International Calls to Africa

How to Make Cheap International Calls to Africa with 011Now

It is priceless to be able to call your beloved friends and family whenever you desire, don’t you think? But, if you are living in the US or Canada, there are many international borders involved between you and your dear ones living on the African continent. Hence, the minutes (and dollars) are adding up pretty quickly when making an international phone call to Africa, not to mention that the taxes on inbound calls to the African continent are maybe the biggest in the world, and they tend to keep on rising. Using 011Now, you will be able to make cheap international calls to Africa without having to break the bank.

Africa calling map

There are over one million African immigrants residing in the US at the moment, and many of them are working hard, pursuing careers here, that will allow their overseas families to live comfortably back home. Being able to contact his loved ones is a crucial part of an immigrant life, but most of the African countries have international calling rates (and especially on mobile networks) almost double vs the global average.

So, combining those high international rates with your monthly phone bills, not to mention the hidden fees, you can see how calling Africa may become very problematic and a serious financial burden.

Now the good news: If you need to call Africa on regular basis, look no further. With 011Now you will benefit from the lowest rates for international calls available on the market.

To start from the beginning, you must first understand who we are and what can we do for you:

011Now is a calling card company that works as an intermediary between you, the customer, and your local phone company. Instead of dialing an international number from an African country directly from your phone, you can use 011Now’s services and call our local access number from your area code.

011Now will pick it up from there, making the international call via your phone service provider for a very small rate. You will be billed just for calling 011Now’s local access number and save a lot of money in the process.
