Boost goes international with new Minute Packs

The prepaid carrier now lets subscribers purchase blocks of international calling for as low as $10.

Boost offers new international calling options Boost Mobile

Boost Mobile on Tuesday announced new options for customers who make international phone calls.

Available immediately, Boost Mobile customers can add 22 new "grab 'n go" International Minute Packs to their accounts for calls to other countries. With prices that range from $10-$20, the bundles allow for up to 1,000 minutes of talk time.

Keeping with the carrier's prepaid agenda, there are no long term agreements to the Minute Packs. The caveat, however, is that the minutes are only good for one month.

Those who make calls to other countries on a regular basis may wish to consider Boost Mobile's other international calling services. Rates start as low as $5 per month and can be added to the no-contract Monthly Unlimited with Shrinking Payments plans.
