introduces two new services that dramatically improve the value of its core offering. "Vonage World," provides unlimited calling around the world to more than 60 countries, including India, Mexico and China for the current flat monthly rate of $24.99.
In addition, the new Vonage Visual Voicemail service extends the company's presence onto other devices by providing unlimited "readable voicemail" delivered via email or SMS text message. Vonage is the only U.S. home phone service provider to offer voice-to-text conversion at no additional charge. Both services will become basic features of the core Vonage offering.
Vonage World includes unlimited calling to countries representing approximately 65% of the world's population (4.5 billion people). The international calling plans of most competitors are limited to certain locations within a country. However, the countries included in Vonage World are covered completely.
In response to customer demand for an improved way to access voicemail, Vonage is providing Vonage Visual Voicemail at no additional charge for Vonage World customers. This service makes voicemail readable by converting each message to text, giving customers the flexibility of viewing their voicemail as an email or SMS message on their computer or mobile device. Customers still have the option to listen to their voicemail over the phone if they choose.
