Vonage extends Canadians' home phone rates to mobile

HOLMDEL, NJ – Vonage said Thursday that Canadian customers may now extend their home calling rates to their mobile phones through its Vonage Extensions service offering.

Free to all Vonage customers in Canada, the Extensions service lets residential customers with unlimited calling plans to specific international destinations now have unlimited calling to those same destinations from their mobile phones.  All other per-minute calls are charged at the same rates as their home calling plan.

A free mobile Extensions app for iPhone and Android is also available, which allows one-touch dialing from a user's existing mobile contact list.  Using the Extensions app, Vonage customers can make high-quality calls via the Vonage network anywhere Wi-Fi is available, including areas with poor cellular coverage or when traveling to avoid roaming fees. Calls can also be made over 3G/4G networks, though data rates may apply.

"Extensions enables new and existing Vonage customers to call anywhere in Canada and internationally when they're away from home for no additional cost, making our home phone plans more versatile and flexible," said chief marketing officer Barbara Goodstein, in the news release. "We are excited to launch Extensions in Canada to enhance our customers' calling experience and to provide them with even greater value."
