Lingo Is 1st VoIP Phone Service to Offer Unlimited Calling to Mexico

The new Lingo "Unlimited Mexico" VoIP plan provides members of the U.S. Mexican community, among others, the opportunity to use their broadband Internet connections and phones to call family and business associates in Mexico as often as they like, for $29.95 per month. Like other Lingo VoIP offerings, the plan also includes unlimited phone calls in the U.S. and to Canada.


With the addition of this VoIP calling plan, along with recently introduced "local" phone numbers in top Mexican markets, Lingo (http://www.lingo.com/) now offers more options for calling to and from Mexico than any major broadband Internet phone service available today.
"As the market leader for affordable international VoIP calling services, Lingo is setting another precedent by adding the first unlimited Internet calling plan to Mexico," said Cathy Peterson, director of marketing for Lingo. "Now the U.S. Mexican community, including more than 20 million Mexican Americans, can call family and friends in Mexico and talk on the phone as much as they like with Lingo."

Subscription to Lingo's Unlimited Mexico plan is free for the first month, and $29.95 per month thereafter. The plan includes:
* Unlimited calls to Mexico (landline)
* Unlimited local and long distance calls in the U.S. and to Canada
(including Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands)
* Very low rates to 200+ other international locations
