Teltran and Norweb to Launch VoIP Services in the UK

Global telecommunications company Teltran International and the UK's Norweb Telecom are about to launch Voice-over IP (VoIP) services in the UK.

The collaboration between the two companies means that traffic can be originated in the UK for worldwide distribution over Teltran's VoIP network -- or originate overseas and terminate in the UK.

"Our alliance with Norweb represents another significant step in Teltran's mission to build a worldwide presence in the VoIP arena," said Teltran president and CEO Byron R. Lerner.

"The UK is the gateway for Teltran as we continue to introduce our VoIP network to the European community. The United Kingdom is one of the world's leading telecommunications centres and we shall continue to expand our network as a result of our alliance with Norweb."

In September, Norweb and Telran first announced their strategic alliance. The VoIP venture is the first project resulting from it.

"I am tremendously excited that we have been able to execute this part of the plan so quickly and I look forward with great anticipation to the next step in our business plan as the rollout between Teltran and Norweb moves into its next phase," said Mike Neville, Norweb's director of wholesale services and business development.

Both Norweb and Teltran provide voice and data services to businesses. Teltran is licensed by the FCC as a global facilities-based common carrier.
