CallSouth Take On Telco Giants

CallSouth Take On Telco Giants

South Island based telecommunications company, CallSouth, is taking on the market giants with the launch of a full suite of landline services.

The Oamaru based company, which has been providing toll call and internet products to customers around the country for the past five years, now offers line rental and other line services traditionally dominated by the major telecommunications companies.

Chief executive Peter Roborgh says the launch represents an exciting move towards CallSouth securing a significant portion of the residential landline market and giving people more choice for their home phone services.

"We've launched this service as a result of demand from our existing toll call and internet customers who see benefits in a smaller more customer focused company meeting all their communications needs."

Mr Roborgh says CallSouth's products have so far been extremely well received, especially in the provincial areas.

"We recognise the importance of providing great service to provincial New Zealand and CallSouth has already developed a strong presence throughout the country."

"Our ability to provide the full range of line services – and save customers money in the process – greatly enhances our product offering and is a huge incentive for consumers to choose CallSouth over other telephone line companies," he says.

CallSouth line service charges are based around the principal 'the more you talk, the more you'll save on line rental' and are highly competitive when compared to other telephone line companies, according to Mr Roborgh.

Call South's line services include line rental, answer-phone, call-holding, fax switching, and caller-id.

100% Kiwi owned and run, CallSouth was set up in October 2000 to offer a choice of better value tolls and internet related services to New Zealanders.

CallSouth is also a corporate with a conscience. One per cent of each customer's toll charges are donated to local activities by a charity chosen by each customer, either IHC, St John, Heart Foundation or Surf Lifesaving.
