AT&T announced the ability to call internationally at even better values.
Subscribers of AT&T CallVantage Softphone service will receive exclusive new international rates — which are up to 75 percent less than the already low AT&T CallVantage service plan rates — to approximately 40 countries. For example, AT&T CallVantage Softphone customers can call the United Kingdom, Greece, Beijing and Germany each for 2 cents a minute; Mexico City, 3 cents a minute; and New Delhi, 11 cents a minute.
"We know how important it is for families to keep in touch, whether relatives live down the street or across the world," said Anthony Tuggle, vice president of AT&T Voice Services. "As AT&T continues to expand its consumer offerings to better compete in and outside our traditional local service area, consumers are rewarded with compelling value."
The AT&T CallVantage Softphone is available as a stand-alone service or when bundled with an existing AT&T CallVantage service account. Customers can choose from the following two AT&T CallVantage Softphone service plans:
- AT&T CallVantage Softphone 300 Minute plan offers customers unlimited local calling and 300 minutes of domestic long distance calling for $10.99 a month. Additional long distance minutes will be charged at 4 cents a minute. AT&T CallVantage Softphone Unlimited plan offers customers unlimited local and long distance calling within the United States and to Canada and Puerto Rico for only $19.99 a month.
