Firstnumber.co.uk offers Brits an affordable way to keep in touch with friends and family in Thailand during Thai new year

A UK based cheap international call provider has pledged to help people living in Britain keep in touch with family members and friends in Thailand as the country begins its new year celebrations.

Www.Firstnumber.co.uk currently offers over 250 access codes that allow consumers to make cheap international calls at a heavily discounted rate; Thailand is just one of the countries serviced by the company.

Traditionally celebrated from the 13th – 15th of April, the Songkran festival now features week-long street parties and water fights.

Celebrations in the northern city of Chiang Mai run for most of the month and are extremely popular amongst travellers and tourists looking to immerse themselves in Thai culture as well as finding a rather unconventional way to cool down from the intense heat.

Firstnumber.co.uk spokesperson Andy Steele hopes the service – which allows callers to dial landlines and mobiles for just 1p a minute – http://www.firstnumber.co.uk/en/cheap-international-calls/cheap-calls-to/thailand/ – will allow individuals based in Britain to wish loved ones a happy new year.

“Songkran is a really exciting time of year to visit Thailand, not just for the great weather but for the party atmosphere that runs from north to south for most of April.

“Needless to say, Thailand is a particularly popular destination for tourists during April and it’s understandable that family and friends will want to keep in touch with loved ones during their travels or perhaps wish Thai residents a happy new year too.”

Firstnumber’s service is currently one of the cheapest on the market by offering more generously discounted calls than many of its competitors with calls to landlines and mobiles both priced at 1p a minute.

Firstnumber works by providing callers with a discount code with is placed at the start of the number they wish to call. The code then applies the discount to the call from the offset, allowing callers to save tens of pounds in comparison to a standard BT line.

Firstnumber.co.uk Aims To Help Small Businesses Recover From The Recession

Firstnumber.co.uk currently offers over 250 access codes that allow consumers and businesses to make cheap international calls at a heavily discounted rate.

Firstnumber.co.uk spokesperson Andy Steele hopes the service will allow small businesses to save money whilst recovering from the recession.

“The recession has been a tough time for everyone let alone smaller businesses and especially those that are only in their first few years of trading. Undoubtedly, business owners will be looking for ways to save money and in doing so can often overlook basics such as utilities.

Using an access code is not only simple to do but could easily slice hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds off your phone bill.”

Direct dial access codes work by placing a designated code in front of the number you wish to call.

The code then applies a discounted rate allowing users to call destinations such as Argentina, Canada, Thailand and Argentina for as little as 2 pence per minute.

Ways in which businesses could stand to save money couldn’t come at a better time.

Finance experts are predicting some 28,000 small to medium businesses will go bust during 2010 which follows a jump of 220per cent in the number of firms declaring bankruptcy the year before.

Although small businesses will be tightening their belts in some areas and scaling back in others, Andy Steele hopes that the flexibility of services such as Firstnumber.co.uk means telecoms remain affordable and supportive of the economic upturn.

“With direct dial access codes, users can call both mobiles and landlines. This means businesses aren’t pigeon holed into calling one or the other which is often the restriction when trying to save money.
