New Version of Pure Minutes Available through Google Play

A new version of Pure Minutes is available for Android devices through Google Play. Pure Minutes offers users in the United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada a more efficient and cost-effective way communicate with families and friends living overseas.

Pure Minutes is trying to tape into the vast market of foreign nationals living in the United States who purchase international calling cards in order to call home. The most popular customers for these cards are from the Hispanic community, followed by people who hail from Asian, Eastern European, and Middle Eastern countries. Pure Minutes is so confident in their product that they are offering people a three dollar free credit voucher to be used for international calls.

People wishing to make calls through Pure Minutes will be able to call more than fifty international countries from an app now available to Android users through Google Play. The app will store numbers for international calling directly in the user’s smartphone and these numbers can be redialed for future calls when using the Pure Minutes app.

Users of Pure Minutes save 60 percent to 90 percent of what they would have spent with other carrier services. Arnold Hammer, sales manager for Pure Minutes, said it is “critical” that companies like Pure Minutes adapt to changes in the smartphone demographic, stating that it is what keeps them “ahead of the curve.” He noted that there are strong patterns towards mobile users in Africa, Asia, Central America, and the Middle East.

Pure Minutes, he says, offers an unbeatable combination of “dramatic savings” and “stellar quality.” He anticipates seeing growth in the near future. “Now with the ease-of-use and diverse functionality that the Android application offers, we expect to see subscribers using our service at a much higher rate.”

NT Easy Start Self-Service
FTTH is by far more challenging than xDSL due to its use of point-to-multipoint technology. This makes it harder for service providers to offer self-service solutions to the subscribers. Once an ONT is installed, it is not straightforward exactly where it is located in the shared PON covering a wide area and a large number of users. Therefore each and single ONT installation or replacement requires field dispatch to the subscriber home. ONT Easy Start is the solution to this challenge but also the means to increase customer experience.
