Rebtel Buying a Part of Talkster

Rebtel, the Stockholm, Sweden-based VoIP service provider, is buying Free World Dialing, a division of Toronto-based VoIP service provider, Talkster for an undisclosed amount. As part of the agreement, Rebtel will carry all of Talkster’s international traffic over its network. Late last year, Rebtel acquired Gorilla Mobile to expand is business to Asia. The company had switched to a white-label model in 2008 and since then has been trying to find steady growth.

The company says it has more than 4 million registered customers worldwide, and is adding more than 100,000 new users each month. It has $20 million in sales in 2009 up 75 percent vs. 2008. Rebtel expects to grow at a similar rate in 2010, the company said.
