If you have family or friends overseas, you'll know how expensive it can be to keep in touch with someone halfway across the world. Thankfully, plenty of broadband providers have cottoned on to the need for cheap global communication and now offer international call packs alongside their home phone and broadband bundles.

What these packs get you can vary dramatically from provider to provider, though, which is why we've broken down their inclusions below. If you're looking for a provider that offers a deal on calls to a specific country, just press CTRL + F and type the country into your browser's search box.
