Hi, we call overseas with some of the internatinal calling cards at 4c/min plus other surcharges on top.

Wondering if there was a similar thing calling to NZ toll calls landlines and NZ mobile phones?  Not  calling a computer.  So this is like calling shop's landline numbers and their mobile phone numbers such as plumbers and electricians etc.


I understand Skype can be quite cheap but they are not computer literate. 
Don't want to pay $5/month to access cheap rates cos they don't call often enough. 


What's available?



Cheers.

Why not just move to a Telecom calling plan that offers cheaper calling rates?

You'd probably want to look at Anytime, Totalhome lite, or Totalhome.

All of these offer better value, particularly with the capped calling offers.

Mobile:
Totalhome - $2 for 2 hours for Telecom mobiles, $0.37 per minute for non telecom mobiles.
Totalhome lite and Anytime $2.50 for 2 hours for Telecom mobiles, $0.47 per minute for non telecom mobiles.

National calls:
Totalhome - $0 for 2 hours.
Totalhome Lite - $2.50 for 2 hours
Anytime - $2.50 for 2 hours.

Hi Ray

If you would like to PM your landline number I can have a look into your rates and advise of the best plan to suit your calling
