In recent years they have seen long distance market share increase go from 15% down to 8%; mainly due to the new behavior of calling from computers. Their business model offers free long distance calling without the need for Wi-fi. The catch however the calling and receiving parties must both have the RebTel app installed. The iPhone and Blackberry versions are due out soon (provided they pass respective vetting processes).
