Edison, NJ -- Vonage Holdings Corp., the leading provider of broadband phone service, today announced that its donation of free phone service to the United States military stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan has allowed our nation's soldiers to make over 200,000 phone calls, spending over two million minutes on the phone with loved ones back in the US. Vonage plans to continue this program throughout 2005.
"Vonage has noticed an increase in calls during the holiday season and is glad we have been able to give our troops the ability to call their families to say happy holidays and tell them how much they are missed and wish them a great New Year," stated Jeffrey A. Citron, chairman and CEO of Vonage Holdings Corp. "We recognize the sacrifices the men and women of the United States Armed Forces are making in Iraq and Afghanistan, and although we cannot do anything to get them back to their families any faster, we are doing our best to use our service to help make the loneliness of their deployment a little more bearable."
