IT and Telecoms: Worldchat Celebrates 20th country onboard
Recent Gauteng Business News
Worldchat, the international prepaid calling card company that enables South Africans to call their loved ones abroad cheaply from home, now also offers its users the flexibility of calling home (or anywhere else in the world) from a total of 20 different countries.
With exchange rates skyrocketing out of our favour, South Africans who are traveling abroad will be relieved to know that some things that they need to use while overseas can be paid for locally in the rands as they earn them. So, now when traveling, can keep in touch without breaking the bank.
Company MD, Chantal Elgie says that the company intends to expand further in 2009, increasing the usability of this homegrown product to many more countries.
Worldchat cards, bought in South African rands and always charged in South African rands and cents no matter where in the world you use them can now be used in Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, UK, USA and of course here in South Africa.
In addition to locals and holidaymakers, business people are also seeing the benefits of buying Worldchat cards for use when traveling, as rather than using international roaming to call home or the office while abroad, they are now using hotel phones and public callboxes to call SA while away for R1.69/min tollfree or 79c/min when using our regular access numbers in each region (user pays local to this number). Compare this with the R17.95/min and upwards charged by Vodacom and the other cell providers when roaming internationally and calling home and the savings are enormous.
Worldchat cards can be purchased from approx 600 stockists in Johannesburg, Capetown and Durban, as well as online. For more details the company website: www.worldchat.co.za is packed with information and the helpline (0861468376) runs until 10pm 7 days a week.
