International Mobile Termination Charge is an additional per minute rate that’s applied to all international calls (direct dial calls from your home or business and calling card calls) originating in the U.S. and terminating in certain countries, to either wireless communications devices (including but not limited to mobile phones, pagers, personal computers and personal digital assistants), or to a portable telephone number where a forwarding, tracking or other type of location service is used.
Calls are billed in one minute increments.
These fees also apply to ranges of telephone numbers for special services as designated by the foreign telephone administration; they may or may not be wireless, and they may be for adult entertainment purposes. Many telecommunications companies outside the U.S. impose substantial fees to complete these telephone calls. In order to recover these fees, a mobile termination charge will be applied. The charge amount varies by country.
