MTN Zambia has become the first operator in Africa to offer a new roaming service for customers travelling outside Zambia, which makes a “drastic” reduction in the cost of making and receiving calls overseas.
The Instavoice ReachMe app, from voice messaging and social media mobile apps specialist Kirusa, also allows customers to use their existing MTN Zambia number anywhere in the world, even where the operator has no roaming partners.
It works by converting regular phone calls into Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) calls, which allows users to make or receive such calls within the app.
This means the user does not suffer when roaming, is out of network coverage or the device is on flight mode but without an active data connection.
It could be data from a sim card, roaming data or a Wi-Fi network.
Furthermore, there will be an opportunity to purchase virtual numbers for the US, UK, Canada and France for $1 a month.Find out more
