I'm sure it is something to do with fixed line vs wireless/mobile, as termination pricing differs from if you were calling from a fixed line to having it through a cell tower. I'm interested to know as well
A mobile call would consist of the following charges:
1. "Markup" by vodafone for profit 2. Cost for "mobile-vodafone cell tower and equipment" 3. Termination charge...
Let's start with #2. With Callplus's Superbuzz Card, you can call other countries using vodafone mobile for around 2cents/min off peak, 6cents peak. Hence, we can deduce that this cost should really be no more than 5cents/min. Otherwise, both CardCall and Vodafone would keep making a loss with this arrangement!
Next, let's consider #3. For a vodafone-vodafone call, there is no termination charge. For a vodafone-landline call, there is also no termination charge. For a vodafone-other mobile call, if this is the same as a WorldxChange/Xnet VFX-Mobile call, this should be no more than 30cents/min.
Hence, in summary, the minimum charges Vodafone can charge, minus the markup:
