Don’t we all love it when VoIP providers drop their call rates to various international destinations? For our readers from India and Philippines, we have some great news today. Read on to find out how to make cheap calls to India and FREE calls to Philippines.
Cheap Calls to India
Localphone, one of our trusted VoIP provider, recently announced its promotion for the month of May. Under the current promotion, you can make calls to any India landline or mobile phone for only 1.5 US cents. For the quality of service that you get with Localphone, this is a real good bargain. This rate is comparable to those offered by Betamax providers such as Rynga.com or Jumblo.
I have been very happy with Localphone and can assure you that you will have no reasons to complaint. If you are looking for cheap calling options to India, this is definitely an option to consider.
You can use LocalPhone as a calling card (i.e., dial a local access number and then dial the international number that you need to dial) or you can get unique local numbers for your contacts and dial the local numbers to be connected with your friends and family. Localphone even provides SIP access. You can use the following SIP settings to configure your SIP clients.
Display Name: Localphone
User name: [SIP ID]
Password: [SIP Password]
Authorization user name: [SIP ID]
Keep in mind that this rate is valid until 23:59 GMT on May 31, 2010. In addition, if you signup using this link, you can also get a FREE call to test the service before recharging.
Free Calls to Philippines
The second offer for this month is from Rebtel. If you have been following the VoIP space, it is difficult to miss Rebtel – Rebtel is one of the major companies in this industry.
Rebtel is offering calls to Philippines landlines for only 10.9¢ and mobiles for only 12.9¢. In addition, if you sign up using this link and use the voucher code pinoy60, you could also get 60 extra bonus minutes.
This offer is valid only until July 31st, 2010, so hurry up!! Like Localphone, Rebtel is also offering FREE test call to test the service before charging your account.
Once you create an account, you can create unique local numbers for your contacts. When you call the local Rebtel number, you will be connected to your desired destination. Rebtel does not provide SIP support, so the only way to make calls is using the local access numbers. Other than that, Rebtel is a full service VoIP provider, offering a range of services starting from cheap VoIP calls to low cost text messages (SMS).
So go ahead and make the most of these VoIP deals. Do not forget to share these deals so that your friends can also take advantage of these deals.
