The magicJack plugin
I've been wondering about this plug and play gadget called, magicJack that my sister has been so interested at. It's a device that allows free international calls. I read through the internet and found out a few interesting facts about the magicJack.
Users plug the USB end of the ‘jack’ into their Internet-connected computer, and then plug a phone into the other end of the device. The device then boots a softphone onto the screen then you can pick up the phone and start dialing.
The magicJack cost $39.99 that comes along with a memory chip, inclusive of the free one year unlimited international calls. Yearly subscriptions thereafter will cost $19.99. You can also opt for a "5 year pre-paid deal" for $100.
The business side of magicJack seems to come from the subscription plans as well as interconnect fees paid to magicJack’s CLEC partner company, YMax Communications Corp.
MagicJack is purported to have far superior call quality to other VoIP providers. Isn't that interesting?
My sister will most probably get me one when she comes home for a visit from the U.S. last week of this month. So I'm really excited about that.
