New Zealand listed telco Newcall says its customers will be getting a better international service following an agreement with Nasdaq listed Wherever.net.

Newcall says the business development agreement with Hong Kong-based Wherever.net gives it worldwide access to a powerful range of new generation telephony services.

In return Wherever.net will get access to Newcall's national network.

NGL chairman, David Sun, says that the suite of new services will be progressively rolled out.

"The first stage will be to join Newcall to Wherever.net's VoIP network which will give our customers global reach at the most competitive rates."

"Because it is a managed internet service, as opposed to the unmanaged public internet, the quality is commensurate with the existing digital technology we currently use."

Mr Sun says in further stages Newcall customers will be able to use a personal, one telephone number service which will enable them to make telephone calls across the world and reach someone immediately.

"These calls will be directed to the recipient - whether on landline or mobile phone - without any premium."

Wherever.net's chairman, Chris Lee, says the partnership will enable both companies to further extend their networks and global reach.
