FiCall targets ‘Market Leadership Position’ in VoIP services across the Mena region

United Arab Emirates: Wednesday, October 20 - 2010 @ 11:55

FiCall has already obtained over three million subscribers globally, post it’s Beta testing, during the first year. In terms of usage, subscribers use the international services for both personal and professional purposes. However, in market share the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) leads followed by Morocco, Egypt and North Africa.

With many competitors in its field, FiCall differentiates itself with unique applications to cater specifically to the Middle East region. The VoIP services offered by FiCall include video and voice calls, text messages, multimedia messages and uninterrupted free IPTV. For this, FiCall has the most advanced solutions.

The services are simple, effective and free between FiCall subscribers anywhere in the world. The call rates are also very low between subscribers and non-subscribers. “We want users to enjoy our VoIP services at affordable rates, as on an average, our rates at FiCall are 40 percent lower than other VoIP services and 85 percent lower than mobile call rates,” said Prince Abdelaziz Bin Meshaal Bin Abdelaziz Al Saud, Chairmain of the Board of FiCall.

FiCall through its website offers a technologically advanced Arabic application that even streams video over mobile for smart phones. “In the coming months, we plan to launch a first of its kind VoIP service that can be used on any handset. We are optimistic that the (VoIP) sector, will eventually get regulated in the MENA region, and we want to be the front runners in this offering,” affirmed Al Saud.

Though market regulations are currently restricted in the VoIP segment across many countries in the region, positive developments are expected in this sector soon. “We would be willing to assist the telecommunications regulators in offering them data access to the FiCall VoIP services. We feel that opening up the VoIP market will bring about healthy competition in services and competitive call rates, which both consumers and telecom companies can benefit. On an average telecom companies can save up to 85 percent through VoIP services,” said Faisal Al-Mhairat, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), FiCall.

The Company, which offers a personal and private service to users, does not in anyway interfere with government regulations for the VoIP services, yet would be willing, to offer government data access to fall in line with regulations.
