Locus goes on Safari with GEO Africa

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, NJ, July 12, 2005 - Headquartered in Englewood Cliffs, NJ, Locus Telecommunications, an established, leading provider of prepaid services and one of the nation’s largest prepaid long distance calling card suppliers, proudly announces the national launch of its newest card, GEO Africa. Following a successful trial in select markets, Locus is now offering this card nationwide through its network of 50,000 retail points. GEO Africa is considered to be one of the best selling and highest quality calling cards for the African calling card segment.

According to JH Choi, Vice President of Calling Card Sales at Locus, “Prior to GEO Africa, Locus was not a competitor in this market segment. Based on extensive market research and in-depth interviews with our distribution partners, Locus created a targeted long distance calling card that incorporates the strength, reliability and quality that our family of GEO Telecom cards have come to be known for.“

GEO Africa has been increasingly successful since its launch, showing steady growth in network traffic. Choi adds, “To build on the success of this card, and to cater to the growing number of recent US immigrants from other parts of the world, Locus is now working on launching “GEO Europe”, “GEO Asia” and “GEO Middle East.”
