IHUG's new text to voice service is going global!



24 September 2002

IHUG's new text to voice service - T2V - is going global!

Now you can send a 'text to voice' message to friends and family overseas. Another bonus - now your mates can send them to you as well!

"This huge expansion will make communication to family & friends overseas more affordable than ever," says Karli Fountain, IHUG's T2V Brand Manager.

"The T2V service is great for a quick chat and it's ideal if you want to have a bit of fun or deliver a quick message at a low cost," she says.

"It will cost the same to send a T2V to an international destination as it does to send one throughout New Zealand. If you're sending a message to the USA or Canada, there's only one rate of $0.20 regardless whether it's a landline or mobile number."

A total of 32 international destinations will be able to use the T2V service (check for more details).

As well as extending the reach of T2V, IHUG has also updated the T2V website. New features include a new T2V phone book providing customers with a quick & easy reference for frequently called numbers. (Refer too for further details.)
