    UK landline to Thai mobile

    Roughly how much is it per minute to call a Bangkok mobile from a UK landline?

    Did it myself just the other week, 1p a minute BT or 2p a minute cable/virgin:

    Cheap calls - www.justcall.co.uk - home

    don't know how it's got so cheap but can't complain.

    Scampy

    VOIP discount.

    VoipDiscount | Free Calls and SMS

    Sign up - 12 euros for 120 days

    then you can either call from your pc

    or you can call a local access number and be routed through to a number in Thailand

    Missus uses it a lot. 5 hours or so per week call time.

    Cheaper than phoning a mobile in the UK

    ^ Lot more expensive than VOIP discount NickA.

    Get yourself a nice SIP enabled router and you don't have to stay stuck to a pc to use it in the house.

    OR get that Orange 15 quid a month deal for unlimited landline calls 100 texts and 500 minutes and you can call through that.

    12 euros for 120 days = 4 months = ~20 weeks x 5 hours = 100 hours for 12 euros

    Bargain.

    Dunno, our bill is never more than 5 quid and the wife is on the phone all the time, so I'm not really bothered. Easy to use too.
