NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Time Warner Cable (TWC) continues to redefine home phone, announcing today that it is expanding TWC Phone Unlimited to include unlimited calling to 29 European countries. TWC customers with the phone plan can already make unlimited calls to anywhere in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, China, India, Hong Kong, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and now can call most of Europe, all for one low monthly price. This means that Time Warner Cable phone customers can make unlimited calls to 34 countries with 3.6 billion people – half the world’s population – at any time, and talk as long as they want, without having to worry about extra charges.
Combined with the features of Time Warner Cable’s recently launched Phone2Go app, which allows customers to access their TWC Phone service on the go with an iOS or Android mobile phone or tablet over a WiFi or cellular data connection, TWC has “fundamentally reinvented home phone,” said Jeff Lindsay, General Manager for Phone at TWC.
“Time Warner Cable has led the way on phone innovations such as unlimited domestic calling, caller ID on TV, helping our customers eliminate unwanted calls and giving our customers more flexibility with our Phone2Go app,’’ said Lindsay. “We’re now fully mobile, so you can call from almost any device inside or outside the home, and we include unlimited calling to much of the world’s population. We’ve transformed into a phone service with no boundaries, but with the unsurpassed quality, convenience and peace of mind customers expect from a home phone line.”
The expansion of the plan to Europe includes all 28 countries that comprise the European Union (EU), such as Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom, plus Norway.
“Many of our customers have friends and loved ones overseas,” said Lindsay. “We’ve seen incredible response to the addition of Mexico, Hong Kong, China and India into our Unlimited calling plan, and we’re certain that the expansion to Europe will be similarly well received. It gives us great joy to bring families and friends together and to play a part in making the world a little smaller.”
Customers who subscribe to the TWC Phone Unlimited calling plan enjoy the following benefits:
- For one low monthly price, make unlimited calls to mobile and landline phones at any time to anywhere in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Mexico, China, Hong Kong and India, and now including unlimited calling to all countries in the EU and Norway. No overage charges, no calling cards and pins, and no varying rates.
- On your mobile device, use a WiFi or cellular data connection to receive incoming home phone calls while on the go by downloading the free Phone2Go app in the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. Or use your home phone number to place calls to any country included in the plan from virtually anywhere. So, if you’re traveling overseas, you can easily stay connected to friends and family back home; and if you have loved ones abroad, you can call them no matter where you are. All you need is a WiFi or cellular data connection and a qualifying Apple iOS or Android device.
- As always, popular phone features are included, such as Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, Caller ID on TV, 3-Way Calling and Privacy Features to block unwanted calls.
In addition to the international destinations included at no extra cost in the TWC Phone Unlimited calling plan, TWC offers one of the most competitive international phone plans to the rest of the world with its Global Penny Phone Plan. For $2.95 more per month, customers pay just a penny a minute for phone calls to more than 50 countries included in the plan, and highly competitive rates to anywhere else.
