Vonage Holdings Corporation Key Developments

Vonage Launches Mexico Freedom Plan

Vonage launched the Mexico Freedom plan. The Mexico Freedom plan is the only residential calling plan offering unlimited calling both to and from Mexico for both landlines and mobile phones, and is available for $29.99 per month (plus taxes and fees) with a one-year agreement. Staying in touch over the phone can be cost prohibitive for many with friends and family in Mexico. Since the cost of calls from Mexico to the US can be expensive, the burden often falls to those living in the US to call Mexico. The Mexico Freedom plan not only provides unlimited calling to address the increasing need and desire to call mobile phones throughout Mexico, it also offers Local Access Numbers in Mexico. Local Access Numbers are phone numbers in Mexico that friends and family can call to reach a Vonage customer, giving them the freedom to call a Vonage customer in US for the price of a local call. Customers can also use their home phone plan to make and receive calls on their iPhone or Android smartphones anywhere there is a Wi-Fi or data connection with the Vonage Extensions App. Once installed, calls to a customer's home number will ring on the linked smartphones, ensuring customers never miss a call, can keep their mobile numbers private and can make low-cost international calls from virtually anywhere. With Wi-Fi calling, customers can use Vonage service on mobiles in areas with poor cellular coverage, including their homes. In addition to unlimited calls to Mexico, the Vonage Mexico Freedom plan provides unlimited calling throughout the US, Canada and Puerto Rico.
