Goober jumps on iPhone VoIP bandwagon

Goober Networks is jumping in the iPhone VoIP market, and it has released an app that enables cheap calls over the Internet to landlines and cell phones.

Like Skype, Goober users will be able to make VoIP calls over WiFi networks but Goober’s app will also make calls over 3G. There’s no real technical reason for Skype on iPhone to not make calls over 3G but that calling service has inked a deal with Verizon Wireless which may mean the iPhone won’t get Skype over 3G for a while. Goober said its rates are roughly 25 to 50% less than Skypes, but there is currently no free Goober-to-Goober calls, which is a bummer.

“Goober VoIP and goober for the iPhone bring us one step closer to meeting our goal as the most advanced and unifying communications solution on the market today, allowing businesses, enterprises and consumers to publish, connect and share content and communication from a single point, anytime, anywhere,” said Goober Networks CEO Peter Uhlich, in a prepared statement.
