Overseas Calls for Cheap,Hey World, Can You Hear Me Now?
Whether you make just one international long distance call a month or numerous calls, it pays to compare international calling plans to find the best overseas phone rate for the country you are calling.
Always check dial around rates because in many instances a dial around number will give you the cheapest international long distance from the USA.
The plans I have listed on CheapTelephoneBills offer some of the lowest per minute rates when calling from the U.S. to another country. There are also international calling plans that target certain cities to give you the best phone rate for just that specific city. Yet even within these calling plans there can be a few cents difference in some cases. As always, read the fine print for every plan to know exactly what you are getting.

Don’t assume that a plan with a low rate within the U.S. will also have a cheap international phone rate. Many people believe that just because a calling plan has a great low rate for long distance calls within the U.S., this same plan will have a low overseas phone rate. Although this can be true, it isn’t always true.
If you need to use a separate dial around number to receive the lowest international phone rate, do it. If you make calls to a few different countries, check to see if you would be better served by using one calling plan for calls to one country, then a different dial around number for calls to another country. In many cases, taking the time to do this can save you a lot of money on your international long distance phone service.
Always check what the Universal Service Fund (USF) fee is: It is becoming more and more common for companies to charge a USF fee for state-to-state and overseas calls (the USF fee does not apply to long distance calls within your state). The average fee is about 9 percent, but many companies have a much higher USF fee.
As always, read the fine print.
Dial Around Numbers Key to Cheap International Phone Rate
Know if your call to another country has a minimum minute per call charge. One of the best ways to get a cheap international phone rate is by using a dial around number.
Some company plans have a 10- or 20-minute minimum charge per call, so a one-minute call could be pretty expensive in the long run. I will use a hypothetical situation as a
