Starting Feb. 1 Verizon Wireless subscribers can get unlimited VOIP calling from their home to anywhere in the U.S. or Canada using the Verizon Hub. The calling plan costs just $35 per month. The Hub, which will be available at all Verizon Wireless stores, will cost $199 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a two-year agreement. Cordless phones for use throughout the home are available for $79.99 each.
The Hub, which Verizon announced earlier this month, will offer connectivity through any broadband connection. The Hub integrates with Verizon Wireless services, meaning that customers can get access to VZ Navigator, Chaperone and VCast entertainment. Verizon Wireless subscribers who want the Hub will need to have a home broadband connection and a wireless router. Besides unlimited calling, customers will also get unlimited messaging to and from Verizon Wireless phones.
This Hub is the first product from Verizon that bridges the wireline and wireless network and is an attempt by the company to increase its offering to its wireless customers, particular those that live outside its wireline footprint.
