Do you remember hearing that? I do. Communications have changed so much in the past 4 decades. I remember when everybody had a rotary phone. I remember when North Carolina only had one area code. I remember when my town only had one trunk code: When I called to get my phone hooked up after we moved back, they tried to give me the new one. I said “Can I please have 123, like all my friends and relations?” And the lady gave me a number with that code instead. Okay, so we all know I am old, but let’s get to the point of this post.
That point is Pingo. Pingo is a prepaid calling card service that allows users to save up to 90% within the US, and also internationally. And not just from here to there. I’m talking there to here, or there to there. Here’s a sample of Canada calling card rates.
Pingo phone cards are a service of iBasis, a public company (NASDAQ: IBAS) and one of the largest carriers of international phone calls in the world. Pingo customers take advantage of the same high quality international service and price advantage iBasis has been providing to leading phone companies like AT&T, MCI, and Sprint on a wholesale basis for almost 10 years. In fact, iBasis provides our service to just about 1 in 10 off all International calls made.
You can receive up to 4 hours of free long distance calls, just for signing up for Pingo. It’s the last calling card you’ll ever need.(tm)
