netTALK was founded in 2008 by Anastasios “Takis” Kyriakidess with the idea of leveraging the ongoing technology revolution to give consumers freedom of choice and to liberate them from outdated, expensive, legacy systems. netTALK provides continuous innovation and easy-to-use products at an affordable price, with superior customer service.
Mr. Kyriakides and Team netTALK are first implementing this dynamic vision in the everyday realm of telephone calls. netTALK’s revolutionary flagship product, the netTALK DUO, enables anyone to Fire Your Phone Company® and never pay a monthly phone bill again. The netTALK DUO has been crowned an “Editor’s Choice” by PCMag.com and Laptop Magazine, and has received "rave reviews" in the major media, including the New York Times, GigaOM, PCWorld and elsewhere. Available at many major retailers and e-tailers, and a long-time bestseller on Walmart.com, the netTALK DUO and the netTALK smartphone app are freeing consumers and small business owners from monthly phone bills and cellular talk minutes, alike.
However, this is just the beginning. With the recent acquisition of a large cloud and data center featuring a 150-foot, 4G-enabled cellular tower, and other developments in the works, netTALK plans to bring its model of liberating consumers and small businesses from entrenched, expensive service providers into other areas.
The netTALK DUO WiFi ® is a portable digital phone device that allows users to make crystal clear calls over high-speed Internet using any standard home phone with no contracts and no monthly bills. Enjoy free calling features such as call waiting, conference calling, Enhanced 911, 411 directory assistance, visual voicemail, and more
The Mobile App allows you to make calls via your mobile phone’s and tablet’s Internet connection and is available for mobile phones and tablets that have the iOS or Android operating systems installed on them. .
Works with any of these devices:
