Vonage Brings London Over the Pond


Vonage Holdings Corp. voice-over-Internet-protocol subscribers in the United States and Canada can now have virtual numbers with London city codes.

Virtual phone numbers are inexpensive secondary numbers that ring to the primary Vonage line, making it less expensive for people in London to reach the United States and Canada, as they will be dialing numbers that are local to their calling area.

The London virtual numbers cost $4.99 per month in the United States and $C7.99 per month in Canada.

"For several months, Vonage's customers have been requesting the ability to have London telephone numbers to communicate with family members, friends and business associates," chairman and CEO Jeffrey A. Citron said in a prepared statement.

"Vonage has responded quickly to our customers' demands that we make keeping in contact with friends and loved ones abroad easier and more convenient by offering a local number as a point of contact, no matter where you are in the world," he added.
