Who are 2Abroad?

2Abroad is an international telecommunications company that operates across Europe and the USA. We specialise in offering high quality, low cost international phone services.

The company was started in 2002 by Chris and Alistair, two students who were fed up of receiving large monthly phone bills.

It seemed ridiculous that normal calling costs from mobile phones and landlines were so prohibitive. The prospect of a huge monthly bill meant that we never used to be able to have a comfortable chat with friends abroad.

We approached a major UK telecoms carrier and convinced them to sponsor development of an international student telecoms service. It was hugely popular with students across the UK, and became the basis for our DialAbroad service.

DialAbroad enables you to make international calls at national rates. This means it will cost you the same to phone a friend in UK as it will to phone a friend overseas (sometimes less!). Alternatively, if you're on the move, you can make the best value international calls from your mobile phone.

There are no catches or hidden charges and no monthly bills. Just simple and straight forward low cost calls.

The international telecoms market is constantly evolving, with new technologies and ever lower rates (when we first launched, India was 10p/min, now it's 1p/min!) and we continue to innovate and launch new brands and services. One example is our revolutionary global SIM card service UK2Abroad - that allows you to travel abroad with one of our SIMs, keeping your regular UK number but receiving calls and using data at a fraction of the price.

We use this blog to keep our customers informed of our new products, rates and also to post about helpful tips, news and information that we think our wider user base will find useful.
