Cheaper International Calls to Nigeria

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

As part of our ongoing commitment to reducing the cost of international calls I’m please to announce that we’ve been able to discount our rates to Nigeria by up to a whopping 20%!

As of yesterday our new rate to Nigeria is just 6.9p GBP / 9.5¢ USD / 7.6c EUR per minute to both landlines and mobiles.

You can expect to see the same great call quality despite this reduction, as the price drop reflects the growing popularity of our calls to Nigeria. As we continue to grow we’ll keep re-negotiating our rates and passing the savings on to you, so don’t forget to recommend Localphone to your friends, family, and colleagues—you can even earn free call credit when they top up!

Thank you for your continued support and loyalty. With your help we’ll keep driving down the cost of calling Nigeria and the world.

Best wishes,
Paul Cusack, CEO.

Even Cheaper Calls to Bangladesh

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

Hot on the heels of our recent rate drop to Bangladesh I’m pleased to announce even further reductions in the cost of calling.

The response to our announcement on the 1st October was so overwhelmingly positive we’ve already been able to return to our suppliers to negotiate a further decrease, and we’re passing the savings straight on to you!

You can now call Bangladesh for just 2.25p GBP / 3.15¢ USD / 2.5c EUR per minute to all landlines and mobiles. Don’t forget that for this low rate you’re getting a direct digital connection to your friends and family, giving call quality and reliability that simply can’t be beaten.

As always, the more calls we handle the stronger our negotiating position so please continue to recommend Localphone to your friends—you even earn free call credit when they start to use the service.

Thank you again for your continued support and loyalty.

Best wishes,
Paul Cusack, CEO.
