Pingo Service Update: Local Access Service is Restored!

Dear Valued Pingo Customers,

As mentioned previously, we experienced connectivity issues using Local Access Numbers due to service disruptions caused by Hurricane Sandy. Our dedicated employees worked diligently to restore Local Access Number service. Our Toll Free service is still available at no additional cost, however regular charges for this service will resume on Friday, November 9, 2012.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience. To fully investigate this matter, we worked diligently with providers that support over 60k Pingo Local Access Numbers.

We truly appreciate your business and patience to allow us to restore the service.

Thanks for your continued support,

- The Pingo Team

Project Bread’s Strike Out Hunger Bowl-a-thon

iBasis Project Bread Bowl-a-Thon scheduled for tomorrow evening has bin postponed since the bowling alley will be closed due to Hurricane Sandy in Boston.

Project Bread Bowl-a-Thon is part of our companies “Corporate Social Responsibility” to help a great cause.

Project Bread’s Strike Out Hunger Bowl-a-thon

Sponsored by iBasis

Today, thousands of people in Massachusetts experience hunger because they cannot afford adequate food. Local families are struggling even more this year to put food on the table because of a recent rise in the cost of everyday food and the high cost of living in the state.

In fact, many families and individuals who never thought they’d need to ask for help are now having to decide between paying rent, getting medical care, or buying food. Money raised through Strike Out Hunger will help our neighbors get through the tough winter months that lie ahead.

Register today as a team captain, recruit teammates from your friends, family and co-workers, raise $650 or more per lane as a team and join us on October 30th for a good time while making a real difference.

Don’t have a team to join? Join Team Project Bread and have fun and meet others who are also passionate about ending hunger in Massachusetts!”

Looking at some old tweets from @TelphoneCard you can see some of the money we have helped raise for this local cause.

8:11 AM – 16 Nov 11

Pingo / iBasis Project Bread Bowl-A-Thon last night raised about $27,000 which was more then last year of about $22,000 for @WalkForHunger

9:15 AM – 3 Jan 11

Pingo Awarded the 2012 Editor’s Choice Award from Pingo Review for the 2012 Editor’s Choice Award

While Pingo has earned several awards over the last five years. Such as earning a testimonial in 2011 from a major “consumer review magazine” that legally, we can’t mention the name. We are extremely honored to receive this Editorial choice award for the second year in a row from A leading phone card review and comparison site.

John Kenney founder of announced “”Pingo wins our 2012 Editor’s Choice Award for best international calling card. Based on our in-depth comparisons of leading vendors, we believe that Pingo delivers the best value to consumers for international calls. Pingo stands out for it’s high call quality, low rates, simple pricing, and excellent features.”

Pingo Testimonial Review

Pingo Review Testimonial from
“ is our ‘Editor’s Choice’ for best all around international calling card. They’ve earned the top award because of their low rates, clean pricing, simple rate plan, and strong customer support, among other factors.

The Pingo card has a comprehensive rate plan with consistently low rates to destinations worldwide. Their rates are low not just from their home country, but from virtually any country anywhere.

Pingo cards also have extremely ‘clean’ pricing – meaning they have far fewer extra fees and surcharges compared to other cards. In fact, Pingo won our recent ‘clean’ card analysis that compared fees from 9 companies and 30 different calling cards.

Another special feature of Pingo cards is the wide range of dialing and usage options they offer. The options include toll-free and local access numbers in 40+ countries, a mobile dialing app called EZ Dial that works from most smartphones, a PC dialing app called Softphone that works for almost any country in the world, and a family plan option that lets you share the card with family or friends anywhere.

Another major reason we chose Pingo is because they are an ‘integrated provider’ – meaning that they not only sell cards, but they also deliver the voice minutes themselves. For us, this is a major advantage. In Pingo’s case, not only are they ‘integrated’, but they are one of a very few calling card companies that are part of a Tier 1 global Telecom carrier.

Pingo’s parent company is iBasis, a company that operates one of the largest global VoIP networks in the world. Their network carries billions of voice minutes a month on a wholesale basis for many large clients, including other voice carriers. This high-performance network is the same one that carries all Pingo calling card minutes. That’s a big plus!

We could go on, but hopefully you get the idea: Pingo is an excellent company.”

Pingo Review for Why to Buy?

Here are the main reasons you should buy a Pingo calling card:

* Our top pick for best all around calling card
* Delivers calls on its own network (an ‘integrated provider’)
* Consistently low per minute rates to destinations worldwide
* Single rate plan covers all locations
* Simple, clean pricing (no hidden fees)
* Local and toll-free access numbers in 35+ countries
* Flexible dialing options: EZ Dial mobile app, Softphone
* Family plan offers multiple accounts on same card
* Strong customer service
