Phoning home is no longer an expensive, tiresome business with the choice of using a public phone or paying extortionate hotel rates. Now, there myriad ways of staying in touch, and they are getting cheaper all the time. All over the world, the liberalization of telecommunications services has opened markets up to competition, which means falling phone charges and a greater choice of services from a host of service providers. (...) Hotels got wise to being bypassed and blocked access to cut-price service numbers, and, although using a home operator's calling card is cheaper than hotel rates, it is still expensive. Another option, which is becoming increasingly commonplace, is using mobile communications.

Prepaid services usually do not tie customers to a contract or a monthly subscription fee and therefore often promise greater freedom of use and choice of operators. They protect mobile operators from unpaid bills, since services are paid for in advance. (...)

The example from the Republic of Korea shows that, for low-end users, prepaid services are more interesting than postpaid services, and that the choice of prepaid services for the IPB does not necessarily disadvantage countries.
