May 10th is celebrated as Mother’s Day in many countries across the world. It was reported by AT&T that during Mother’s Day 2008 the volume of international wireless calling rose by around 26 percent.

One of the most ‘traveled to’ as well as the most ‘frequently called’ countries’ continues to be Mexico. There exists a plan that offers great discounted rates whether you call or travel to Mexico.
