HOLMDEL, N.J., July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Vonage Holdings Corp. (NYSE: VG) is breaking beyond the four walls of the home by allowing customers to extend their Vonage home calling plans to any phone, including mobiles. The move allows customers to use Vonage’s signature unlimited(1) international calling plans from their mobile phones to call friends and family abroad. The new service offering – Extensions™ – is free to all Vonage customers and builds upon Vonage’s history of providing unsurpassed value to customers for both domestic and international calling.
“Vonage World set the benchmark for unlimited international calling. Now new and existing customers can call these unlimited countries on their mobile phones for no additional cost,” said Marc Lefar, CEO of Vonage. “This new service dramatically increases the value of Vonage’s core offering, providing customers with more flexibility and savings when making international calls.”
Existing customers can add any U.S. phone number as an extension by logging into their online account at http://www.vonage.com. The extension phone number can be a cell phone, a home phone or even an office number. Once registered, the service works like a virtual calling card. Simply dial the access number and international destination number and the call is connected over the Vonage network.
Extensions works with any mobile phone, and in the next several weeks Vonage plans to offer downloadable apps for iPhone® and Android™ devices, enabling one-touch dialing directly from the customer’s contact list.
Customers with the Vonage World plan will now have additional flexibility of unlimited calling to more than 60 countries from their cell phones in addition to from their home phone. Those who call to select Latin America as little as an hour a week can save up to 60 percent over the best international rates from major wireless carriers.* This includes major savings when using Vonage Extensions to make mobile calls to Peru ($512 average savings a year), Dominican Republic ($295 average savings a year), Columbia ($264 average savings a year) and Brazil ($198 average savings a year).*
