TOLL Free Telecom launched a new phone service in Cambodia Thursday, providing free calls for customers to businesses that officials say will help increase economic activity.
Richard Chiew, marketing consultant for the Taiwanese-invested company, said Toll Free will put the numbers into operation next month.
The toll-free numbers will allow customers to call businesses – from small enterprises to large firms – without charge. Service-subscribing businesses pick up the tab, he said.
For a toll-free number subscribers pay US$30 for a deposit, $10 for registration and installation and service costs of $6 per month.
In another plan called Special Toll, subscribers and callers split the cost of the call, each paying US$0.0275 per minute.
As in the United States, toll-free numbers will have the prefix 1-800, followed by the numbers 20, 21 and 22, and then by an assigned number.
David Meng, managing director for Toll Free Telecom (Cambodia) Co, said Thursday that the initial capital for this investment was $500,000.
