Vonage Canada launches service in Prairies

Briefs | 06/06/2007 4:13 pm EDT

Residents in Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Regina can now choose to get local and long distance services for a flat fee from Vonage Canada. The company announced service availability in those three cities on June 6. Referring to the launch in Saskatchewan's two largest cities, Vonage Canada VP of marketing and business development Joe Parent said "For years, residents of Regina and Saskatoon have been overcharged by their phone company. That's all changed with Vonage. Now people can enjoy greater savings and features with Vonage." The Ontario-based pure-play VoIP provider noted in a news release that nearly two thirds of a recent Decima Research survey felt that to get a discount on a service they had to subscribe to multiple services from the same company. As well, nearly half indicated they were willing to "de-bundle" their telephone service from broader communications packages in return for better value and more features.
