HOLMDEL, N.J., Jan 22, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Vonage subscribers with "home away from home" needs or who have friends and family around the world, have a new, more affordable way to stay in touch thanks to Vonage's new V- Access. This service is currently available in the United States, Canada, France, Italy, Mexico, Spain, and the UK.
V-Access provides an access number to make calls to any Vonage phone number (or an 800-number) without paying long distance or international fees.

With a couple of clicks in the "Find an Access Number" box, anyone can obtain an available access number that will enable them to avoid long distance and international calling charges.
