“We are thrilled to offer our North America-based Intermedia Unite users the opportunity to place free calls to more people around the world through our expanded free international calling zone,” said Mark Sher, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing at Intermedia. “At a time when it seems everything is getting more expensive and businesses are spending more, Intermedia is committed to providing more value for our customers.
