I am looking for the best value calling rates to Australian mobiles from my home landline.

I realise there are packages out there to call Australia for a good price but I need a phone card option.

There are way too many out there, so thought I would ask you guys for your expertise:)

All I know is Yabba:

That's 30c/min

I know there are others out there - but have not investigated (never needed to use them)

bear in mind that a lot of calling cards advertise really low rates (1-5c) but for most people it works out waay more expensive because of flagfall fees, call setup charges, call disconnect charges, daily fees, and various other.

Just make sure when you buy whatever card you buy that you make sure you understand all the fees.

Send private message is 19c per minute to normal Australian mobiles, 19c connection fee for the call and is rounded to the nearest 5c at the end of the call :) the cheapest I could find out of a really quick google search
