Those calling from North America (Canada or the USA) should use Tel3Advantage. It is a prepaid calling plan (similar to a phone card) that can be used to make cheap long distance phone calls from any kind of telephone. It is has the lowest rates to South Africa from North America and is very convenient to use. It is easy to open an account and there are no fees or hidden charges, simply deposit as little as $10 and start making calls. Rates from North America to land-lines in South Africa are 3.1 cents per minute and those to mobile phones are 11.6 cents per minute. These are very good since they include all taxes and fees.
People who want to make cheap phone calls to South Africa from Canada, the USA or other locations should consider phone cards. These can be used to make calls from any kind of phone in over 130 countries. Typical rates on calls from the USA to South African land-lines using premium quality phone cards start at about 3.4 cents per-minute. Calls to mobile phones in South Africa start at about 8.9 cents per-minute. These are advertised rates, actual rates will be higher due to taxes and fees. Visit Phone Cards International for more information on a variety of international phone cards.
Another popular method of making international calls is a PC-to-Phone service like Skype. This is a popular service because users can make free PC-to-PC calls if both parties use Skype. The free service is limited because both parties need to have PC or WiFi access in order to complete free calls. Rates on PC-to-Phone calls using Skype are typically not as cheap as the rates on calls made using Phone Cards or Tel3Advantage. For example, using Skype pay-as-you-go service, calls from the USA to South African land-lines cost 6.8 cents per-minute and those on calls to mobile phones are 23.3 cents per-minute. These rates are before tax but they are already much higher than the other services mentioned above.
Those who don't normally make many international calls and only want a product to make a few calls during the World Cup should consider using phone cards. Premium phone cards offer quality, low cost, convenience and many can be purchased denominations of $5 or less. These are ideal for the occasional international caller.
