Today, millions of people make calls every day, even though traditional technology becomes less important. Read our overview of alternatives!

What is a telephone call?

Back in the day, everyone had a landline and making a call was a bit of an event, requiring an understanding of how call charges worked (phoning a friend or relative in Australia would be a rare occurrence). Businesses routinely checked itemized bills and woe betide any employee who had used the company phone to make too many calls or to make long distance/international personal calls. Today almost everyone has a smartphone, many people no longer bother to have a landline at home and VOIP (voice over internet protocol) calls are fairly standard. So calling someone does not have to mean a 'telephone' call: it can mean using a smartphone, a tablet, or a computer to have a conversation - often including video, which has now become mainstream - with someone on the other side of the world and with no thought of outrageous charges. Even the phone bill at the end of a trip abroad has largely lost its ability to inspire dread, as roaming charges within the EU have been restricted and international roaming charges can be avoided by using some of the non-traditional calling options as listed below.
