Raketu, a provider of voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) telephony services, unveiled today a Web-based offering which requires no software to conduct VoIP calls. RakWeb looks to be available now.
RakWeb, according to Raketu, runs over any Internet connection from broadband to dial-up service and offers consumers three options for accessing their RakOut Dial-Out account and free to cost VoIP calling rates globally. The service reportedly combines “features Of Skype And JaJah”, which are rival VoIP services. Consumers visit the Raketu Web site to enter their phone number and that of the destination number.
One interesting feature of note is that since RakWeb doesn’t require downloaded software one can make calls from almost any OS platform, including Mac, Windows and Linux.
