Telephone users in Viet Nam now can register for a fixed telephone number in the US and use it as a follow-me number by the One-Connection service system.
With this new service, customers can use the US registered telephone number to make calls, fax and e-mail from wherever they are in the world.
EIS Inc officially opened the one-connection system in the California State city of Los Angeles on May 19, 2004.
The service system, which is operated under the One-Connection Network Franchise model, is managed by One Connection USA Inc, a joint venture between One-Connection Pte Ltd (an affiliate of EIS in Singapore) and the Voicenet Communications Inc of the US.
Customers all over the world can apply for the US registered telephone numbers through the One-Connection Network by logging into their website, www.one-connection.com. Payments are made by credit card.
In Viet Nam, besides registering on the internet, customers can sign subscription contracts or buy prepaid cards at OCI’s agents.
Currently, customers can only buy telephone numbers that are registered in areas of Los Angeles, New York and San Jose. At the end of this year customers can choose from telephone numbers in 20 main US states.
The HCM City-based EIS Inc is awaiting the go ahead from the Ministry of Post and Telematic to set up a similar system of selling Vietnamese numbers over the world.
