Zero1, a new mobile phone carrier has announced that it will begin offering unlimited voice and data on smart phones for just $69.95 a month. The offer is made without a contract and riding on a network that is as wide as the one operated by AT&T because it will, in a way, be using AT&T’s network through some form of roaming agreement that will allow the transmissions to tunnel from AT&T’s network to Zero1’s IP backbone. .
Most of the savings that Zero1 will enjoy is by removing traditional circuit switched voice calls. All of the calls on their network will go through their own VOIP application. Currently this only runs on Windows Mobile 6 phones but in the future it will also work for Blackberry, Android, Symbian, JAva and even iPhones.
The $69.95 a month plan will include VOIP calling and data, and will be done every month without a contract or credit check. An additional $10 a month, users can enjoy unlimited international calling to 40 countries.
