Sprint Canada Launches Broadband VoIP

Sprint Canada, a subsidiary of Call-Net Enterprises, launched a nationwide VoIP service aimed at households and small/home offices. Sprint Canada Internet Phone Service (IPS), which rides over any DSL or cable modem connection, is supported on the company's own back office systems.

The service is available as a standalone product and includes all standard home phone features such as operator services, 911, 411, and 711. Call waiting, call display and voice mail are also available. IPS is also available as part of bundled package with local home phone service and Fido wireless service. Introductory pricing starts at $19.95 per month

  • In May 2004, Call-Net Enterprises, a Canadian integrated communications provider known primarily by its wholly-owned subsidiary Sprint Canada, entered into an agreement with Bell Canada to acquire certain assets of 360networks. This deal includes significant portions of 360networks' business customer base and specific network facilities in Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada. Call-Net will enter into a two-year transitional services agreement with Bell to provide technical and operational services to the newly acquired customer base and in exchange be paid approximately 70 per cent of the total retail revenue.
