VANCOUVER, Sept. 24 /CNW/ - Lypp (http://lypp.com) announced today the
launch of its first service, which eliminates wireless long distance costs for
Canadian BlackBerry users. Lypp's service works on any recent BlackBerry model
and does not require installation of additional software.
"While other countries are seeing their telecommunications costs falling,
Canadian wireless carriers continue to charge exorbitant rates for long
distance, as high as $0.30 per minute," said Lypp CEO Erik Lagerway. "We find
this situation unacceptable and unfair, and our solution is a simple
alternative that BlackBerry users can set up in seconds and use for calls to
anywhere in North America with no long distance charges and the call quality
and reliability of a regular phone call. To kick start our launch we're
offering the service for free to anyone who signs up via our website at
The Lypp service is available now at http://lypp.com.
Lypp is disrupting the telecommunications industry by using the data
connections and applications that already exist on cell phones and mobile
devices to give users features and pricing that the wireless carriers don't,
won't or can't offer. The Lypp service is operated and owned by Gaboogie
