Vonage Announces Unlimited Flat Rate Calling Around the World and Readable Voicemail For $24.99/MO

-Unlimited Calling to More Than 60 Countries and the U.S.-
-Readable Voicemail Delivered to PC or Mobile Phone-

HOLMDEL, N.J., Aug 20, 2009 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Today, Vonage introduced 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 recognizes that everyone has communication needs that extend beyond the walls of their homes; and many of our customers live in communities with borders that extend beyond the U.S. We have created Vonage Visual Voicemail and Vonage World to enable customers to stay connected to the people they care about, whether they are down the street or across an ocean," said Marc Lefar, CEO of Vonage. "These new services continue our tradition of using technology to create high value and affordable prices to our current and future customers."

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.

Vonage World details are available at www.vonage.com or by calling (800) 590-1266. To follow Vonage on Twitter, please visit www.twitter.com/vonage_voice. Become a fan of Vonage on Facebook by going to www.facebook.com/vonage.
