Paul Falchi, CEO of TalkFree, stated that, “We’re proud that the distribution of our web based applications and tools and our business model have been so readily accepted by local environments in emerging markets. We’re exporting the latest Silicon Valley VoIP small business solutions and introducing revolutionary, low-cost pricing telecom services. TalkFree’s unique combination of technology and service provides an incredible opportunity to regions which still are facing legacy, monopoly tariffs.”
