With over 400,000 performers and tourists having descended on
Scotland's capital city for Fringe season, cheap call provider Firstnumber
is encouraging Edinburgh's international visitors not to mar memories
of their vacation with costly phone bills.
With visitors of all nationalities soaking up the festival atmosphere, the chances
