HOLMDEL, N.J., Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Nearly 20 percent1 of international calls are made using prepaid calling cards, but according to an FCC Enforcement Advisory2, these cards often come with undisclosed fees, unreliable service and higher-than-advertised rates. Vonage today launched a new product that will answer the FCC's call for a better calling card option — the Vonage Digital Calling Card.
The Vonage Digital Calling Card is a pay-as-you-go calling card alternative available online through an easy-to-use self-service website. Its rates are, on average, 75 percent lower than those offered by home and wireless carriers3 on international calls, without the hidden fees often associated with calling cards. The Vonage Digital Calling Card can be used to call locations worldwide including popular destinations such as India, Mexico, Vietnam, South Korea and the U.K. Vonage
Digital Calling Card customers will receive bonus calling credits with every purchase over $5.00. For example, customers will earn $10.00 in calling credits for each $25.00 purchase they make. Customers do not need to be a Vonage home service subscriber to use the service.
