With the advance of technology, we have better means of communication today.  In the past, making long distance and international calls was once considered a luxury.  Remember the days when you made a call to foreign countries and you had to count every minutes because of the high international calling rates? These days are long gone now.  The introduction of VoIP service has made long distance and international calls so much easier and affordable that you can now chat with friends, relatives, families, business partners, customers for hours without worrying about the phone bill.

To make international calls with VoIP service, all you need is your computer with broadband connection and a headset! If both parties have installed free VoIP software, you are literally make long distance and international calls for free using the computers. However, if you want to make an international call using your regular phone without the computer, or call a mobile or landline telephone number in foreign countries, you can subscribe to VoIP residential service or VoIP small office service and pay a very low international calling rate. 

Some VoIP providers also provide free minutes of international call per month. Not only you can make free local calls, you can also call a number of international cities free until you use up the free included minutes.  After then, calls to these international destinations will be billed at your plan’s additional minutes’ rate.

The following table compares the international calling rates of VoIPo residential VoIP plan, Phone.com virtual office plan and AT&T landline service.  You can see just how much VoIP service can help you save on international calls compared to landline phone service.
