Phoning in England
isn't too different from anywhere else. Most red phone boxes
have been replaced by newer modern looking glass ones, and
there are more competitors for phone services these days.
Most phone boxes take phone cards as well as coins. Phone
cards can be purchased from most convenience shops &
newsagents, and come in many denominations from 2 to 20
It is also quite
cheap to use Phone Centres, which are cheap ways to phone
overseas. Even cheaper is to buy specialty phone cards,
available in many convenience shops, where you can call
overseas for half the price that British Telecom offers.
You can use these cards at pay phones, or your home phone.
These cards are available from 5 to 20 amounts, and a
recorded voice advises you of time left when you use them.

card you can buy is Studios92 phone card, saving up
to 80% compared to Bt pay phone rates. The cheapest rates:
USA:0.05 per minute & Australia 0.5 per minute, Europe

And guess what? you get to keep the card after you finish
the cards at Studios.

up your computer to access the internet.
