Steven McCarthy Founder of Global Phone Shares Insight on Kuba Farbiarz and GiConnect

Steven McCarthy, Founder of Global Phone Corporate, shares several insights on Kuba Farbiarz, founder of TriGlobe the parent company of direct marketing and MLM Telecommunication VOIP company GiConnect.

Here is a current update to the MLM Wireless Wars.

This is the first of a five part series on Kuba Farbiarz, TriGlobe and specifically GiConnect.

When Kuba Farbiarz, Founder of GiConnect and William Andreoli, Founder of Financial Destinations incorporation decided it would be best if the two companies separate because their cultures did not match as well as hope, I was disappointed. I really wanted FDIConnect to work. I have friends in both companies and know how frustrating it can be when you put so much money and energy into a product or service launch.

We had heard of some of the frustrations happening and when Kuba reached out I agreed to talk with him.

I had met Kuba early last year when he was on Tom Chenualt’s Home Base Business Radio Show, and had done some back story on his success, and was impressed at his propitiatory VOIP products the TriNet PBX Router, and the GiCell VOIP Cell Phone.

Kuba sent me the TriNet and the GiCell back around Thanksgiving and I quickly started putting the equipment through some rigorous tests. I have been so impressed with these services I have switched my home service over to the GiConnect/Global Phone VOIP service and I have been using the GiCell on a regular basis to make sure I find any bugs.

(As a disclaimer, yes I am also testing the WOW Mobile phones and services, the FDIVoice and I am waiting on the TeleVerus and the Panther Mobile phones and other products and services. We will be doing reviews on all of these services. By the way my teen girls love the WOW Phone with all of its free apps.)

Today, I called and talked with Steven McCarthy the Founder and President of Global Phone Corporation, the strategic partner and federally licensed Telecommunication carrier of TriGlobe dba GiConnect.

Let’s take a quick look at Global Phone Corporation before moving on to GiConnect.

Global Phone Corporation is a federally licensed international 214 carrier.

Global Phone was launched back in 1995 by partners Steve McCarthy and Guy Jazynka. Today Global Phone is a debt free company serving some of the most recognizable business, organizations and governments in the world, including The United Nations and The World Bank.

Global Phone Clients

Steven McCarthy called Kuba Farbiaz a long term strategic partner. He praised Kuba’s ability to launch successful direct marketing businesses worldwide and is looking forward to their continued long term relationship. Through TriGlobe, Kuba brings the customers and equipment, and Global Phone provides the VOIP telecommunication services.

For you telecommunication techies… Global Phone Corporation uses the Level 3 Communication backbone as their pipe, and use BroadSoft Telecommunication Switches.

It is this partnership between GiConnect and Global Phone which has allowed Kuba to continue to invent VOIP equipment like the


– TriNet
– GiCell
– Widget
– VOIP Video Phone
– USB Phone
and other products.

Does this mean GiConnect is without some issues? Nope, I have yet to find a technology company that does not have areas they can improve in. But, what I do see about GiConnect is the following…

– GiConnect has a strong international telecommunication carrier as a partner
– GiConnect is close to eight years old
– GiConnect has around 900K customers in their system
– GiConnect has close to 700K distributors internationally
– GiConnect is strong in South America, Indonesia, Australia, and Africa to just name a few places TriGlobe is alive and growing.

Be watching for the next GiConnect article we will be covering the GiCell VOIP Dual Band Cell Phone.

MLM Wireless War Update The Winners, Wounded and Dead MLM Mobile Companies

MLM Wireless War Update: The winners, wounded and the dead MLM mobile companies. Just think last year at this time few people were even focused on MLM Wireless Companies. Now we are seeing internationally respected magazines picking up the story and sharing the good, bad and ugly.

Well let’s take a look at the biggest to the smallest MLM Telecommunication Companies.

1. ACN – The World’s Largest Direct Seller of Telecommunication Services.

2. 5Linx – Leading the MLM VOIP Telecommunication industry by offering cutting edge technology.

3. Lightyear Wireless – Changing the way the world views wireless services.

4. GI Connect – Any Time, Anywhere, Any Place.

Those are the top four straight MLM Telecommunication companies. The bulk of their services focus on some form of traditional wireless or VOIP technology.

Now let’s take a look at the new legitimate MLM Wireless companies. In order not to upset the apple cart, I will list them in alphabetical order.

1. Financial Destinations – came on to the scene strong, but due to different cultures, they decided it would be in the best interest of their distributors to end their original strategic partnership, and move in a different direction. I am currently starting to beta test their new FDIVoice service and will do a series of articles after the test is complete.

2. TeleVerus – Seeing a change coming in MLM, TraVerus founder David Manning entered into the MLM Wireless war, with a strong balance sheet, and a vision to go all the way. However, due to the fact VOIP wireless is still very unstable, and causing a blemish on an otherwsie solid reputation, TeleVerus is halting the marketing of VOIP wireless until they have a solid product. We will be doing a three party series on TraVerus in January of 2010.

3. WOW Mobile – Liberty International founder Randy Jeffers saw an opportunity to fill a void and launched WOW Mobile. However, like David Manning, he quickly realized the VOIP technology is not ready for retail use just yet. He has teamed up with T-Mobile to offer a solid wireless service, and is halting the sales of VOIP cell phones until the technology is stable. I am beta testing technology with WOW to help create a solid platform.

Now let’s look at a couple of MLM Wireless Companies which we classify MLM Scams or MLM pyramids.

1. Global Mobile 1 – Global Verge launched Buzzirk Mobile telling the world they would be offering the first of its kind super Wireless Phone. Soon, they switched their story, and relaunched Global Mobile 1, and are offering discount cell service through distributors and retail outlets, competing with their distributors. They have continually changed their stories, and blame the field for their problems. This is the third time the owners have played this shell game.

2. ProxyComm – This company closed its doors after we went public with the fact they screwed their distributors, not once but twice. Their claim to fame was their unlimited VOIP service. The company founder stated he closed the company due to fraud. However, he and others on his corporate team claim to have long tenures in telecommunication and technology security. I fine it hard to believe a company who’s founders are experts could experience continued fraud. During the period of the purported fraud the founders launched a new company with no compensation plan.

Breaking MLM Wireless News FDI Takes The Lead In the MLM Wireless War Internationally

Breaking MLM Wireless News: FDI International, (the company formed by the merger if Financial Destination Inc, and GI Connect)takes the lead in the MLM Wireless War on an international basis.

Over the last 60 days I have talked to some of the top leaders inside of FDI to get their opinions on Financial Destination merging with GI Connect and entering into the Telecommunication arena. I was shocked to say the least because all of them were excited about the move. Now don’t get me wrong, not all of them completely understood the magnitude of what this move would do for their business, but they were on board.

Now what has really excited me is the fact FDI International really did launch in over 60 countries…
