8×8 Inc., a provider of Packet8 broadband VoIP and videophone services, has made available international virtual direct inbound dial (DID) numbers with area codes from nine European countries.
Packet8 residential and business subscribers can use the numbers to create a “virtual presence” for themselves in England, France, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Italy, Ireland and Denmark. By adding a virtual number, subscribers can reach people in one of those locations with a local call instead of an international one. Businesses, in particular, can benefit from using an international virtual number to open virtual sales offices overseas, the company said.
Packet8 subscribers can add a virtual number to their service for $9.99 per month with a one-time $9.99 activation fee. More information about Packet8 international DIDs can be found at www.packet8.net/about/features.asp.
