Rogers Launches VoIP Service in Canada

Rogers Communications joined the growing cable VoIP parade on Friday, launching its new IP telephony service in the greater Toronto area. Known as Rogers Home Phone, the service offers cable subscribers local and long-distance dialing and other standard phone features at the same prices charged by Sprint Canada. Rogers customers can knock up to $6 off their monthly phone bills if they take other MSO services, such as video, high-speed Internet access and wireless telephony. The plan bundles start as low as $25.46 (Canadian) a month for local service and one calling feature. Subscribers then pay extra for long distance calls. Canada's largest MSO made the move after completing its previously announced $330 million purchase of Call-Net Enterprises Inc., which marketed its services under the Sprint Canada brand. Rogers said it intends to roll out the VoIP service to its other cable territories over the coming months.
