“This is a great opportunity to throw away your old phone and start taking advantage of the incredible savings and call quality netTALK’s DUO product line offers,” said Cedric Guillory, netTALK’s Senior Director of Marketing. “Of course it also makes for the perfect holiday gift. Everyone wants to be liberated from high monthly phone bills without sacrificing quality. Moreover, any DUO device is simple to use as it just plugs directly into your router, computer or additionally via Wi-Fi with our DUO WiFi model.”

Mr. Guillory states this holiday offer applies to all DUO purchases made from all Canadian retail locations and online retail channels. The only restriction is that each device must be registered by Dec. 31, 2012 using promo code: INTL2012

“You can purchase the netTALK DUO WiFi for the incredibly low price of 74.95 $ CA and just 59.95 $ CA for the original netTALK DUO - the revolutionary, easy-to-use VoIP device that consumers everywhere count on for unbeatable reliability, call quality and an industry best host of free features too numerous to mention,” added Guillory. “That price also includes one-year of free calling throughout Canada and the United States and each additional year is only 39.95 $ CA plus tax. Just compare that to your current monthly phone bill to see the enormous amount of savings.”

He continues: “There is no better solution to the high cost of international calling other than calling DUO to DUO, which is always free. This is particularly attractive to members of the military who are stationed overseas or friends and loved ones living abroad.
