Free domestic calling program gets extension

Google has announced that its Google Voice service will continue to offer free domestic calls within the US and Canada through the end of 2012. The search giant originally committed to free US and Canadian domestic calling through the end of 2011, leaving users to wonder if the popular service would transition to a paid subscription or another business model at the end of the year.

"This is our way of helping you connect with friends and family across the country," Google Voice group product manager Vincent Paquet said in a blog post.

The company still maintains the same international calling rates, available inbound to the US and Canada from other countries for $0.01 per minute. European rates average $0.10 per minute, while users can call India for $0.02 per minute.

It remains unclear if Google will eventually charge for the service within the US and Canada.
