IRWINDALE, Calif., Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Charter customers in California are finding it easier and more affordable than ever to keep in contact with family and friends south of the border.
Charter is now including unlimited calling to Mexico landlines and up to 250 minutes of calling to Mexico cell phones with the Charter Phone Unlimited plan in California when customers choose the Triple Play PaqueTV Plus package.
Triple Play PaqueTV Plus bundles Charter Phone, TV and Internet service with the popular Latino View Spanish-language programming package."Adding Unlimited Calling to Mexico is another way that we are increasing the value of our Phone service," said Carl Leuschner, Charter's vice president of Internet and Phone Products. "Most competitors charge incrementally for Mexico calling, with costs close to $40 per month. Charter is offering that same value at substantial savings to our California customers." That means Mexican-Americans in California can keep up with events back home – from Tijuana to Cancun and Matamoros to Manzanillo – without the fear of a costly telephone bill at the end of the month or the difficulties associated with telephone calling cards. "Dialing the number on the card, a 10-digit pin, and then the number you are calling – it's very inconvenient," said Anthony Leyva, a senior customer sales and service center representative for Charter in Long Beach. Like many Southern California families, the Leyvas used to rely on calling cards for making calls to their relatives in Mexico. But that changed when they signed up for the Charter Phone Unlimited plan. "If you add the Latino View package, you get this on top of it," Leyva explained. "You automatically get those calls included in your plan. It helps a lot."
