BROOKLYN, NY, JANUARY 14, 2009: EOT announced today that it will start offering effective January 21st, 2009 a new calling plan for fixed line telephone service that offer consumers and businesses new and exciting choices in Basic Telephone Service.
The New Service that is being offered under the program name "Get More, Pay Less" offers several new options for consumers that can provide savings of over 60%. This new service will enable Customers to rethink changing to a VoIP Service and staying with the traditional telephone line service that they have always known and used. The service in Manhattan is being offered for only $13.75. This compares to the Verizon price of $13.85. However, there is more to this offer than just the 10¢ price difference. Customers no longer have to worry about paying for pricy features like Call Waiting, Caller ID with Name, Three Way Calling, *69, Busy Redial and more. If a residential Customer has Call Waiting and Caller ID with Name, Verizon will charge about $29.10 per month. With EOT, the subscriber would pay only $13.75. This is a savings of over 50% with only these two features; imagine if you wanted them all. The most popular features and more are now standard with "Get More Pay Less" Service, and that is not all. Regional Toll and State-to-State calls are only $0.019 cents per minute. Subscribers receive as a bonus, 60 free minutes every month to one of 33 popular international destinations. The charge the subscriber pays for each minute above the bonus is only $0.019 cents to land line destinations. Calls to China, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Thailand can be made to both fixed and mobile destinations for the same $0.019 per minute.
Offering these low rates to small users is unprecedented. Domestic toll and International rates comparable to these, using traditional phone lines, are usually reserved for businesses that pay monthly access charges of $400 to $500 per month.
Other options include the "My Favorite Nation Plan" that allows unlimited calling to one of thirty three destinations around the world for as little as $42.95 per month including line charges and all the enhanced features. Customers can choose the U.S. and Canada, or one of thirty three destinations.
