AirtelCallhome : India One product (1cent per minute to India)

Few months back, it was Mediaringtalk which offered cheapest calls to India of 1.7 cents/minute. It was soon followed by Nymgo which then offered the lowest rate of just 1.3 cents per minute to call Indian mobile.

Then came the betamax with its ActionVoip service. It brought a kind of new game with offering less than a cent call to India. At present ActionVoip still holds the name of cheapest voip provier to India, their calling rate to India being just $0.007 per minute to India. (Less then 1 cent per minute).

All these voip provider have forced other calling cards providers and voip providers to decrease their calling rate to India. Many of you must be already using Airtel Call Home, a bharti Airtel product. We all are known to Bharti group (Airtel being a very old telecom provider in India).

AirtelCallHome 1cent per minute to India
A lot many people use Airtel Call Home calling cards only because of the good voice quality, cheap rates, good customer support etc.

Airtelcallhome has launched its India One product which allows you to call India at just 1 cent per minute.

The $ 9.99 pack of India One has a rental of $ 3.99, for the balance $ 6 you get the rate of 1 cent / min rate on local access.
This is applicable on any call terminating on either landline or mobile phone in India. i.e. you get an amazing 600 mins in just $10 on local access. You need to use the minutes within 30 days of buying the product.

The only thing to be noticed here is that this rate is applicable for local access numbers not for toll free access. If you call using the toll free number the rate is still an attractive 3 c/min.

There is one more catch in the tag line "Offering 1 cent/min to India". What about the rental money of $4. Its better to include this while calculating the effective rate. So you pay $10 and you get $6 credit that is 600 minutes. So your effective calling rate is 1.4 cents/minute. Well now I won't call this rate high, instead the rate is very very cheap as compared to other calling card providers.

Can existing customers buy this plan?
Existing customers can login and buy India One product on the Recharge page.

What about Refunds?
No refund of talk time value, rental or plan value will be entertained

I am very much convinced by what Airtel Call home is offering and would suggest people to atleast try their service. I know Free calls to India is possible now (but they are limited) so for all those who use Calling cards, AirtelCallHome is a very good option for them.

One thing we're all missing here is that many of these providers that are trying to go low are unknown entities that could fold up without warning. Since the nature of VoIP is such that we have to prepay, it is not a good feeling that because of the risk they take by selling service cheap, they could go out of business, resulting in a possibility of losing our money. Your thoughts?

But you can have faith atleast reknown Airtel .. the biggest name in this buisness !!

Well considering the name of Airtel group, it is the largest private telecom in India. So the insecurity that they will run with your money should not be present in case of bharti airtel.

however, a few others have complained of call not getting connected, hidden charges with Airtel. This is one point which definitely makes a difference while choosing your voip provider.

Its more like 1.8 cents per minute when you add in the rental fee and the taxes charged. False advertising!

April 15, 2009 at 8:27 PM

Well if that is the case, I mean the hidden charges, taxes and all then you may go for other options.

I would then suggest ActionVoip, SmartVOip, PennyTel etc.

Don't use the service.. Don't use the service.. Don't use the service.. Don't use the service.. This is just a fraud.. Please check your credit card statement. They charge heavily for this service. They enable automatic re-charge for my account and I was charged heavily for usage. Every couple of days My credit card was charged for $6.93. When called the customer care, the representative was rude and tried to finish the call soon and just disabled the re-charge.. I have applied for my refund. This is non-sensical service. Please be aware.....

I think Airtel Call Home well realize that the its previous offer was not 1 cent actually. so it is now revamping original IndiaOne offer and it is even better now.
