How much does it cost to call abroad from a landline

Almost all fixed telephone operators operating on city soil provide customers with "all-inclusive" rates for voice and Internet, which, against a blocked monthly fee, offer free calls to home numbers and national mobile phones, often with no connection fee, and unlimited Internet browsing.

The aforementioned rates, however, do not always include voice traffic to international destinations, through which to be able call abroad from landline. In fact, these last calls have a “special” rate, based on the country to which the call is made and, above all, on the conditions of the existing contract. For example, some offers of TIM they have a cost that starts from 23,18 cents / min. with no connection fee, while Vodafone starts at a cost of 19 cents / min. + 19 cent. connection set-up. WINDTREEinstead, it charges a cost starting at 23,18 cents / min. us 23 cent. connection fee e Fastweb part from 5 cents/min. with no connection fee.



As I explained earlier, the amount to be incurred to make a call abroad also varies according to the country to which it is called: in this situation, operators usually divide the countries into international charging zones (Zone 1, Zone 2, Zone 3 and so on), which have different call costs.

The countries belonging to each zone may vary from operator to operator, therefore, below, I provide you with the links relating to the charging zones defined by the major fixed telephone operators: TIM, Vodafone, WINDTRE and Fastweb.

In any case, I invite you to carefully consult the terms of your telephone contract, in which you will find, with absolute certainty, detailed information on the costs applied for international calls.



Area codes for calling abroad from landlines

Having clarified the price issue, the time has come to get to the heart of this guide and to explain, in practice, how to call abroad from a landline. The steps to take are not so different from those you would take to call a national network number: all you have to do is dial, using the numeric keypad of the device, the telephone number belonging to the foreign country, preceded, however, by his own country code.

International prefixes always start with 00 and are followed by a series of digits, which identify the country to which the numbering belongs: it must always be placed before the telephone number to be called, otherwise the call will not be successful. If, for example, you need to initiate a phone call to the US number 713-22-33, you have to dial the number on the telephone numeric keypad 001-713-22-33 (001 is, in fact, the international prefix of the United States of America).

Below, you can find the complete list of international prefixes currently in use, in alphabetical order.
