This infographic was submitted to us by the folks at Essential Travel. Here is what they had to say about their infographic upon submitting it to us:

It is vital to carefully plan how you intend on staying in touch with loved ones when going travelling abroad. The infographic provides a step-by-step guide on how to research phone compatibility with international servers as well as how to select a mobile operator that will help you save money in the long-run. Interesting international phone call statistics are used to highlight the growing importance of cross-continent telephone usage.

I like that the different methods to make international calls are featured in an organized, informative way. The only thing I would change about the organization would be to show all the different groups of service providers either in a web that is horizontal (rather than the current vertical way) so that the reader doesn’t have to scroll down to know what he/she is looking at. Or, I would give each section a heading before listing out the service providers.

There is a lot of great information here, but the actual data visualization doesn’t start until more than halfway down the infographic. The price comparison section features a nice bar graph for comparison, but it might look better if it progressed horizontally rather than vertically so that the reader can see the entire graph at once. The Skype section at the very bottom has a lot of data that could have been visualized with some graphs rather than typography, which is more in alignment with the purpose of an infographic – displaying data.
