Just picked up a press release from Rebtel. They claim that Truphone (incorrectly spelt as Truephone!) no longer offers free calling. Currently calls to non Truphone numbers attract a small charge but Truphone to Truphone calls are still (and guaranteed to be) free. That's great when your colleagues or friends have Truphone numbers and can potentially save you a fortune.
Also, whilst the Rebtel 'bit' of the call is free, you still have to make a PSTN or mobile call to connect to Rebtel which in many instances will attract a charge, so suggesting Rebtel is free is a bit disingenuous.
I really like Rebtel, even if the call setup can be a little complicated, and I've blogged about them before but I do prefer to see the whole story represented.
The press release can be found here.
