The best way to keep in touch

Today, we live in a global society. There are so many people who live and work away from their home country but thanks to the technology that exists, it’s so much easier than it used to be for people to stay in touch with their loved ones.

Of course, there’s the internet, and emailing, and this is so much better than the old airmail letters, where you’d have to wait days and weeks for a letter to bring news from one country to another. An email allows you to think about what you’re going to say, to edit it and change it, and compose your thoughts and feelings to the person you are communicating with. There’s not quite the thrill that a real letter in the post might bring, but that downside is far outweighed by the fact that you can get in touch immediately.

And after the email revolution, social media has changed how we can communicate again. You can update all your contacts at once, just by using Twitter or updating your status on Facebook. It’s made it so easy to communicate simultaneously to a wide group of people.

But if you miss your friends or relatives and want to have a heart to heart, nothing else does the job quite as well as a phone call. There’s something about hearing a person’s voice that can tell you so much more than words on a screen. And thanks to ever-decreasing costs in mobile price plans, speaking to people in another country becomes ever more reasonable.

Currently, more than a million Hispanic people move to the States each year. This represents almost half of the 2.3 million people joining the US population each year, on average. And more than 50% of the US Hispanic population live in three states — California, Florida and Texas.

For Hispanic people now living in the States, it’s now possible to take advantage of some amazing mobile phone deals if they want to stay in touch with their friends and family who live abroad.

At T mobile, for example, there’s the Stateside International Talk plan where for only $10 a month you can have unlimited calls to landlines in more than 70 countries, including Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Costa Rica, as well as countries in Asia, Europe and Africa. And for an extra $5 a month, you can upgrade that to include unlimited mobile to mobile calls to more than 30 countries. Visit this site to find out more. With so many Hispanic people moving to the States, it’s likely that these kinds of deals will just become cheaper over time.

For many people who live far away from their wider families and the friends they grew up with, the fact that mobile telephony has come down so much in price really makes it much easier for them to stay in touch and feel that the distance between them and their loved ones is not so big as it used to be. Technology is helping to make this a smaller world!
