How does Avanti reduce mobile phone bills?

Avanti is an advanced service automatically accessed from your mobile phone to give you cheaper calls. You simply dial the number you wish to call as you do now and Avanti will automatically connect you.

The built in intelligence of Avanti determines whether the call would be cheaper via Avanti and if so will automatically route it.

Otherwise it remains with your existing mobile service. There is no need to change your mobile network or number, or dial additional digits to access the service.

What kinds of Savings are available?

Avanti can save you money on a variety of different calls but there are three main areas where the service can make significant differences:

Calls to Other mobile networks: These kinds of calls can be very expensive, sometimes as much as ten times more than calls to subscribers on your own network or to land line calls. Avanti offers savings of up to 50% depending upon the network and tariff currently in use.

International Calls: Calls from the United Kingdom to other countries have fallen in price dramatically in recent years, unless you are making them from a mobile phone, in which case they continue to be expensive even when using International call saver packages provided by the mobile networks. Routing these calls via Avanti gives you greatly reduced International rates not available to you from your mobile provider.
