WorldLine is a telecommunications company that has been around since 2003. Worldline is an offshoot to its parent company: Fibrenetics, which is based in Cambridge, ON. Worldline provides VoIP services, long distance solutions as well as internet services. Worldline offers some of the most competitive pricing going around at least in terms of internet access. Worldline offers there services across Canada excluding the three territories: Yukon, Nunavut and the North West Territory. Long distance calling is something that Worldline also has received praise for and it now time to review the long distance services that Worldline has to offer to see how they hold up against the competition.
Worldline offers a long distance plan that is targeted for Canada for only $3.95 per month. That basically means you can make unlimited calls throughout Canada for a price that is less than your average grocery items. This pricing however is not the strong aspect of Wordline long distance services – their true strength lies with the flexibility of the three plans that they offer. You can use the Canada wide plan, the world plan which allows you to dial across 50 plus countries for only $14.95, or you can choose to go with a pay per usage option. Providing these options should be something each long distance provider should follow. Adding the last option of letting users pay per usage is extremely great considering that the customer will be in control of how much he or she chooses to spend. The versatility of Worldline is something we definitely hope to see in other VoIP long distance providers.
The question that remains is whether or not the calling rates to individual countries is economically feasible with the pay per usage plan. PhonePower is a well-known and prominent long distance provider that offers great international calling rates. PhonePower allows customers to dial Pakistan for 3.3 cents per minute while WorldLine allows its customers to dial Pakistan for 7.7 cents per minute. However this difference is made up for in the world plan considering PhonePower charges $24.95 per month for their world plan.
In terms of long distance dialing you can’t really go wrong with Worldline. They offer a variety of plans for you to choose from and it all depends on how much your actual usage is. For heavy users the world plan Worldline offers is the perfect combination of pricing and service quality. For light to average users the pay per minute plan also has much to offer.
