Fusion Telecommunications International, Inc. (AMEX:FSN), a global VoIP service provider, today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Jinti, a rapidly growing Chinese community services site that today attracts in excess of 3 Million unique visitors from mainland China each month.
As part of the agreement, Fusion will market its Efonica brand of VoIP services throughout the Jinti website. In addition to category exclusivity, the Efonica service offerings will be integrated into Jinti’s consumer registration process. As visitors register for Jinti services, they will be prompted to register for Efonica’s offering.
“We are very pleased to enter into this relationship with Jinti, a key player in the burgeoning Chinese Internet marketplace. Jinti’s unique community services website continues to experience dramatic growth through unique service offerings and the execution of a dynamic business model. With a growing Internet community, presently numbering over 120 Million people online, China represents a key market for Fusion in the Asian Region and a tremendous opportunity for the Company to continue to grow our worldwide community of users” said Matthew Rosen, President and CEO of Fusion.
“Fusion’s unique Efonica VoIP services are a very good complement to our community services website, giving our customers a chance to speak with one another and connect with friends and relatives for a significant savings. With over 400,000 subscribers registered in less than two months, Efonica represents a rapidly growing, cutting-edge service we are confident will appeal to the Chinese marketplace. We also believe that Jinti’s 500,000 registered users with over 3 million unique visitors a month offers US firms like Fusion a unique opportunity to rapidly establish themselves in the China market.” said Jin Zhao, President and CEO of Jinti.
Efonica offers consumers the ability to call each other for free using their existing landline or mobile telephone numbers. Calls can be made to and from any combination of PCs, Internet phones and regular telephones (with a SIP adapter), connected to either a wireless, broadband or dial-up Internet connection. The service was introduced incorporating Fusion’s patent-pending Worldwide Internet Area CodeTM, which combined with a subscriber’s existing telephone number, further simplifies the process of making a call.
