Ultra Mobile, has added 1000 free minutes of international calling to selected countries on all its plans, which start at $19/month. Free calling is supported to mobile phones and landlines in Canada, China/Hong Kong, Singapore and to landlines only in Mexico and the United Kingdom.
Although the $19 Plan includes 1000 no extra charge international minutes, international calls do count against the plan's 250 total minute limit. After 250 minutes, calls, including international ones, cost 2¢/minute.
Even before this change, Ultra was one of the best values for users who call or text internationally. Ultra's other international pluses include:
- International direct dialing
- Unlimited free international texts to 190 countries with all plans
- Low international voice rates. The per minute price for calls to mobile phones in India is 1¢, Mexico - 3¢, UK - 5¢ and Philippines 13¢
- All plans come with an international call credit ranging from $1.25 to $20
- "Call Me Free", a no extra charge service that provides local access numbers in 40 countries that non-US family members and friends can use to call Ultra customers for the price of a local call.
