Skuku's unique solutions transform the user's PC into his personal mobile phone, keeping all of the phone's features and allowing low-cost VoIP.
Additionally, Skuku users can continue to enjoy all the other features of their mobile phone, including contact lists and text messaging. Skuku products enable the placing and receiving of international calls from anywhere in the world at low IP tariffs, while inter-network calls are free between Skuku users.
