Devices are either provided by BroadVoice, or customers may use their own equipment on discounted rate plans. Calls can be made to any telephone number in the US or internationally.
BroadVoice, a subsidiary of Convergent Networks, was founded in December 2003 and was based in the Billerica, Massachusetts area as of 2008. Convergent was purchased by Eastern Photonics, a subsidiary of Global NAPs, a CLEC.
