Low cost, international call provider Vonage has developed a useful app called Vonage Extensions which lets you share your Vonage call plan with up to two smartphones, so you can make both international and UK calls from your smartphone at no extra charge. The app is available to download for free from the Android app store and enables you to utilise an existing Vonage account for no additional charge.
What’s really great about this app is just how easy it is to set up and use. All the calls included in your existing call plan can be made from your smartphone, which gives you access to international calling to 68 countries across the world. You can even make use of Vonage when you’re abroad or it can be something friends and family in other countries can benefit from. All you need to do is take your Vonage box with you and hook it up to a broadband router, then you’re ready to pick up the phone and start making calls. It’s even suitable for small business users and Vonage can you provide you with a dedicated phone number specifically for your business calls.
How come there’s no roaming charges then?
Well it’s all thanks to Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), which utilises your broadband connection rather than traditional land-based phone lines that often require costly installation. Vonage Extensions simply uses the same technology via your smartphone.
So if you’re looking to make regular international calls either for keeping in touch with friends and family abroad, or for matters of business, then take a look at the call plans on offer from Vonage. Their international call rates start from just 1p per minute which, when compared to the major mobile network provider tariffs, is a snip of the price. Making low-cost international calls from your smartphone has never been easier.
