LONGVIEW, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NetworkIP, a competitive global provider of international long distance calling products and services, today announced an agreement with Sprint to offer 3rd Party International Calling — a simpler, more cost effective ILD dialing experience for mobile virtual network operators (MVNO).
NetworkIP’s technology gives MVNOs the ability to allow or block calls to specific countries, at the subscriber level, significantly reducing the MVNO’s usage liability related to their unlimited international products. NetworkIP’s competitive cost structure for ILD calling, along with a quick time to market, enables MVNOs on the Sprint network to be more competitive in the marketplace.
In addition, subscribers can dial 011+ international numbers directly to their friends and family. There is no longer a need to prepend international dialing with PINS, access numbers, or codes to place an international call. A subscriber can quickly and easily select their calling party straight from their address book, providing the MVNO’s subscriber with a streamlined dialing experience.
“We are delighted to work with Sprint to expand their products and provide enhanced ILD calling capabilities to Sprint’s MVNO customers,” said Brian Kirk, Vice President, Business Development at NetworkIP. “At NetworkIP, we pride ourselves on our sweet service. We believe Sprint MVNOs will be delighted with the reliable and easy to use international long distance calling experience they can now offer to their consumers.”
“At Sprint, we continually search for best-in-class technologies to offer our MVNOs, providing a better experience for them and their subscribers,” said Cindy Sullivan, director-Wholesale Innovations & Solutions at Sprint. “We are eager to add NetworkIP’s ILD capabilities and features to our portfolio, enabling our MVNOs to better serve their customers and increase their competitive advantage.”
The benefits of 3rd Party International Calling for MVNOs include:
- More competitive international long distance rates and product offerings for subscribers.
- Ability to offer various ILD pricing packages to subscribers, such as Pay-as-you-Go and/or Unlimited.
- Real-time international call control and destination blocking by country and at the subscriber level.
- Eliminates the need to use a dial-around to place an international call.
- Easy integration into the MVNO’s back-office eco-system.
- Assured best call quality-to-cost ratio available.
