Andy have provided an excellent summary of the Minute Stealing space activity over the past few days and concludes with:
In my book we’re not done seeing the end of the price drop for minutes, but we are seeing the end of where profits are found simply in minutes. Smarter companies like Migg33 and client Mobivox (as Alec Saunders pointed to) are able to leverage minutes to benefit their community members with added features and more than just minutes vs. a Jajah which only has people who want more for less. In the long run using minutes as a loss leader will be the coin of the realm, not simply minutes for minutes sake, because of what I’ve labeled the "no-loyalty" crowds modus operandi.
That crowd goes to whomever offers free next.
Alec Saunders provides his viewpoint. In particular with 400 points-of-presence in forty countries, including Canada, Mobivox remains our choice:
It’s a good move for Jajah, but it’s unfortunate that dial-in numbers are available in such a small number of markets — just the USA, UK, Germany, Italy, Austria and Israel. For now, I intend to continue to use Mobivox since they’ve provided a local Ottawa [Toronto] number for me to call.
And Mobivox gives me free access to my Skype contacts from mobile handsets as well.
