Cheap international calls. It’s the little things that really make you smile. One of those little things is being able to talk to the people you love on a regular basis.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not a phone guy and I actually love not being in a position where I get calls all the time, but sometimes, it’s pretty terrific to have those long chats with the people I care about. I miss that. Well, let’s instead say I was missing that.
Suddenly I find that even with my super slow internet connection, I can dial up my friends and not worry about it costing an arm and a leg. 1.8 cents a minute is a price I can afford. I think that’s less than I was paying for my cellphone in the U.S.
I fully recommend Skype. I just got off a call that was clear, without delay, and it seemed like we were in the same town, not 10,000 miles apart. This thing is perfect for travellers, vagabonds, hobos, and even business people. You can dial from your cellphone or use the internet interface and a headset. Pretty cool.
$5 gets you plenty of time to catch up. From Morocco, I’ve tried using Skype, Maroc Telecom, and Wana with bills that made me cringe. Not to mention the delays, failed connections, and more. Tonight my connection was dirt slow and yet still, the call was crystal clear. I’m not sure how the hell they do that. Maybe it’s magic.
Anyway…check em out and include them in your Vagobonding Tool Kit. They also offer prepaid calling cards.
Here are some things I like:
# Fantastic rates on calls to 100s of countries.
# The convenience of PIN-less dialing.
# Faster connections with Speed Dial.
# Re-charge any time, anywhere.
# Proven network guarantees clear, reliable calls.
# No hidden charges or fees—the rate you see is the rate you pay.
You heard it here first. Tell your folks that Vago says Hi!
