How to use Rebtel from a landline

For many people, the use of a landline is something of the past.  Lack of functionality, coupled with soaring prices in comparison to mobile/cell phone operators meant that the market was tipped upside down. Landline operators fought back though, with some great packages on offer and usage figures have seen a shift from the downward trend.  The problem is that keeping in touch with loved ones abroad remains expensive. The large costs incurred from long distance cabels are transferred to the end user and as a result many people are using internet service like Rebtel. The great thing here is that it’s not just an internet service… you can benefit from exactly the same rates by using your landline telephone.

Compared to other call providers, Rebtel provides whopping savings of up to 90%.  Here’s what to do to access the same great service on your home landline as you would get from the Rebtel App.

Step One

Register here, by entering your phone number and choosing a pin. Have a read through the Rebtel terms of agreement (see how there are no hidden costs like connection fees and rounding), tick the box and click the ‘Sign up now’ button.
