Another good thing about Pingo is that apart from offering local access number, it also offers a softphone for those who don't find a local access number for them. This way people from all over the world can use Pingo softphone for making voip calls (call quality is also satisfactory).
As we know the current rates to India are very low about 1-2 cents per minute. However, these rates are for Pc to Phone calls, the phone to phone calling rates still being about 2.5-3 cents per minute. Here Pingo proves to be a good choice as it also offers cheap rates apart from above said benefits.
