The app is already available on other mobile devices. iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad users can use the app to make calls to cellphones and landlines, both locally and internationally, at reduced rates.
FNB Connect was launched in 2008 and is the bank’s virtual ISP that provides telecommunication services to FNB customers. Non-FNB customers are also eligible for the service.
According to FNB, ‘Connect Talk’ is a pre-paid system with call rates ranging from 33c to 49c per minute for local calls, 25c per minute for international calls, and 99c per minute to any South African mobile number when making calls via an internet connection.
FNB Connect CEO, Luis Simoes, believes FNB has answered the needs of many phone and data users that aren’t currently fulfilled by the traditional internet and cellphone service providers.
“Calls can be made from a computer or compatible cellphone, or even from a landline if plugged into a VoIP-enabled router. As it’s a pay-as-you-go service we have an online call calculator so call costs can be determined before calls are made.”
“ Furthermore, live usage and billing statistics can be seen at anytime instead of waiting for month end to get the bill. And if users have a WiFi-enabled cellphone they can use this internationally and don’t have to sign up for expensive roaming with their cellphone service provider,” says Simoes. “In addition FNB Connect users can also get free ‘Connect Talk’ access at selected WiFi hotspots,” he added.
