Yahoo has announced that its Yahoo Messenger VoIP calls are to be outsourced to Jajah.
Under the terms of the agreement, the “Phone In” and “Phone Out” service will enable consumers to make low-cost PC-to-phone and phone-to-PC voice calls over the Jajah network to more than 200 countries using Yahoo Messenger. Details of the deal between the two companies have not been disclosed
Jajah will take over the provision of the telephony infrastructure, payment processing, and customer care for Yahoo’s premium voice users who make and receive voice calls through Yahoo Messenger. They have been able to make and receive voice calls on their PC to and from landline and mobile phones since 2006.
Yahoo Messenger has 97 million users worldwide but it is not known how many of them pay for premium voice services. With headquarters in Silicon Valley, Jajah has attracted 10 million users in its two years of operation.
