    I am in Alabama in the US. My business requires I be in touch with a factory in Italy. I must do this by means of calls from US landlines, call forwarded to landlines in Italy. Outside of Vonage & Skype, can anyone tell me the cheapest company and calling plan that you have seen that will allow me to keep calling costs low? Thank you


    I believe plans from Skype are the cheapest you can get. They have a calling plan for calling Italy landlines at around $8/month for unlimited calling. They do have a Fair usage policy for these unlimited plans, but still it’s a good deal.

    Another VoIP company that comes to mind is 8×8. They have more expensive plans, but they claim to offer better quality and I can tell you that they have been in business for many years:

    Another option would be to use a regular calling service. Using Skype or any VoIP service requires a broadband Internet connection; if the connection goes down the phone service goes down. If you sign up for a regular service you can place calls using your current phone line. There are many such services providing low cost calling to international destinations. For example is a popular provider. Calls are made by dialing a local access number so being able to place free local calls is important.

    Let me know if you have any further questions.


    Thanks for the fast response.
    I’ll investigate these options you’ve suggested. Hopefully I’ll be able to go ahead with one of them.

Heads-up: some information on these forums could be outdated - countries change their numbering plans periodically. We recommend using our top menu to double check the correct instructions for dialing to a specific country.
