Rogers Communications’ subscribers soon will be able to use their wireless numbers as their “go to” single numbers, a service Rogers says “is unprecedented and the first of its kind in Canada, enabling Rogers to further stand out in the competitive Canadian telecom landscape.”

The carrier is using fixed/mobile convergence (FMC) provider CounterPath Corporation’s portfolio of carrier- and enterprise-grade solutions to make its new “Rogers One Number” service available.

Using One Number, eligible Rogers wireless customers now have the following features:

>> One inbox and contact list: create and manage contact lists that are synched automatically between a computer and a mobile phone.

>> Talk and send texts to Canadian numbers from a computer, without deducting from the wireless plan:  Customers can begin their conversation on their mobile phones and then transfer the call to their computers when they arrive home.

>> Use a computer to call any Canadian number, from anywhere for free with an existing Rogers wireless plan: Subscribers also can video chat with other Rogers One Number users.

Notes Donovan Jones, president and CEO at CounterPath, “As Canada’s largest wireless provider, Rogers continues to demonstrate innovation by delivering the kind of single-number voice, video and messaging reachability that consumers want.”
