Truphone adds 260 Hotspots to its Network with Surf and Sip

Truphone has announced the addition of 260 hotspots to the expanding estate of locations from where Truphone can be used to make free and low-cost mobile phone calls over Wi-Fi and the Internet. The 260 hotspots, operated by wireless internet service provider Surf and Sip, are currently sited within Caffe Nero coffee houses, with more locations planned to follow.

Chris Isaacs, Truphone’s Business Development Director, said, “Making mobile calls over their coffee is what many people do anyway, but now it costs less. And, because each Surf and Sip location appears the same to a Truphone handset, Truphone will even automatically log on the next time you walk into a Surf and Sip hotspot – even if it’s actually a new location to you. Your Truphone handset is really starting to look after your wallet.”

“We’re also doing something new by removing the barriers to people using public Wi-Fi hotspots and making it easy. We don’t make people sign up to anything, or enter credit card details, or do anything that makes it unattractive. It’s easy: people need only to run the Truphone Wizard once, and then start making mobile phone calls while they wait for their coffee to cool down.”

“Truphone is good for both Wi-Fi hotspot operators and it’s good for mobile phone users – especially those that like to chat over a great coffee.”
