  • 24 August, 2005 17:01

<p>*Gold Coast based telecommunications company Telecorp Limited has announced it will link its just launched internet phone service, GOTalk Broadband Voice, with its popular cheap phone card range enabling customers to access rates 30-50% below standard Telstra phone charges.
*Telecorp is the only phone company in Australia which currently offers both phone cards and VoIP internet phones as part of its range of services – and therefore is the only company that can link both.
For further detail please contact Terry Quinn 0439 710 418 or CEO Steve Picton 07 55 536 808.</p>
<p>Sydney Wednesday August 24: Telecorp Limited, the highly successful, profitable, and fast growing Gold Coast based telco has announced plans to link its multi brand $10 million a month CardCall phone card operation to its recently launched GOtalk Broadband Voice VoIP Internet Phone service - the first time such a cheap phone card/VoIP combination will be available to Australian consumers.</p>
<p>Telecorp Limited is Australia's only telco currently offering both cheap pre and post paid phone cards AND a VoIP Internet Phone service.</p>
<p>The convergence will allow phone users to access phone rates 30 - 50% below the standard charges offered by Telstra and will put further pressure on the Australian telecommunications giant to launch its own VoIP service to counter the small but fast growing Internet phone and phone card market.</p>
<p>Media Background:</p>
<p>Steve Picton, former AAPT heavyweight and now CEO of fast growing Gold Coast based telco Telecorp Limited believes his company's $10 million a month cash flow domination of the youth/traveller/ethnic "net savy" phone card market will help him establish a profitable competitive presence in the low cost VoIP Net Phone sector before Telstra launches its promised service later this year.</p>
<p>Media interviews and GOtalk Broadband Voice review downloads can be arranged by contacting Terry Quinn on 0439 710 418 or going to www.gotalk.com.au</p>
<p>Stephen Picton CEO Telecorp Limited PROFILE:</p>
<p>Prior to forming TELECORP LIMITED (with high profile Chairman Trevor Rowe, Citigroup Chairman, ASX Director and and Chancellor of Bond University), Mr Stephen Picton, was Group Director, Strategic Development, AAPT. During his years with AAPT Mr Picton was responsible for the overall Strategic Development of AAPT since joining as Director of Marketing in 1996. During that period he oversaw a number of key initiatives, such as AAPT's entry into the Wholesale market, the development of a broad-based product portfolio and the rebranding of the company. He also managed AAPT's IPO process and the many acquisitions and alliances carried out by AAPT in areas such as data, internet, satellite, mobile and voice services. Prior to joining AAPT, Mr Picton spent 9 years with BT (British Telecom) in a variety of Sales &amp; Business Development roles at a senior executive level.</p>
<p>Telecorp Limited is Australia's most successful pre and post paid phone card operator, selling in excess of 300,000 new phone cards worth more than $10 million each month to the mainly youth/student/traveller and ethnic markets via 30,000 retailers (including $2million a month from free standing eftpos kiosks) - and growing at over 30% a year. With Telstra connecting around 40,000 broadband customers a month, Telecorp plans to use their domination of this market to bundle VoIP Net Phone services to these cost conscious net savvy markets.</p>
