International price changes

former giff-staffer

Hi all, 

 

As a New Year starts, some of our prices for international calls will be changingMore and more members are making international calls and we want to keep offering good rates.  

 

Like we mentioned in July, we try to not change the price too often, but as the cost of connecting international calls change, we need to update our offers too. So, on the 29th January, there will be prices changes in some international destinations. 

 

You can find the list of all the price changes below. To ensure that all members are informed, we will be sending a text (linking to this blog post) to anyone who has made a call in the last month to an international country listed below.

Not all bad news though. The two countries on the list that I call from time to time are reductions!

I don't think you will remain competitive with calls to Uganda costing 95% more, you have got me thinking moving to another network.

Almost 3 times increase for the country I call into (not often).

 

All you did with this is to make me (and my gf and all my mates) use Skype/hangouts/... even more. I don't think I'll ever use my mobile to call home again.

 

So good job GiffGaff! Smiley Frustrated
