Truphone launches Xmas promo


VoIP provider Truphone has launched a Christmas promotion for customers enabling them to call landlines in 30 countries for half price.

The offer will run between Christmas day and January 5 next year. Customers will also get the discount for calling mobiles in America, Canada, Hong Kong, China and Singapore.

Calls to America, Canada, China, UK and Australia will be charged at 1.5p per minute during the promotional period.

Truphone is available on the Apple iPhone, iPod touch, BlackBerry, Nokia and Android devices.

Truphone chief executive Geraldine Wilson said: “With the current financial crisis, people are less able to travel to be near to their friends and family at this special time. With our 50 per cent off calling promotion, those who cannot be together will be able to catch up at very low cost across the world.”
