IDT uses Wi-Fi to offer cheaper cell service
By Paul Davidson, USA TODAY
Believe it or not, 43% of U.S. consumers still don’t have a cell phone many for budget reasons.
Now, long-distance company IDT is aiming at low- to moderate-income holdouts with a new breed of inexpensive service that offers mobile service but only in certain areas.
IDT plans to introduce a semi-mobile phone service that works in areas equipped with Wi-Fi, a popular wireless technology linked to the Internet.
