And the thing is, the call charges are always soooo expensive. Especially if calling directly from our landline.
Yeah, I know some would recommend calling from the online services.. but even though those maybe somewhat cheaper, but then, they always have a lag (some have told me it's because of the slow internet connection in Malaysia?).
The lag is quite frustrating, and definitely not a good choice to call for business.
With not much choice, my team & myself have used calling directly from the landline, despite knowing it's gonna be quite a bomb (hey, if calling Penang from PJ is RM1/ minute, then what about calling overseas?). Well, in many ways, it's because we don't have any other choice.
Not till I found out about iTalk. Now I know it has been around for a long time, but I've never really tried it till recently.
The outcome: the calls are clear and the rates are cheap - so it do benefit us in that way. The only drawback - having to key in the card numbers each time. That can be quite time consuming.
But I guess for now, that is one solution on saving some cashflow.. and making that important calls to our counterparts overseas :D
*Do u use any other calling services? What are they?
