Call Bangladesh for Even Less

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

Thanks to your continued support we’re pleased to announce even cheaper international calls to Bangladesh with Localphone.

Effective immediately calls to Bangladesh will be just 2.6p GBP / 3.9¢ USD / 3c EUR per minute to all landlines and mobiles. Don’t forget that with Localphone that low rate is giving you a direct digital connection to your friends and family for crystal clear call quality and unbeatable reliability.

Thanks to our recently launched Dial Online service your loved ones in Bangladesh can now sign up for accounts of their own and call you at our low rates.

Don’t forget to recommend Localphone to them via our website and you can earn 10% of their call credit whenever they top up.

We hope you enjoy the new low rates and look forward to announcing even more exciting new developments in the near future.

A Great New Rate for Calls to Pakistan

Monday, July 19th, 2010

We contacted customers on Friday to announce a special weekend rate to Pakistan, and were very pleased to see such an enthusiastic uptake.

You may recall we were recently forced to increase our rates due to higher costs imposed by the Pakistani Government. As promised, we have worked hard with our suppliers to try to reduce our rates again as soon as possible, and I’m pleased to announce our new rate to call Pakistan landlines and mobiles is USD $0.085 / GBP £0.059 / EUR €0.067 per minute, effective immediately.

While this is not yet back to the previous levels it does represent a significant reduction, and follows through on our commitment to always pass our savings on to you. We will continue to strive to be the best value for your international calls, and thank you for your ongoing support.

New Rate to Pakistan

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

We have unfortunately been forced to increase our call rate to Pakistan in response to actions taken by the Pakistani Government. Effective from 00:00 GMT on 1st July our rate to Pakistan will be $0.109 / £0.076 / €0.089 per minute to both landlines and mobiles.

Due to a rise in the cost of terminating international calls in Pakistan, our suppliers have had to increase the rate they charge us, and we are forced to do the same. It is important to note that this situation is entirely unavoidable and Localphone will in fact make less profit as our margin is now even tighter.

While we always hate to increase our rates, even at these new prices we still offer considerable savings on your international calls with no compromise on quality.

We expect that all international call providers will announce similar rate increases in the coming days. As has happened in the past with Pakistan, we expect the wholesale market will quickly compete to offer lower rates and we’ll pass these savings straight on to you.
