Ringo, a company which has set an standard of low cost calling all around the world has introduced low calling in India as well, now with Ringo you will be able to make calls to any landline or mobile in the country at a flat rate of 19 p/min, without any additional charges like roaming, STD or top-up cards, as most of the other VOIP apps uses your internet connection or data to make calls, here Ringo uses telephone networks which results in superior calling experience.
With Ringo’s standard rate of 19 paise, it is 90% cheaper than most carriers and 25% cheaper than the most popular calling apps that are Internet based. Additionally, the app offers 50 minutes of free talk time to every user who installs the app for the first time, and 50 additional minutes for every friend a user refers to Ringo. It can even make calls if the recipient of the call does not have the app installed.
Ringo is able to offer the price of 19 p/min by purchasing minutes in bulk at extremely low prices, and passing on the accrued savings to its customers by leveraging top-end technology. Ringo does not use your talktime, by using a unique call flow that connects both the initiator and the recipient of a call via a conference bridge.
Bhavin Turakhia, CEO and Founder of Ringo, said, “Our vision has been to make calling across the globe simple, seamless and low-cost for the masses. Our local calling service is not only the cheapest in India right now, but it is also free of typical telecom-related hassles such as STD charges and differential pricing. In a country where 3G penetration is not fairly high throughout, we also have a strong edge over Internet telephony apps, as Ringo calls do not use data, and are comparable in price.”
