Generally wireless international long distance does not differentiate
between wireless and wireline terminations if only because the
wireless operators generally charge a good deal more than wireline
companies. Where wireline long distance companies might put a cost of
only 5 cents/minute to call from the US to a UK wireline connection
and 30 cents/minute to call a mobile terminated call the wireless
operators will charge 29 cents/minute to call the UK with no
differentiation between terminating to a wireline or wireless
termination. Those who make lots of international calls have learned
to use alternative long distance providers such as Gorilla Mobile
<> or One Suite <>
where they get much better international rates even to wireless
