Blyke: Free Mobile Calling

I just can’t believe how much cheaper it gets over time to use communications services. When I was a teenager we paid somewhere around 25 cents per minute just to call one state away. Before we had fax machines we had to spend around ten dollars to get a document across the country. IP communications has changed all of this.
 
But things keep getting better and better in the telecom world. In the UK you can now talk on your cell phone for free if you choose to see ads on your device. The company providing this service is called Blyke and there is a great article about it in today’s New York Times.
 
Look around your world and you will see prices going higher on just about everything else except telecom. Electricity, oil, gas, property taxes, etc. Even milk and eggs are getting more expensive. Communications on the other hand continues to go lower in price.
 
This is great for consumers and for companies who can figure out how to make money via advertising on mobile devices. Communications has been and continues to be one of the few areas that gives more for less and is truly a friend of the consumer/business.

    wow! great idea and i am sure it will work very well.
    as the product manger for a mobile advertising company from india, i belive in this idea of selling relevant and cotextual ads to mobile phones for free calls.
    if implemented in india, it would work great as well or any other country for that matter .
