XMission Launces Digital Phone Service over DSL
SALT LAKE CITY, UT — January 22, 2010 — XMission today released its new residential digital phone service, XMission Voice, to DSL customers in Utah.
"After an exhaustive test process, I am proud to offer Voice service to our DSL customers,” said XMission president and founder, Pete Ashdown."Voice over DSL is so good, I am using it for my own personal needs."
All Utah residents who qualify for 1.5 Megabit DSL or faster can bundle it with XMission Voice. XMission Voice starts at $30 per month, plus taxes and installation charges. Customers can keep their current telephone number, or XMission will assign them a new number.
“Our residential DSL customers have been asking XMission to provide them digital phone service either so they could cancel their CenturyLink land line or switch off Vonage,” said Chief Operations Officer, Grant Sperry.
Features include free nationwide long-distance (in the contiguous 48 states), voice mail, voice mail to email, voice mail for iPhone, call waiting, call forwarding, call blocking, 3-way calling, caller ID block, and emergency forwarding.
XMission Voice utilizes Voice over IP (VoIP) technology. In addition to cost savings when compared to traditional phone service, XMission Voice customers benefit from advanced networking Quality of Service (QoS) prioritization to ensure their phone calls sound better, according to Sperry.
XMission will remotely assist with the initial hardware setup and necessary configuration. Ashdown said customers should not see any interruption in their phone service. XMission Voice works with most residential telephones.
