I’m wondering what the options are. I’ve got some calls I need to make whilst I’m out here in the middle of nowhere in the Maldives. There’s a brilliant mobile network here, Dhi Mobile, I think it is, that covers 100% of all resorts. Nice.
However that’s a good few quid a minute at least on my standard network choices — Vodafone, o2 and T-Mobile.
My first look-up was Jajah… but they don’t seem to have support for the Maldives.
I’m going to take a look at RebTel. Trouble is, since I’m roaming, there is going to be a cost for using the phone whether I’m calling or receiving. And I don’t have a localised sim for the Maldives. Yet.
The other option I’m considering: Truphone. Ah hah. Yes. There’s free wifi here… Oh… and Skype, too.
Do you have any suggestions on a service I could use from the hotel’s landline to make calls back to the UK?
