United World Telecom (UWT) is a telecommunications company based in Delray Beach, Florida, USA. Founded in 1996 by Thierry Genoyer, United World Telecom (UWT) began as a switch-based international callback provider.

United World Telecom has its own switching center located in a professional telecommunications center in Miami and utilizes multiple underlying Tier 1 carriers to connect calls.
International Callback: This service allows the customers to bypass high international calling rates in parts of the world where international calling rates are is still very high. To accomplish this UWT switching network chooses the appropriate carrier for each customer call based on the origination country of the call and the destination country. Because different carriers have different prices and levels of quality for calls to certain countries, the switch chooses the carrier with the best quality at the most effective cost for each call.
Virtual Calling Card: The company offers international calling cards known as “Virtual Calling Cards.” Calling card customers are given a unique PIN (personal identification number). To use the service, an access number is dialed and the PIN is entered. This gives the customer access to UWT’s network where they can then dial the destination number.
Global Call Connect: Global Call Connect is a direct dial international calling service. Customer dials an access number from a fixed or mobile phone, and upon verification of the caller ID number of the customer, access is given to United World Telecom’s international calling network without the need of a PIN.
