Localphone is a cheap way to make international calls from you mobile,landline or computer from as low as 0.5¢ per minute. Localphone comes from England and is very popular since it came on the scene. Localphone have slashed the cost of international calling. Each contact gets their own local number - no contracts, no hidden charges, and no monthly fees.

It generally has seven basic services: Local numbers, Internet phone, Global SMS, Calling card, Dial online, Incoming numbers and Callback.


Localphone Ltd is the new business venture of British entrepreneur Paul Cusack.

During Paul’s time in his previous business—Ebuyer (UK) Limited—he travelled extensively, racking up huge telephone bills. During one of these trips he researched how he could reduce his phone bill and found the technology of Voice Over IP (VoIP). While the existing services that he found were adequate, he felt that the philosophies he had used in his previous business models could be used to create a better service, with a powerful, easy to use system, and extremely low pricing.

After many months of research, numerous courses, and with the help of a dedicated programming team, he has come up with a service that is everything he had hoped for. Localphone allows you, the customer, to make low cost calls from any location in the world—often for less than the price of a local phone call!

The Localphone Team are constantly working on new ideas and concepts that will enhance your communication while retaining the ease of use you have come to expect.
