Claims to provide international calling at low rates through Wi-Fi or cellular networks

By CBR Staff Writer

Vonage has launched Vonage Mobile, a mobile calling application for smartphones. It is a free downloadable application that provides low-cost international calling while on Wi-Fi or cellular networks.

Vonage claims that the mobile service saves customers more than 50% on calls to many countries versus the rates charged by wireless carriers.

The company said, in the fourth quarter of 2009, the app will be enhanced to include Vonage World plan that was introduced for home service in August. This enhancement extends the ability to make unlimited calls to over 60 countries for one flat monthly fee to mobile users.

According to Vonage, the new service allows users to make calls while on Wi-Fi or cellular networks; uses your existing contact list; utilises existing cell phone number; and shows real-time balance updates and the provides the ability to automatically replenish funds in their account.
