Best Cheap International Call Provider of 2008

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

Localphone was recently named Best Cheap International Call Provider of 2008 by readers of the VoIPGuides blog. We are particularly proud of this achievement as this award was voted for by consumers and reflects our ongoing commitment to great rates and quality routes.

When announcing the results VoIPGuides said of our landslide victory (Localphone gained 65% of the vote):

No surprises here. Localphone totally washed away all competitors. I guess its time for other VOIP Providers to start looking at Localphone as their leader and learn from them.

Thank you all for your support. As always, let us know if there is anything we can do to make Localphone even better in 2009.

We have recently expanded our access number coverage to offer Localphone’s cheap international calling service to customers in Malta, El Salvador, and the Dominican Republic. If you have friends or family in these countries—or anywhere else for that matter—don’t forget to recommend Localphone to them to earn free calling credit.

We have also added or extended access number coverage in locations in the following US states: Alabama, Arizona, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, New Jersey, Texas, Virginia, and Washington.

This brings our total coverage to an impressive 66,702 access numbers in 44 countries around the world! If we don’t have access numbers in your location yet let us know and we’ll see what we can do. In the meantime, don’t forget you can still get our great rates with a broadband Internet connection and Localphone VoIP.

Get Free Minutes to China Over Chinese New Year

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

Ushering in the Year of the Ox, Chinese New Year will run from Monday 26th January to Monday 9th February. To celebrate, Localphone will be giving away free calls to Chinese landlines and mobiles each day of the festival.

For all of our customers the first 20 minutes of calls to China each day will be completely free—a massive 5 hours of free talk time over the 15 days. This should be plenty of time to wish a different friend or family member a Happy New Year every day!

We will deduct our cheap call rates to China as usual, and then on 10th February we will credit your account with a rebate for the first twenty minutes of call time to China used each day. You can find out full details on our Chinese New Year calling promotion page.
