Selectel offers International Calling now
Verizon MVNO Selectel Wireless has added international calling to its prepaid offerings. Their dealers were recently informed about this change but their website doesn’t reflect it yet. In order to make international calls, Selectel offers International Calling Cards for $10 and $20 per month. The balance on the cards expires after 30 days and rates included with two cards vary. Rates per country on the pricier $20 card are lower and vice versa, on the $10 card international rates per country are more expensive. Also, for some countries only landline calls are available while for others landline and mobile calls can be made.
For example, calling Mexico landline numbers on $20 card is 1.9¢ and on $10 card 2.2¢, while calling Mexico mobiles on $20 card is 3.8¢ and on $10 card 4.5¢. For Canada, only landline calls are available, $20 card rate is 1¢ while on $10 card is 1.1¢. Check the full list of countries supported.
Selectel Wireless does not offer direct international dialing. Instead, customers need to dial access code 540-322-2466 first and then the wanted international number.
