Masmovil partners with Fring for mobile IM service - Spain

Masmovil has entered into an agreement with Fring to enable its customers to use Fring as a mobile IM service. This will enable customers to access Skype, MSN, Facebook and Twitter free of charge directly from their mobile handsets. However, for customers with no Wi-Fi connection on mobile phones, the Skype service will cost EUR 0.60 (USD 0.76) per hour, using the operator’s 3.5G service.

According to Meinrad Spenger, Chief Executive Officer of Masmovil, the company has added more than 100,000 customers on its network. Masmovil has also launched a new street marketing campaign, ‘Hazte un Masmovil’, whereby participants can earn money if they complete various missions set by the company. Masmovil will pay EUR 80 (USD 101.38) per month to customers who paint their cars with the Masmovil logo.
