HOLMDEL, N.J., Jan 22, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Vonage subscribers with "home away from home" needs or who have friends and family around the world, have a new, more affordable way to stay in touch thanks to Vonage's new V- Access. This service is currently available in the United States, Canada, France, Italy, Mexico, Spain, and the UK.
V-Access provides an access number to make calls to any Vonage phone number (or an 800-number) without paying long distance or international fees.

"We wanted to make sure that every Vonage customer and their loved ones can enjoy the savings of Vonage wherever they go," said Mike Snyder, CEO of Vonage Holdings Corp. "Once again, we are proving that Vonage goes above and beyond the traditional phone carriers by offering our customers and their families another great, inexpensive way to stay in touch while on overseas business trips, study abroad programs or just vacation."
Vonage subscribers (or anyone else) can take advantage of V-Access by visiting the "Features" section at www.vonage.com and clicking "V-Access." With a couple of clicks in the "Find an Access Number" box, anyone can obtain an available access number that will enable them to avoid long distance and international calling charges. Then make a call with a V-Access number by following these steps:
1. Dial the Local access number. 2. Dial the Vonage phone number or 800-number. 3. The call is connected without incurring long distance or international charges.
