History and products:
Messagenet was born in 1999 from COMM2000 with the launch of FreeFAX: an innovative, convenient and still popular service which allows users to receive faxes directly on their e-mail. It is soon followed by FAXin and FAXout which permit unlimited number of incoming and outgoing faxes directly from their desktop (Windows & Mac).
Messagenet enters the landline voice market (VoIP) with FreeNumber and SmartNumber, two services which allow users to choose via internet their own national or international phone numbers and use them to call worldwide at very convenient prices (as well as bring their pre-existing numbers within the Italian market).
SmartSMS is launched permitting users to send SMS easily and economically from their own PC's.
With the explosion of the mobile market, Messagenet launches the app Messagenet Talk for iOS. This free app allows same users to talk and text for free wherever they are in 3G and wifi and call out (or SMS) to any phone number worldwide at very competitive VoIP rates. The service also offers the possibility to add national or international phone numbers to one's mobile; a convenient way to eliminate roaming charges and gain flexibility on the go.
Messagenet Talk for Android is released; it represents the first Web RTC-based smartphone app that functions as part of a commercial service. This development represents Messagenet's first step towards a browser based VoIP service for smartphone and PC's and is a further testament of the company's commitment to a true, open source communications platform.
