Doral, FL, June 26, 2006 ï¿½ DigiLinea (www.DigiLinea.com), the leading Voice over IP (VoIP) service and infrastructure provider to the US Hispanic and Latin American markets, announced today another breakthrough VoIP product, the availability of DigiNumero which provides unlimited inbound calling from Latin America to any telephone in the US for just $25.65 per month. DigiNumero provides US Hispanic clients with a personal local telephone number from their home country in Latin America, a ï¿½DigiNumeroï¿½, that rings in on any cellular or fixed line phone in the US with no broadband necessary. The DigiNumero service is possible through the DigiLinea pan regional VoIP platform and allows US Hispanics to have their own individual telephone number from their home country so for the first time friends, family, and loved ones of US Hispanics in Latin America can call them as if they were still just across the street in their home country. The DigiNumero can be dialed from any PSTN telephone in the world and directed to any phone number and provides a savings of 85% over calling cards. The DigiNumero Unlimited Inbound rate applies not just to all US phones but to most fixed line phones worldwide.
ï¿½With DigiNumero we believe we have used the DigiLinea pan regional VoIP platform to create a new communications product segment that we believe will grow substantially in the future as this allows for the benefits of VoIP but is a product accessible to 100% of the US Hispanic market as no broadband is necessary just a fixed or cellular telephone line. This coupled with the fact that DigiNumero is 85% cheaper then calling cards we believe will have a profound impact on the US Hispanic communications landscapeï¿½, said Gregory Keough, CEO of DigiLinea.
ï¿½Over 44% of all outbound calls from the US terminate in Latin America with the majority of US Hispanics using calling cards. Calls are almost always originated from the US as calling is much more expensive from Latin America to the US and secondly the majority of the cash is generated by the immigrant communities here in the US as evidenced by the large remittance flows of money transfers to Latin America. However, you must ask yourself if the US Hispanic community were still in their home country and had a local telephone number would they not receive calls from their families daily? The answer obviously is yes; DigiNumero for the first time allows this to happen and provides the added benefit of huge savings over calling cardsï¿½, added Mr. Keough.
