International phone companies and long distance carriers

International telephone firmsTelecommunications companies are the heart of information transfer in the world as we know it. Somehow a carrier in the United States must communicate with a Japanese or Chinese service provider. They in turn, must converse with for example a Russian or Central African company. This provider is talking to Brazil or South Africa or Spain. Consider two the multitude of languages in the world. Each long distance carrier must somehow interface with each other on a technical level too!

For the sake of completeness, we have listed links to the major telecommunication backbones in the world. We would like to know about your country. Please e-mail supportdesk@attitude-long-distance.com and tell us about the service provider who provides your international communication miracle.
