TWC Expands Global Penny Phone Plan

Time Warner Cable has added five destinations to its Global Penny Phone Plan’s geographic calling area -- Bangladesh, Ecuador, Israel, Pakistan and South Korea.

With the expansion, customers on the plan can access penny-per-minute rates to 55 countries, to both landline and mobile numbers, as well as “competitive international calling rates” to more than 200 countries.

TWC Phone customers can add Global Penny Phone Plan for an additional $2.95 per month, then pay a penny for each minute of calling to countries that are in the plan. Customers must have a TWC Phone plan before subscribing to international plans.

“We’re excited to add five new destinations to TWC’s Global Penny Phone Plan calling area for our Phone customers,” said Jeff Lindsay, Time Warner Cable’s group VP and GM of Home Phone, in a statement. “Customers can pay as they go without worrying about overage charges and have a consistent, clear and reliable phone connection.”

TWC said it has also made enhancements to its phone product to help customers reach others on a global basis. Its  $10 per month TWC Nationwide Unlimited Phone Plan customers, for example, now lets customers call anywhere in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Mexico, China, Hong Kong and India.
