So, with this a lot of ISP can offer VOIP services. International calling price can go down to 50 paisa or 1.2 cents. Some of the big players can also offer ad based calling to India. Calls to India can also included in the free calling countries offered by Betamax Group like Intervoip, SMSdiscount, VoipRaider, VoipCheap etc.
