Ziggo's Bapp voice app makes cautious attack on mobile market

Wednesday 9 April 2014 | 15:02 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
Dutch cable operator Ziggo has introduced a voice app called Bapp for smartphones and tablets (no SIM needed). It will test the app the next two months with 3,000 customers. Available for iOS and Android devices, Bapp allows customers to make and receive calls with their fixed-line number, from their mobile phone. It works over Wi-Fi and mobile networks, with automatic handover between the networks. Calls cost the same as on the customer's fixed line, either 9 cents a minute (plus a 9 cent call set-up fee) or unlimited calls for EUR 10 per month (including mobile and international numbers).
