Article from BTNews 29 OCTOBER 2012

Phoning home

Ritesim.com, a UK-based company that supplies travellers with local pay-as-you-go sim cards, has identified the most expensive destinations for holiday-makers to contact home from, with the top five revealed as Uganda, India, USA, Thailand and China.
Self promoting comparisons are not usually noted by BTN but this one seems to indicate that serious money can be saved.

For example, calling a UK landline from China cost £1.65 per minute when using a market-leading phone company’s sim card, while Ritesim.com’s sim Chinese card cut this cost down to just £0.04 per minute.  Likewise India, reduced from £3.10 per minute, to £0.14 per minute.
While all three sim card competitors charged on receiving phone calls from the UK, with Ritesim.com incoming calls are accepted free of charge.  In other words you can leave your mobile on without the worry of a large bill.  A local number is provided which can be shared before departure.  They can be topped up abroad. www.ritesim.com
