Localphone December 2011 voucher and reduced rate to Pakistan


Hi everyone,
Localphone have announced the following voucher offer for December 2011.

"We're giving 10% bonus credit on 1st orders until 31st December 2011. This is valid for new customers on their 1st top up. The code to use at the checkout is DECBONUS."

They have also temporarily reduced their rate to Pakistan. See http://www.ourfavouritecompanies.com/OffPeak/phone-rates/Pakistan.shtml and http://www.ourfavouritecompanies.com/OffPeak/phone-rates/Pakistanmobile.shtml for our current list of rates to Pakistan.


The new rate from Localphone has also considerably improved the best rate in our database for VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) calls to Pakistan landlines: you can call from your computer over the internet, instead of using your landline or mobile.

See http://www.ourfavouritecompanies.com/VOIP/phone-rates/Pakistan.shtml for our current list of VoIP rates to Pakistan landlines.

Note the following further information from Localphone on this rate reduction:

"Massive Pakistan Rate Reductions
As of 12pm GMT today [December 2nd 2011] we've reduced our call rates to Pakistan by up to 50%! Rates are reduced until the end of the year [2011]. Rates will increase again on 3 January 2012 12pm GMT."

So, unfortunately, the rate decrease is only temporary. You should make good use of it while it lasts!

    Planet Talk's 18.4p per minute access number 0903-5982106 is also very popular at the moment. This is because several of the destinations available are very expensive to reach by other means.

    Planet Talk 1p per minute access number 0844-8652106


    A number of destinations are available through our Planet Talk 1p per minute access number 0844-8652106
    It is a sign of the level of competition in this market that for most of these destinations, 1p per minute is not the cheapest rate in our database! However 1p per minute does make a good fallback rate if 0.5p per minute rates are busy or otherwise unavailable.
