Jajah, the internet telephony system that connects landline phones to one another, is making parts of its service free on Tuesday to boost membership.

Jajah says its Global Calling Plan applies to landline and mobile calls to and within the United States, Canada, China, Singapore and Taiwan and to landline calls to and within Australia, the UK, Germany, France and most European countries.

Jajah works by users going to its website and entering their phone number and that of the party they want to call. Clicking a “Call” button makes their phone ring and completes the connection for them after they pick up.

The free offer will be restricted to both parties being registered with Jajah and the Silicon Valley-based compnay says it expects members to keep calls to “a reasonable amount of minutes.”

It hopes to offset the cost by selling premium calling services to members and businesses.
