A report in the UK paper the Telegraph claims that Google is in talks with Hutchison Whampoa to create a service for global mobile calling and roaming.
“It is understood that Google aims to create a global network that will cost the same to use for calls, texts and data no matter where a customer is located. “
Very similar to the long standing aims of iNum. 🙂
Sounds rather speculative at this stage. But let’s hope if it develops perhaps Google will increase their support of iNum and Hutch might enable free calling to +883 5100 numbers, and issue iNum numbers to each user.
If the goal is to have a flat rate mobile calling experience regardless of where the customer is located, using a unique global number signals this clearly to dialers.
Meanwhile you don’t have to wait to get an iNum number from the service providers all ready on board, and experience free calling globally within the iNum community.
