Avantimobile advances with foreign connections
London UK 10th January 2006

Avantimobile, the low-cost mobile service, launched in the UK in November 2005 challenging the traditional mobile network operators is now receiving enquiries from major distribution partners outside the UK. Avantimobile has developed an intelligent automated routing application for the latest generation of Smartphones, Java phones and Pocket PC mobile-PDAs. Avantimobile has harnessed the power of the latest mobile phones to make savings of up to 80% off the costs of calls from mobile phones in the UK. Similar savings are also available with non-UK operators.

Once registered for the Avantimobile service, the customer simply dials the required phone number, as they do now, and Avantimobile makes instantaneous decisions on how best to route the call to reduce the cost of it. By optimising the routing of these calls over the Avantimobile platform, these call costs can be significantly reduced.

Tony Lloyd-Weston, Managing Director of OpenAir, the company behind Avantimobile, states, “Since our UK launch, we’ve had tremendous interest in Avantimobile from over 40 UK re-sellers, many from the existing mobile distribution channels, with some of the biggest names in web-based mobile supplies in the UK and Europe approaching us to become re-sellers of our services. In addition to UK, Ireland, Germany, Italy and the USA, we have had serious enquiries from as far as Malaysia, Mauritius, Colombia, India and Australia. Early 2006 will see confirmation of major distribution agreements in many of these countries.”

Avantimobile provides re-seller partners with a complete product to market, as most customers don’t have to change existing phones, contracts or numbers, and, due to the simplicity of use, it requires little on-going customer service. With Avantimobile now able to address the needs of about 70% of mobile phone users in the World market, we expect many mobile dealers will want to consider this alternative and lucrative market sector, away from the tightly controlled, traditional routes provided by the existing mobile network operators.”

Lloyd-Weston continues, ”In utilising VoIP connectivity with our switch, we can easily replicate the services provided in the UK for almost anywhere in the World, providing an immediacy of access to our services and a low-cost solution for traditional and non-traditional mobile distributors.”

Interested customers can initially register and manage their accounts 24 hours a day on-line at where further details of Avantimobile are available and other examples of potential savings to be made.
