World Discount Telecommunications Targets Chicago for Launch of ALLVOI Internet Phone Service
Deep Discount VoIP Service Helps Consumers Save Big Amidst Rising Prices, Economic Turmoil
CHICAGO, IL, November 11, 2008 —World Discount Telecommunications (WDT), a provider of discount telecommunications services for residential and business customers nationwide, today announced Chicago as the launch market for ALLVOI, the company’s new Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone service.
Powered by WDT, ALLVOI (http://www.allvoi.com) is a low-cost, high quality, feature-rich Internet phone service available now for consumers with broadband Internet access. Introductory ALLVOI calling plans start as low as $3.99 per month and include popular features not provided free with traditional analog phones such as enhanced voice mail, call forwarding, call waiting, conference calling, free in-network calling, and on-the-go calling.
WDT kicked off the launch of its new ALLVOI service in Chicago this month with high-profile ads running on Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) buses and trains and in CTA rail stations, as well as numerous ALLVOI ads across select Chicago area billboards and broadcast media.
The ALLVOI advertising campaign theme – “Cheaper Than” – underscores ALLVOI’s low cost and potential for saving consumers hundreds of dollars per year on their phone bills, a message WDT believes will resonate well with cost-conscious Chicagoans concerned by today’s economic turmoil and rising prices.
Said Roman Talis, CEO for WDT, “Chicagoans are some of the most discerning, cost-conscious consumers in the nation. They recognize a great deal when they see one. ALLVOI is a great deal – the lowest cost, highest quality phone service available. Period. We are taking this message to Main Street with ads on Chicago Transit Authority buses and trains. We want Chicago to know that ALLVOI provides immediate relief for average consumers who want to lower their monthly phone bill. Government may have its eye on protecting Wall Street. With ALLVOI, WDT is looking out for Main Street.”
WDT’s proven 12-year track record providing deeply discounted long distance and international direct-dial phone service to Chicago’s large Polish, Russian, Ukrainian, and Romanian communities and WDT’s Niles, IL-based operations and customer support center also were factors in the company’s decision to focus its ALLVOI marketing efforts on the Chicago area, according to Talis.
“The WDT brand is well known and well respected in the Chicago market. WDT currently has nearly 90,000 customers in this market,” said Talis. “Our customer support representatives in our Niles call center are world class. We are doing everything in our power to ensure the ALLVOI rollout moves forward as smoothly as possible, and that customers have the very best possible experience with ALLVOI. A market-by-market advertising campaign starting right here in Chicago makes sense. It’s simply good business.”
Another big market differentiator for ALLVOI that WDT believes will catch the attention of cost-conscious consumers is its deeply discounted international calling plans and low-cost international calling rates.
“ALLVOI customers will benefit greatly from WDT’s strong heritage providing discounted international calls and from WDT’s dedicated international network,” said Talis. “ALLVOI offers low-cost calls to all international destinations, and offers international calling plans with 65 free destinations such as Europe, China, Russia, Israel, Latin America, and Asia among others.”
