- What is Alliance Callback?
Alliance Callback is a call re-origination company and premier international
discount telecommunications provider, offering connections of superior clarity
and reliability at a discount of up to 90% in comparison to the rates of local
telephone companies, calling card services and hotels.
- What is Call Re-Origination?
Call re-origination is a method through which callers anywhere in the world are able to access a U.S.
telephone line and rates far lower than those available in most foreign countries.
Callers place a 'trigger call' to a computer in the US and hang up after the first ring, thereby
avoiding a charge for the international call. The computer immediately returns the call, providing
a US telephone line. The caller can then place a call to anywhere in the world.
- How low are Alliance Callback rates?
Alliance Callback offers the lowest rates available anywhere for most of your
international connections. Our customers save between 50% and 90% on their international
phone bills by using Alliance Callback instead of local providers, hotels, pay phones, and US
calling card services.
- How do I use Alliance Callback?
You are given a personal 'trigger number' that is used to initiate a call. Simply dial the number,
let it ring once, and hang up, you are not charged for the incomplete call. The Alliance Callback
computer instantly returns your call, providing you with a US telephone line for placing multiple calls
at low callback rates.
