Hughes Network Systems has introduced a new voice over Internet protocol service as part of company efforts to expand its global offerings.
HughesNet Voice, which works to forward calls to multiple phones, uses new telephony and voicemail features intended to help customers save long distance call costs, the company said June 17.
Mike Cook, senior vice president at Hughes Network Systems, said the company leveraged its previous public network VoIP services to deliver the new voice offering worldwide.
Hughes VoIP has served more than 30, 000 customers in Mexico, 10, 000 Telefonica subscribers in Spain and 5, 000 Telkom users in South Africa, Hughes said.
Hughes provides HughesNet Voice users in North America with voice traffic bandwidth that helps to eliminate data interference.
