Monday, March 11th, 2013

ITSPA Award Best Consumer VoIP 2013 We are proud to announce that Localphone attended the ITSPA Awards 2013 in London last week and were announced as the winners of the Best Consumer VoIP category! ITSPA (The Internet Telephony Services Providers’ Association), the voice of the UK VoIP industry, held its annual awards ceremony in the House of Commons last week in London. The awards were hosted by Dr Julian Huppert MP, Vice Chair of the Parliamentary Internet Communications and Technology Forum and were presented in 8 categories. Localphone were announced the proud winners of the Best Consumer VoIP Award, beating BT to the title, which was announced as the runner up with Highly Commended.

All entrants had to submit a written case study and self-assessment, which were independently reviewed by the ITSPA Awards judges and Malden Electronics conducted two months of technical testing for three of the categories, including Best Consumer VoIP. Full details of the awards can be found at

Paul Cusack, CEO and founder of Localphone, said, ‘It is a great honour to receive the ITSPA 2013 Award for Best Consumer VoIP and I am extremely proud of this achievement and recognition. It wouldn’t have been possible without the help from all the Localphone employees who have worked so hard to make our service world class, so I’d like to offer my personal appreciation to them. We have lots of exciting plans and product development scheduled in for 2013 and we look forward to announcing these to the public in the coming months as well as entering more categories at the ITSPA Awards next year.’

Localphone customer reviews

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

At Localphone we’re proud to be offering one of the best international calling services in the world. We recently received some great feedback from a new customer, Tony Shaw, who has given us permission to publish his comments. If you’re not yet a Localphone customer we hope this review will encourage you to sign up to our service and give us a try.

“A friend of mine wanted to ring her sister in Germany and I said ‘not a problem,’ so she spent 16 minutes talking to her sister in Germany and her sister kept telling her to hang up as this would cost her a fortune. My friend then asked me how much it had cost to ring Germany expecting it to be $30 or more and she nearly fell over backwards when I told her it had only cost 11 cents which is cheaper than a local call! So my advice is to anyone in the world who make international calls and have to pay national phone calls to sign up to Localphone. Find a telephone company that offers free national calls, then join Localphone and you will be amazed at the low price of international calls. Also the ease of not having to dial 32 phone numbers to get to a destination like you have to do if you are using a phone card. Another advantage I have found of Localphone is if I list all my local friends on Localphone I can find their phone numbers easily instead of having to go to the white pages or phone directory.” Tony Shaw

Spanish language added to the Localphone website

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

We are pleased to announce that we have launched a localized version of the Localphone website in Spanish. If you have your Internet browser set to Spanish you will see a pop up message asking you whether you would like to view the Spanish version of the website. Customers will be able to create an account, add credit and send SMS text messages in Spanish. Users who don’t automatically see the pop up message can click the language link in the footer or change it in your account settings.

We hope the new language option will encourage new customers to use the service, as well as making the website more accessible for our existing customers. Visit the new Localphone Spanish website.

This is the first of many languages that will be added to the website. CEO and founder of Localphone, Paul Cusack, said, ‘We are delighted to have added Spanish to our website. The company goal is to become a multilingual service and we look forward to adding more languages over the coming months.’
