"We are very excited about our new Five Minutes Free promotion, which enables anyone to try VIP's Global Calling Account service free of charge, with no obligation and no payments required. If customers love the service, as we are sure they will, they can simply add credit to the account and carry on making calls, " said Peter Rogers, Senior Vice President at VIP Communications. "We especially wanted to launch the promotion at the ESFNA event to say thank you to our large and growing base of Ethiopian customers. We believe that our service offers the perfect mix of excellent connection quality and highly competitive calling rates and this is why the Ethiopian community has, in many cases, chosen VIP to help them stay in touch with friends, family and business contacts overseas."

This news comes on the heels of VIP Communications' recent announcement that it has reduced the calling rates for customers to Ethiopia by more than 12%, dropping the landline rate to Ethiopia to 21.9c per minute and the mobile rate to 24.9c per minute.

This announcement continues to build on the momentum VIP Communications has achieved recently, and solidifies its presence as the leading international calling provider to expats living in the US. Over the past year alone, the company has increased its customer base by more than 40% and expanded its service portfolio to include business and mobile services.
