New internet telephony provider launches affordable alternative for Puerto Rico residents

At a historic time where the Puerto Rican consumer is being burdened by constant price rises in all kinds of services, the latest being a rise in their traditional telephony service, OVOPhone launches a new, more affordable alternative for their telephony needs.

OVOPhone provides telephony services over the user's high-speed or broadband internet connection (also known as VoIP or Voice over Internet Protocol). The user's voice is transmitted over his/her existing internet connection instead of traditional land phone lines, and this represents big savings for the user. "OVOPhone gives thousands of Puerto Ricans who have high-speed internet access the opportunity to drastically reduce their phone bills." - said Albizu García, President of OVO Corporation.

Unlike with other internet telephony providers, with OVOPhone all the calls made to the United States, as well as intra-island calls, are considered local, completely eliminating long distance charges for calls to the U.S. OVOPhones offers residential plans starting at just $12.99 a month and business plans starting at just $39.99 a month. This makes OVOPhone a very affordable alternative for business owners as well. Users can choose a new telephone number with a 787 area code or transfer their existing telephone numbers. All plans include free unlimited incoming calls and free unlimited OVOPhone to OVOPhone calls.

In addition to eliminating long distance charges to the U.S., OVOPhone gives its customers independence from their internet providers. For example, users can change their internet provider and not worry about their service being interrupted or dealing with long waits to transfer their phone numbers. If they move, they can simply unplug their OVOPhone at their old residence and plug it in their new residence. Furthermore, and unlike other providers, OVOPhone does not force customers into a contract, therefore users can cancel at any time without penalties.

"OVOPhone gives its users many advantages, like being able to take their OVOPhones with them and using the service from any country in the world via high-speed internet, or being able to activate up to 11 functions free of cost, for which they have to pay extra with their traditional phone service, like Voicemail, Call Waiting, Caller ID, and many others" -added García. Also, each user will have access to their own Control Panel on the web, where they will be able to manage their accounts and activate or deactivate their phone functions.

OVOPhone is a trademark of OVO Corporation, a company based in Puerto Rico with plans to expand to the U.S market. It is dedicated exclusively to providing internet telephony services, which allows it to provide their customers fast and personalized service.

OVOPhone will become available to Puerto Rico residents during the first weeks of May 2007. For more information, go to or call 1-888-OVO-VOICE (1-888-686-8642).
