Ooma is stepping up their offering in the international calling game. The VoIP service providers latest plans are about as competitive as can be. Watch out, Vonage, Ooma has your mom’s number.
There’s now three international plans:
- $9.99 for 1,000 minutes to 70 countries
- $9.99 for “bulk discount” rates to all other countries
- $9.99 availble to just Ooma Premier customers combines the 1,000 minutes plan to 70 countries with the discounted rate plan for all other countries.
Of course the main difference between Ooma and other services like Vonage is that while Ooma has significantly lower calling plans (most are free), customers are required to buy pricey hardware upfront. Where with, say, Vonage, most plans include the cost of the hardware. Either way is a hell of a lot lower cost than what cable providers or traditional telphone providers charge though.
