Three updates pay as you go calling abroad costs

Mobile phone network Three has improved its International calling on prepay tariffs, by offering cheaper prices for dialling phone numbers outside of the UK.

Prepay customers can now call 25 countries for as little as 2p per minute, with that number directly relating to Poland and Ireland.

Three's pay as you go customers need to dial a prefix, before dialling the actual phone number in order to obtain these new low-cost call rates.

Calling Australian, Canadian, Chinese, French, German, Indian, Italian, Spanish and American landlines now only costs 3p per minute with Three - with Canadian, Chinese, Indian and America mobile phones numbers match that same cost too.

The code needing to be entered before dialling the actual number has been set up by Three, where the number activates the lower costing tariff and isn't related to the International dialling code of that number. The code can also simply be added to the phone number beforehand, within that person's address book entry.

Three's International prefix dialling scheme has actually been running since April this year, only the mobile phone network has now added 13 more countries with better all-around prices - where just topping up the phone with credit provides access to the new discounts.
