Calls to Africa from other International Locations

Tel3 is currently only available in the USA and Canada.   If you live in another location and want a similar product to make cheap calls to Africa and other locations than we suggest you use the Continental Phone Card. Continental has features that are similar to Tel3Advantage and it can be used from over 60 countries.  Their call quality is very good and the rates are also low with minimal fees. Fast World is another phone card that has high quality and can be used to make calls from nearly every country.  

International Long Distance Calls from Africa

Now make low cost calls from Africa using Tel3 Network.  Using Tel3 Network calls can now be made from Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa.

Making low cost international calls from most of the countries in Africa is not easy.  Many phone cards and other prepaid products do not offer service from Africa.  One exception is the AT&T Phone Card, it can be used from most African countries but the rates are relatively high.  In our opinion, international callback is the best option for making cheap international calls from most African countries. Traditional callback can be used from some countries but other countries block traditional callback. To get around traditional callback blocking we suggest using Web Call.  It is cheap, easy to use and cannot be blocked without a lot of effort. Using web call, callback calls are initiated by sending a specially formatted e-mail to a computer that connects the call through a third country.  Calls can be made using any kind of phone that can receive calls from overseas. This is the best and lowest cost option for making international calls from most locations in Africa.
