Updated rates August 13, 2013 to Gabon, Mauritania, and Uganda. Also the cellular rates for Ukraine and Russia.
Note: Due to intrastate regulation when making a call within a single state, such as calling from one city to another in Texas, add 3 cents per minute to the stated USA rate. Calls beyond the state line or to other countries are not affected by this change.
