It's never been so easy to make cheap overseas calls. In the past, making an international call used to be prohibitively expensive. These days, making overseas calls couldn't easier. Thanks to VoIP technology, calling overseas is easy, flexible and unbelievably affordable.
To call overseas using VoIP, all you need is a broadband connection. Vonage uses your existing telephone handset and your existing broadband connection to make calls over the Internet rather than through a traditional telephone line. You simply use our Vonage Box™ to connect your phone to your modem or router, and you're ready to make cheap overseas calls.
With Vonage you sign up to a call plan of your choice. There are numerous call plans to choose from, ranging from those that include just a few countries to up to 42 different countries all around the world. You pay a set, affordable, flat monthly fee. This entitles you to make unlimited¹ calls to landlines and some mobiles in the countries listed in your call plan.
If you want to make overseas telephone calls to a country that is not listed within your call plan, you will of course be charged. But because it is so affordable to use the Internet to make overseas phone calls, Internet telephone service providers such as Vonage can pass on huge savings: our international rates are refreshingly competitive, as you can see here and you can change your call plan whenever you want simply by logging onto your online account.
Gone are the days when you had to buy an overseas calling card and preload it with cash in order to make overseas calls. Gone too the days when you have to remember to dial some code or another number in front of the proper telephone number in order to enjoy some small discount. And gone are the days when every second on the phone meant a more painful telephone bill. Use the Internet to make your overseas phone calls and calling someone abroad is no different to calling them locally. You can relax and talk for as long as you like!
Today, if you have an Internet phone, you simply pick up your phone and dial the number as usual. You don't need to be at your computer; in fact your computer doesn't even need to be switched on! As long as you've got broadband, you can use Vonage to make cheap overseas phone calls. And you don't need the other person to sign up to the same service. In fact, the person on the other end of the line need never know that you're using the Internet to call overseas. As far as they're concerned you are just making overseas calls as normal.
It's simple, see how.
