Telcos with unlimited talk & text to the UK


Many providers now offer unlimited international talk and text to the United Kingdom on select plans. These include Amaysim, Boost Mobile, Coles Mobile, Lebara, Optus, Telechoice, Telstra, Virgin Mobile, Vodafone, and Woolworths Mobile.

If you're on one of these telco, you'll want to double check whether or not your plan includes international calling before you dial. While some telcos offer international calls on every plan, some only include it on their higher price offerings. 

WhistleOut's picks 


Amaysim

All Amaysim "Unlimited" plans now include unlimited talk and text to the United Kingdom, regardless of how much you're paying. Amaysim's $25 Unlimited 2GB plan is one of the cheapest option for calling the UK, but if you need more data, Amaysim's pricier plans still have the same offer.
