Ooma intros $5 plan for its mobile calling app
Ooma Mobile on Wednesday introduced a new calling plan that gives subscribers 1,000 minutes of talk time for less than $5 per month. This plan is available only to those who downloaded the Ooma Mobile app for the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch that lets them call friends in the US and internationally. The calls are routed over the Internet, using the device's Wi-Fi or 3G connection, saving them from using plan minutes.
Like Skype, calls made to other Ooma users, mobile or otherwise, are free. Without a plan such as the one introduced today, calls to numbers other than Ooma's cost 1.9 cents per minute.
