SunRocket Lowers Global VoIP Pricing

by Bruce Stewart

In yet another blow across Vonage's bow, SunRocket announced an interesting new global calling plan this week that includes unlimited calls to major cities in 41 countries for about the same amount as Vonage's standard monthly U.S. calling plan. For a flat fee of $299 a year (just under $25 a month) SunRocket customers can now have unlimited calling within 41 different countries using the new SunSpots calling plan, which includes coverage of most of Europe, and Far East destinations like China, Japan and South Korea.

This lowers the bar even more in the ongoing VoIP price wars and will surely be a big cost-saver for some people who do a lot of international calling to areas covered by the SunSpots plan, though the annual payment scheme will likely not appeal to everyone. Russell Shaw thinks that could be a major stumbling point, and his point that the people that are most concerned with shaving money off of their phone bills are probably much less likely to be able to pay for their phone service in annual chunks is a good one.
