Residents can now fire their phone company and enjoy one of the most
competitive and innovative phone plans in Canada
MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 6 /CNW/ - In its continuing effort to bring the
benefits of digital phone service to all Canadians, Vonage Canada today
announced the availability of its flat-rate, full-featured home phone service
in Brandon, Manitoba. This announcement comes on the same day Vonage launches
local phone service in Saskatchewan's two largest cities, Regina and
"I am excited that consumers in Brandon can now cut the cord with their
existing phone company, and experience the freedom that Vonage phone service
provides and enjoy great savings on their monthly phone bill," said Joe
Parent, vice-president of marketing and business development, Vonage Canada.
"Our Brandon expansion is another piece of the puzzle in making Vonage service
available to as many Canadians as possible."
With Vonage, local residents can enjoy unlimited local and long distance
calling for one low flat monthly fee, and still keep their existing phone
number. Unlike services touted by big phone companies and cable firms, all
Vonage's flat rate phone plans include 20 standard and non-standard phone
features, including call waiting, caller ID, voice mail to email and much
more. Also unique to Vonage and Internet phone service is the ability to
travel anywhere around the world with your local phone number. As well, with
Vonage there are no extra fees, no extra charges and no costly and confusing
bundled offers designed to tether you to one service provider.
Vonage also gives customers the added benefit of passing along
long-distance savings to friends and family who aren't even Vonage customers.
With V-Access anyone can call a Vonage customer anywhere in the world for the
price of a local call simply by dialing a local Vonage access number. Because
the call is treated similar to a toll-free call, no long-distance charges or
international fees apply.
To get started using Vonage, all that's needed is a high speed Internet
connection and a wallet size Vonage phone adapter. The adapter, which Vonage
can provide free of charge, sends calls through the Internet instead of a
regular phone line. People simply plug their existing touch-tone telephone and
their high-speed Internet connection into their Vonage phone adapter, and they
have dial tone. It's full-service phone service without using an old-fashioned
