JAJAH Brings Free and Low Cost Phone Calls to Canadians

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - August 15, 2007) - JAJAH, the world's most innovative communication company, today announced its popular web-based calling service has been upgraded for use in Canada.

In response to customer demand, JAJAH today announced that making free and ultra-low cost JAJAH calls from Canada is even easier than before by adding support for Canadian currency to its popular web-based calling solution. On the JAJAH rates webpage (, users select the Canadian dollar (CAD) under the currency drop down menu along with the country you are calling from and the one you want to call to view corresponding call rates, as low as 4 cents a minute.

"Canadians have been finding JAJAH on their own and have been asking us for this upgrade. We hope this brings even more Canadian users to our system and enjoy low cost calls," said Roman Scharf, JAJAH co-founder. "With the JAJAH web-activated calling solution, there is no download, no installation and no long-term contract required to make free and ultra-low cost long-distance and international calls. JAJAH is the first service of its kind designed for all phone users who appreciate saving money."

"Canada is a prime market for JAJAH, especially in large cities like Toronto and Vancouver, where overseas calling is quite regular," said Jon Arnold, Principal of J Arnold & Associates, an independent VoIP consultancy in Toronto. "The savings will be very attractive to mobile users, and with support now for payment in Canadian currency, I expect to see a lot of interest in JAJAH here."

To make a JAJAH call, consumers simply visit, enter their regular phone number, then the phone number they want to call, and press the "CALL" button. JAJAH does the rest and rings both parties on their actual phones (landline or mobile). The call isn't any different from other normal phone conversations, only significantly cheaper.

"If you can Google, you can JAJAH," says Scharf. "We've made it easy and affordable for consumers to call across Canada, and there is no need to switch your current phone or service."

Current long-distance rates are staggering for Canadians. Consumers pay as much as 10 cents per minute to call across Canada and/or the U.S. with mobile bundles and 30 cents per minute for additional minutes.

For the first time Canadian consumers have a calling option that makes dollars and sense. With JAJAH, calls to other registered users across Canada or to the U.S. on a landline or mobile phone is FREE for up to 30 minutes each day for calls initiated from PCs.
