Skype - ever heard of Internet search?
I can't believe the number of times I give out this information:
PCCW offer an IDD service called 0060 which can be used from a landline or mobile or any public phone. You just register your landline and/or mobile number with them. For the public phone you just get a calling card which will come with a PIN. The rate to landlines the UK and Australia is currently 17 cents a minute. Bear in mind that calling using your mobile to call will incur airtime.
HGC 0088 has a $38 unlimited IDD offer right now. How is the quality of their calls compared with HGC 0080, PCCW's service and the link above to Wharf's ec Telecom? I'm most interested in the call quality to China and North America.
one of, if not the, cheapest way to call anywhere in the world. Comp to Comp is free, comp to landline - well, its only ever cost me a eurocent per minute when i've been watching my balance - but i only call spain or the UK.
Depend how much your calling there i guess, and whether its business or personal.
SkypeOut is not cheaper than these discounted plans. The sound quality is quite decent on SkypeOut though, whereas I have no idea what ec Telecom's or HGC's quality is like.Originally Posted by Laughing_Monkey
Hey orrock or anyone else, stupid newbie question: what shops/places sell these? That is, assuming you don't just go to Sham Sui Po and find some dude on the street selling phonecards - or do you?Originally Posted by orrock
Hong Kong Broadband does a PC to landline or mobile package for HK$48 per month with unlimited free calls.
The person abroad registers with HKBN and they get to call landlines or mobiles in HK free via PC. Or you can phone their PC number from HK landline or mobile for free.
It's a halfway house between Skype and traditional calling, and the best package around if your friend/relative abroad is on the PC.

Have a look at this link.. I used it since it's introduced. HKD 38 a month for unlimited calling. Sometimes it's hard to get to the line, but it's a great price!
