Netgear, a maker of network equipment and voice communications services, has announced its new netgear messaging service.
It’s a one-time, free, two-year subscription plan that will be available to existing customers.
The company says it plans to roll out a version of its existing voice service to its users, but the launch isn’t expected to be until 2018.
The one-year package includes unlimited voice and video calling on both mobile and fixed broadband plans.
For example, if you have two accounts, you can use the two free lines to make calls and text messages simultaneously, as long as they’re the same line number and type.
You can also use a free unlimited voice calling plan, which includes unlimited calling on your mobile number, but requires you to also subscribe to Verizon’s voice services package.
There are other features too, including a built-in microphone, a cloud-based messaging app, and voice-to-text calling features.
The company also offers free, unlimited cloud messaging for new customers.
It’s not clear when the service will be rolled out to the US and other countries, but it’s likely to be a short time before that.
If you’re a Verizon customer and would like to keep using the service, you should sign up for the subscription plan at that time.
Verizon is a major player in the telecoms space, with over 200 million customers in the United States alone.
In the last year, the carrier has rolled out the first-of-its-kind voice calling service in the U.S., a Skype-like video-calling option, and launched a free internet-based email service.
