Xplornet to Offer More Choice with New Home Phone Service

Press release: Xplornet Communications Inc., Canada’s leader in rural broadband services, is taking the next step to give rural Canadians more choice and value for telecommunications services than ever before with a new, feature-rich home phone service.

Xplornet is very pleased to announce that its value-packed home phone service is now available across rural Canada. From coast to coast to coast, Xplornet customers can now experience home phone service at a significantly lower cost compared to traditional landline service.

For only $19.99 per month, customers can get great value with Xplornet Home Phone which includes basic and premium services that typically require additional cost from other providers. These extras include:

  • 10+ calling features included at no extra charge
  • Free unlimited province-wide calling
  • North American long distance plans for only $5
  • Competitive international rates to over 200 locations
  • Phone number portability
  • No contract

“Our customers have been asking us to take this next step. Too many rural Canadians have to rely on expensive landlines. They want a more affordable home phone service alternative from a provider they already know and trust,” said Chris Johnston, Executive Vice President, Marketing at Xplornet. “Rural Canadians who subscribe to Xplornet can now easily switch phone service, keep their current number, conveniently see their services on only one bill, and start saving.”

With the introduction of Xplornet Home Phone service, Xplornet continues to move forward on closing the urban/rural telecommunications divide by investing in high quality services to provide more value for Canadians who live outside of towns and cities.

Xplornet’s new home phone service is now available across rural Canada to Xplornet subscribers.

How to Value SaaS Companies

By Catalyst Research Team

Software-as-a-service (SaaS) companies have had a great run over the course of the current business cycle.
