New IDD Service Providers join fast-growing ZONE1511


Singapore, September 12, 2000 – TelaPortal (S) Pte Ltd announced today that it has finalised agreements with two additional IDD service providers -- Pan Asia Telecom (S) Pte Ltd and Easi-Connect Pte Ltd.  Pan Asia Telecom (S) Pte Ltd and Easi-Connect Pte Ltd join 11 other IDD service providers in TelaPortal’s ZONE1511, an Internet IDD service portal giving home and business users better control over IDD call charges. 

Since its launch last month, ZONE1511 has expanded the number of service providers on the portal in its continuing effort to offer more choice to its members. “Customers can now select Pan Asia as one of their IDD service providers.  We are also delighted that Easi-Connect has agreed to offer its IDD service via ZONE1511,” said Yvonne Lee, managing director of TelaPortal (S) Pte Ltd. “Together with our existing partners, ZONE1511 is able to offer customers price transparency and eliminate the hassle of signing up with different IDD service providers individually.” 

“Customers can now benefit from our competitive IDD rates,” said Augustine Ler, executive vice president of Pan Asia Telecom (S) Pte Ltd. “Through ZONE1511, we are able to expand beyond our traditional IDD wholesale business and tap into the retail market without the extensive infrastructure required.” 

“We see ZONE1511 as an alternative channel for us to reach an even greater number of customers. It offers customers the convenience of accessing different service providers based on rates and quality and we are confident that customers will select Easi-Connect,” said Wing Tan, president of Easi-Connect Pte Ltd.
