Nymgo Slashes Calling Rates to Nigeria for Remainder of the World Cup

Nymgo lowers price to five cents per minute

NEW YORK, NEW YORK and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - June 15, 2010) - Nymgo (www.nymgo.com), the VoIP provider with the lowest rates and best quality for calls from computers to anywhere in the world, today reduced the price of calls to mobile phones and landlines in Nigeria until the final whistle of the World Cup is blown on July 11, 2010.

To thank its growing Nigerian customer base for their loyalty—and in recognition of Nigerians' passion for sports—Nymgo reduced call prices from anywhere to mobiles and landlines in Nigeria to an industry-low 5 American cents a minute. By comparison, Skype, charges a whopping 25.4 cents to Nigerian mobiles.

"The cost of VoIP calls to mobiles and landlines in Nigeria was low before today's announcement," said Onsi. "Our prices have the potential to drop as low as 5 U.S. cents permanently in the future, as it is Nymgo's stated policy to reduce prices to destinations where traffic increases. Nigeria is one of those destinations. But however low our prices drop, our customers can rest assured that the quality of the service we provide will never be compromised." 

Nymgo, which is based in the United Kingdom and owned by Splendor Telecom, intends to cement its position as the world's No.1 low-cost VoIP service provider by providing significantly lower rates and higher quality calls than competitors like Skype and Vonage.

"When we launched Nymgo in December 2008, I vowed that we'd always offer the lowest everyday prices, great call quality and superior customer service," says Onsi. "Since then, we've hosted more than 200 million minutes of VoIP conversations and our software had been downloaded nearly two million times."

In keeping with their policy, Nymgo also announced that if traffic to China continues to increase at this momentous rate, they will reduce call rates to mobiles and landlines even further.

Customers Rely on Nymgo Because:

  1. Nymgo always adjusts its prices downwards when traffic to destinations increases.
  2. Nymgo has never increased prices to destinations and will not do so.
  3. Nymgo does not add connection or disconnection charges to its calling rates, unlike other VoIP service providers.
  4. Nymgo and parent company Splendor Telecom independently owned and therefore do not have to answer to the demands of shareholders or venture capitalists with regard to pricing structure. 
  5. Nymgo's straightforward, pay-as-you-go service allows customers to purchase minutes as they need them and never penalizes them for unused minutes. There are no contracts and no hidden charges. 
  6. Nymgo support is available 24/7. If a customer gets poor audio quality, Nymgo will test the line and refund up to two minutes of call charges if the problem was caused by their network.
