PLDT just made available a new service called PLDT TalkPad.
It allows you to call landlines, mobile phones and other myPad Messenger on PCs, and send text messages using your internet-powered PC at surprisingly low rates.
According to their website, you can use TalkPad to call any landline phone from anywhere in the world for “as low as” P1.00. Thats one peso (what country would that be?). And of course, talkpad to talkpad talk and chat are free.
As low as 14 US cents per minute for calls to the Philippines. First 1000 subscribers can Enjoy 50% Bonus credits with every reload.
With PLDT Talkpad, you can contact anyone, anytime even when they are not online, unlike with Skype, Yahoo and other VoIP services.
You have to buy credits to make it work. Available in $5, $10, and $20 denominations. If you’d buy a Vanity number, that would have an “Additional cost of P5000 ($120.48)” WHAT!
The figures here are in dollars.. and according to them it is Computed at US $1 = P41.50. May change depending on the average monthly FOREX.
I saw their rates and for those pinoys abroad, this is really a good offer.
First seen on Technograph
Globe has quite a similar service called G-Web Call.
