Detailed Description

Update

Like most other players in this space, EQO helps save you money on long distance calls by bridging long distance calls over cheaper IP lines. What essentially happens is that your phone an EQO server on a local number, which transfers your call onto cheaper data lines across the internet, and then hops back onto standard phone lines and through another local number to the callee. The call only costs you minutes from your phone plan and the data cost for the VOIP line which runs 95-98% less than standard calling rates. Callers will store value for phone calls in EQO credits. However, calling another EQO user is free.
