Primus’s Lingo And D-Link To Offer VoIP

Available at Fry’s Electronics initially, and rolling out to other major retailers nationwide, the new Lingo VoIP telephone service is bundled with the new D-Link Broadband Phone Service VoIP Router (DVG-1402S/L), providing both a high-quality Broadband VoIP telephone adapter as well as fully functioning home router and firewall.

“Having been a major player in the VoIP space since 2000, we have built a global VoIP network that delivers high-quality voice service at an extremely competitive price for consumers and small business,” said John Melick, co-president of Primus’s U.S. operations. “Partnering with a like-minded networking giant like D-Link will help us to continually evolve our services to meet the demands of our growing base of Lingo customers.”

The Primus and D-Link relationship enables consumers and small business to easily set up a high-quality Internet telephone service via their broadband connection, at significantly reduced rates in comparison to traditional telephone service. The companies said that this collaboration offers retailers a groundbreaking opportunity to increase sales and expand into a new category, capitalizing on Primus’s leadership in broadband telephony and D-Link’s retail strength in home and broadband networking solutions.
