Still celebrating its FCC state regulation victory, Vonage was happy to announce a new partnership that will let the VoIP provider spread its service throughout cities in the southeast. Vonage is joining MediaWorks, an Atlanta, GA-based cable operator that serves Atlanta, Birmingham, AL; Memphis, TN; Raleigh, NC and West Palm, FL.
"We have tapped into MediaWorks’ network of customers to provide Vonage as part of its comprehensive, bundled services," said Kevin Guilford, national account manager, Private Label Sales Channel of Vonage. "Vonage complements MediaWorks quality of service and expands its high-speed Internet offering to include flat-rate, full-featured broadband telephony service.
"According to the agreement, MediaWorks’ cable and broadband subscribers residing within the southeastern U.S. can select from Vonage's residential and small business plans offering flat rate full-featured calling ranging from $14.99 to $49.99 monthly. The product will be branded "VoiceWorks powered by Vonage," and is expected to launch next month.
This partnership will allow MediaWorks’ subscribers to now access Vonage’s residential and small business calling plans that include features like call waiting, voicemail and caller ID, in addition to new, advanced proprietary features that are not currently available from traditional phone services, such as selecting your own area code, online account management and Web-based voicemail retrieval.
"MediaWorks is very excited about its new program with Vonage," reported Bryan J. Rader, CEO of MediaWorks. "We believe this new service will be a strong addition to our product mix and be well-received by our subscribers."
