Lingo - The Talk of Broadband

Lingo is a subsidiary Primus Telecommunications, one of the world’s largest international telecom providers, offering Internet, wireless, voice and data services, including VOIP service to 150 countries.

Headquartered in McLean, Virginia, Lingo claims to have some of the lowest rate  service plans around.

If you do lots of international calling to Asia or Europe, then consider Lingo.

To make long distance or overseas calls, Lingo lets you have up to three phone numbers from your own area code, from another state or province, or from another country. When friends or family from that country call you, they will only be charged for a local call.

The cost of adding these Lingo international phone numbers to your plan is $5 per month for Canada numbers and $10 per month for any number in the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South Korea, Spain, and United Kingdom.
