Bangladesh Call Rates Slashed

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

Effective immediately we’ve slashed our rate for all calls to Bangladesh landlines and mobiles by up to 16%. For just 2.9p GBP / 3.9¢ USD / 3.5c EUR per minute we give you a direct digital connection to the Bangladesh telephone network — quality and reliability that cannot be beaten by any other provider.

Remember that at Localphone we’re up-front about our rates. We don’t hide the true cost of calling behind connection charges or monthly fees, and 2.9p / 3.9¢ / 3.5c per minute is all you’ll pay.

I am pleased to inform you that thanks to your continuing support we’ve been able to reduce our rate for all calls to Pakistan.

Effective immediately our new rate will be 6.9p / 8.9¢ / 7.6c per minute to both landlines and mobiles. Find out more on our cheap calls to Pakistan page.

As we grow we’ll continue to negotiate better rates and pass the savings on to our loyal customers. Don’t forget that you can also earn free calls to Pakistan by recommending Localphone to your friends and family.

Earning Free Calls is Now Even Easier

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

Since we introduced our “Recommend a Friend” promotion, more than one in four of our customers has successfully referred at least one other user. In fact, in March a third of all new users were recommended by our existing happy users!

If you weren’t aware, when you recommend Localphone to your friends and family you can receive 10% of any calling credit purchased in the first 90 days of their account being opened; credit you can use to call anywhere in the world for free! Find out more on our recommend page.

The good news is we’ve now made this even easier. When you log in to the site and visit our recommendation page (select “Earn Free Credit!” from the main menu), you’ll see you can now import all of your contacts from Gmail, Yahoo!, or Windows Live Hotmail.

For Gmail users you will enter your e-mail address and password and your contacts will be imported. Yahoo! and Hotmail users will be taken to the Yahoo/Hotmail site to give authorisation.

Once your contacts have been imported you can select the ones you want to recommend Localphone to, and then it’s just a click of a button to send out your invites.

I hope you enjoy the new system. Please take a moment to vote in our poll if there are any other services you’d like to import from (Facebook, RediffMail, etc.)
