Australia has over 600,000 New Zealanders living here and the numbers are growing. However home is where the heart is and with the Christmas and New Year celebrations for 2013/14 under month away, many of our Kiwi friends will be planning on calling family back home over these special days of the year.
One thing that has always puzzled me is why our prepaid international call rates to New Zealand are never as low as some other countries given the number of New Zealanders living here and the level of business trade between the two nations. You will struggle to find call rates at 1c or 2c per minute as you do for countries such as mainland China and India. To help our friendly visitors, I have reviewed the prepaid call rates around the market to find the cheapest call rates that can be taken advantage of this year.

gotalk have launched their new Aussie $30 and $40 recharge offers. The new plans offer unlimited calls and TXT (including 1300/1800 calls) and 200MB and 1GB of data respectively.
