Calling Cards: Calling the Future Ahead!

By: Henry Kruz

Are you tired of going through elaborate contracts to talk to your friends and family overseas? Do you need immediate credit to call a specific country for a short period of time without paying enormous rentals? All of your problems can simply be solved if you consider purchases credit through a Calling card. Simply put, a calling card is communication credit card used by consumers to get telephony services.

These calling cards have a pre-paid system, in which you pay for some minutes or a certain value of currency to get access to telephony service immediately. You can either go for international calling cards which enable you to call almost any country in the world from any phone you can get your hands on.

However, region specific calling cards might be a better options as they provide the cheapest deals possible in the market. For example, if you buy a calling card meant exclusively for the Caribbean, you might end up saving upto 40% on the call charges!

Now, the reason that these calling cards come at such cheap prices is easy enough to understand. Card Providers purchase call credits in bulk from the major telecommunication companies - often with huge discounts. In turn, these companies pass a significant amount of these discounts to their end consumers as well.

Most of the UK calling card providers adhere to this policy and reap handsome benefits. Besides, UK's multicultural society provides many avenues for calling card companies to pitch their products to a wide array of population with contacts all over the globe. Thus the immigrant minorities in UK are helping to develop the telecommunication business even more.

The best benefit of a calling card is that you know exactly how much are you spending and where. This feature may seem similar to pay-as-you-go mobile phones, but provides an added advantage of being able to offer credits as low as ?5!!

Calling cards can be a significant factor in the further growth of the increasingly saturated UK telephony market. Now, free calling cards and free minutes are increasingly being offered to lure customers and make them a fan of the convenience that this technology offers. If this sector turns out to be the biggest telephony business opportunity in UK in the years to come, I would not be surprised.
