Bethpage, NY (PRWEB) October 28, 2013
Cablevision Systems Corp. today announced that Optimum Voice customers can now call more than 50 popular global destinations for 2 cents per minute without subscribing to an additional international calling plan – a more convenient and less expensive international phone service. Requiring no activation or setup, this unique calling option allows Optimum Voice customers to make low cost international calls without signing up for a pre-authorized international plan.
In addition to the low cost, Optimum Voice offers features such as the ability for customers to link their mobile phone with their Optimum Voice home phone service to ensure that they are paying the same low rates when they place international calls from their cell phones while on the go. This enables customers to take even greater advantage of Optimum Voice’s low international rates, which are substantially lower than competitors.
“We make it easy for our customers to connect with the world, and Optimum Voice’s new flexible, cost-effective international calling option provides customers with tremendous savings and convenience. With rates as low as 2 cents per minute, customers simply pick up the phone and dial friends and family around the world. They only pay for what they use with our unique calling service,” said Gemma Toner, Cablevision’s senior vice president of broadband product management.
Other popular Optimum Voice features include the ability to check messages by phone or online, see caller ID on Optimum TV and view call history and forwarding calls to a specified alternate phone number. Optimum Voice provides the security of enhanced 911 access (E-911) for every customer and provides a local number portability option, so new customers who switch from other telephone companies can keep their existing phone number.
Optimum Voice service, available to Optimum Online customers and Optimum TV customers, is carried over Cablevision’s network, not the public Internet, and offers customers a highly reliable voice service with superior value.
