“We are enthusiastic and pleased to be able to offer this service to our customers in the East,” explained Daryl Jackson, Chief Executive. “We know that many of our customers have family and friends abroad, with whom they want to keep in touch – but that the cost of calling can be a barrier to communication. NetSpeak uses emerging technology to help people keep in touch, for less money.”
