LAKE OSWEGO, Ore., April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Funbers Telecom Corp today announced that AddaLineTM – an app turning smartphones into a carrier-grade telecom service providing unlimited domestic calls and texting in the U.S. and Canada – now costs only $5 a line a month.
Any number of numbers may be chosen from those available in the U.S., Canada, UK and – for the first time – Belgium and Sweden. Extended features for businesses including number transfers and porting costs an extra $5 per month. Provisioning active service takes less than five seconds.
"Apps are disrupting how people buy telecom services, and AddaLine's $5 price point makes the proposition all the more clear: you can crush the cost of communicating by turning smartphones into many phones," said Funbers CEO Samuel Fornes. "Lots of subscribers simply add a second line to their phone.
"Many are businesses discovering they can – and should – embed work phones inside of their employees' own smartphones, in some instances realizing annual savings totaling tens of thousands of dollars," Fornes said.
Calls placed anywhere worldwide between AddaLine provisioned lines are always free. Outside the U.S. and Canada – where unlimited calling plans are infeasible – AddaLine slashes costs by providing free calls to number groups in more than 30 countries. This is possible because AddaLine is built to secure the same carrier-exchange pricing that operators pay for access to each other's networks. Where free calling isn't available, AddaLine charges the carrier wholesale rates. (Rates calculated at https://www.addaline.com/rates).
