Bigfoot to Use Net2Phone

IDT, makers of the Net2Phone Internet telephony product, Monday signed an agreement with Bigfoot International Inc. to be the Internet directory's exclusive IP telephony provider.

Net2Phone is a PC-to-phone tool that allows users to place telephone calls to anywhere in the world using the Internet. The company recently released version 9.0, which includes an improved graphical user interface, seven language integration, speed dial for up to 100 names, a 30 percent boost in performance and improved speech quality.

Under the agreement, Net2Phone will be integrated into Bigfoot's directories, enabling one-click PC-to-phone dialing from all telephone numbers listed in Bigfoot's directories. Financial terms were not disclosed.

"We are very excited to be partnering with Bigfoot, who has established both itself as well as its directories as an integral site to find people on the Internet," said Jonathan Reich, senior vice president of marketing and business development.

"Integrating Net2Phone into Bigfoot's directories will make the directories much more useful because now people won't have to get off-line in order to place a telephone call."

"Users can now search the most accurate national white pages listings on the Web and instantly call their friends and relatives with just a click and make those calls at a significantly reduced cost," said Lenny Barshack, chief executive officer and co-founder, Bigfoot International.
