual users and businesses — eliminates all international call roaming charges.

With a slogan of “One World. One Call.” FreeFly881 is now available for free on the Apple App Store in over 30 different languages.

After users register their phone number, which will be preceded by 881, the service is activated. Once in the app, users simply use the dial pad to make outbound calls to other FreeFly881 mobile numbers and to VoIP phones.

Unlike other calling apps, users of FreeFly881 do not need to add or accept contact requests; they can just open the app and dial.

Once the service is activated, and providing users have an active internet connection, anyone traveling internationally — whether they be on holiday or on a business trip — will be able to make and receive calls from anywhere on their mobile device completely free of charge. Conversely, potential clients of businesses based overseas can easily download and use the FreeFly881 app to call without worrying about incurring long distance charges.

“FreeFly881’s mission is to be the first independent global phone system that promotes communication for its users and connects them in any situation. For businesses that have transnational customers it is the perfect tool,” says FreeFly881 Communications Inc.’s CEO Raymond Kwan. “For travelers, specifically for business people who need to be contactable at all times, roaming prices can be incredibly high by the end of a trip. We think that’s unacceptable with the level of technology that is globally available,” he adds.

Through a localized communications platform, Kwan explains, the FreeFly881 app can bring a whole new paradigm to global communication solutions by creating a new ecosystem and facilitating international business connections. This communication ecosystem, he adds, will be the first of its kind.

Additionally, he says, FreeFly881 Communications Inc. has developed an easily accessible and mobile Global Phonebook Directory for business users of the app.

"With the global phonebook directory and the app’s profile options, users who search for you or your business can see an 'About Me’ section and a 'My Link section through the app,” he says. “With the combination of these two platforms, small and large businesses can build a clientele and gain unprecedented exposure to a global market,” he explains.

As international communication technology continues to change, restrictive parameters put in place by traditional phone companies place financial pressure on businesses. The idea of getting a new SIM card in every

country for business travelers can be time consuming and impractical, both for the businessman and for their customers who have to pay international calling rates to communicate. According to a 2012 CCMI survey, nearly 40% of Fortune 1000 Companies spent over $1,000 per month per user on average roaming costs for their international travelers.
Users of the service, whether they be traveling or at their home business, will now have limitless calling options by applying FreeFly881 to any VoIP phones, iOS or Android device. Furthermore, the Global Phonebook directory is currently available and — although still in its preliminary stage — is set to change the way we connect with businesses throughout the world as the FreeFly881 community expands.
Based in Ontario, Canada and established early 2014, FreeFly881 is a free app that can be downloaded to any iOS device and Android phones
(available soon). Once downloaded, users will enjoy unlimited and free international voice calling. Suitable for businesses and individuals, registering 881 and your mobile phone number will ensure that you have no more international roaming fees, forever! More information of the app can be found through the FreeFly881 website (http://www.freefly881.com), or through their Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn pages.

“The restrictions that these fees cause to both individuals and businesses should not be happening with our available technology,” says Kwan. “FreeFly881 will break down these parameters to allow complete ease and flow of communication. The beauty of this app is that it can be downloaded by anyone on a mobile device or VoIP phone and used anywhere in the world,” he adds.

In addition to the Smartphone and Tablet app, FreeFly881 also offers a VoIP phone line service for users who want to maintain their international connectivity when they return from a trip. All users need to do is assign their account to their VoIP Phone Set to be able to receive and make the same free calls.

According to Kwan, the VoIP phone service for businesses will mean an ongoing connection with established and potential clients from all over the world — allowing businesses to expand.

With both a consumer and business focus, FreeFly881 is aiming to actively disrupt the communications industry through its revolutionary perspective.
