Peace Corps volunteers save 80% of international long distance phone call expense by using
international callback service to call family and friend in USA but enjoying US telecom
technology and connection. Visit BestCallback's website at
and find the rate to call US from Guatemala is only 33¢. When you go to BestCallback, look
for the "Peace Corps Service" section to see some sample rates and then dig for the program
features and benefits.
