In a continuing effort to refine our portfolio to meet the needs of our customers and IBOs, ACN is discontinuing the sale of landline Local & Long Distance phone services in the U.S. and Canada. This includes Residential Local & Long Distance, Stand Alone Long Distance, Business Advantage, and BusinessTalk services. As of December 13, 2016, the services will no longer be available for sale. Existing customers on these services will continue to be supported.
This strategic change will allow ACN and our IBOs to focus on our state-of-the-art Digital Phone services, which use Voice over IP (VoIP) technology to allow customers to make local and long distance calls over an Internet connection. ACN will continue to offer residential and business Digital Phone services, including DigitalTalk Express and DigitalTalk Express Phone Adapter. These changes will be implemented on ACN Compass, Myacn.com, and your ACN Direct Storefront on December 13.
By the end of this year, we will also simplify the business Digital Phone service offering and will be introducing new, competitive pricing early next year. Please stay tuned to your Back Office for additional details.
