Pricing – How much it costs to make International Calls
When we said Global Call lets you make international calls at a truly affordable rate, we meant it! One of the notable reasons for this affordability is lack of connection fee in Global Call. While other services, including Skype, do charge a connection fee (in case of Skype, it can range from 1.7 cents per connection to 9 cents), Global Call has cut it off and hence made international calls quite easy. Thus, even though Global Call may seem to be expensive than Skype or other services in first glance, you will understand the real affordability when you make call.
In addition, Global Call WILL NOT CHARGE any call that lasts less than 6 seconds, because the service does not want you to pay if you are not satisfied with quality of call. Of course, we think the pricing section of Global Call is quite impressive. You can check the rates here.
