VoIP in India

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) has emerged has a major resource for doing long distance calls at the cheapest rate. Now from India people can make calls to America, UK and Dubai for few Indian rupees raging from Rs 3 to 5. These rates are 60% to 80% lower than the rates of call charges available with various telephone operators. Initially, VoIP was not successful in India because of the poor internet services. However, with the entry of high speed broad band and DSL network it is possible to make VoIP calls easily from India.

Recently the economical broad band service from BSNL (a state telephone service provider) has even made it possible to do VoIP call from home; otherwise many cyber cafĂ©’s (Sify cafes) are providing this opportunity. Nobody has thought that internet could also do phone calls for us and that too at this cheap rate. Now we can make VoIP telephone calls either to other VoIP devices, or to normal telephones on the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network), this is other advantage and this option is free from the dependency of computer. For countries like India VoIP has emerged as a big advantage to be in contact with near ones.
