Calling Rate Comparison for India : Cheapest Calls to India

So many people have asked us this question and we have to point them to our various blog posts. There is no doubt that we have reviewed so many different voip providers and almost all of them now offer very cheap rates to India. But nowhere on internet you will find plain simple calling rate comparison for India. So we have decided to make a tabular comparison of calling rates to India.

We have tried our best to include all the calling cards provider and all the voip providers, but yeah we could have missed many (there are so many). So just let us know in the comment section and we will include them in our table. Though calling rate is a good factor in deciding over a calling card/voip provider, but please note that it should not be the only factor.

Many a times voip provider offer cheap rates but their customer support is bad, or they offer one method to make calls. So make a wise decision. Please note that incase of betamax providers, the prices of inclusive any taxes. We have also sorted them in increasing calling rates order.

It is very interesting to see the calling rate variation. I didn't realized that rates vary so much. I always thought it to be in 1-3 cents range, but! Also none is offering all inclusive (taxes) price of less than one cent per min. I am not taking into consideration any promotional offers which tend to lower the effective calling rate. We will soon try to update this post to include field for Android App or iPhone App or SIP Calling etc..

India Calling Rate Comparison

Voip ProviderCalling Rate to India (cents/min)
IndiaLD (Monthly Plan)1
IndiaLD (Pay as u go)1.5
Sunno Voip1.7
Keku Calling Cards1.89
Tribair Voip2.4
If you like any other voip provider to be added to this list, then please share its name in comment section. Also if you see any discrepancy in the rates or in any other information, then also please inform us. We would love to keep this page updated with the latest information. Its time you start making cheap calls to India.

Voip calls on Blackberry Mobiles by Mobileiser With Free Credit

I know so many people who have switched from blackberry to iphone or android mobile, simply because of one reason that "there are no voip applications" for blackberry. If you check our post for viber app for blackberry then you will see so many disappointed customers, tired of waiting for the blackberry app.
Even if you somehow find any mobile voip app for blackberry then its calling rates are not cheap, forget about free calls. But today we will discuss about one mobile voip application only for blackberry mobiles, which not only offers very cheap international calls but is also offering free trial calls worth $10.

We are talking about MobileMiser by FroogleCall. It offers cheap and easy to use voip service for blackberry customers. They claim that you can save upto 80% on your phone bills, by switching to them for making both domestic and international calls. But the main attraction of MobileMiser is a promotional offer where they are offering free trial credit worth $10 for blackberry users.

If you have a blackberry mobile and want this free trial credit worth $10, then just follow the instructions below. Lets us know if you face any issue.

- Visit the following link : Enter all your details. After that simply click submit. With successful signup you will see $10 free trial in your account.

A person reviews the service :
I changed my Rogers plan to an unlimited incoming call plan ($25) and added My5 local ($10). I then made FroogleCall's access number one of my favourites and signed up for MobileMiser's Unlimited North America Plan ($29.95). That's $75* per month!

Below is a screenshot of MobileMiser (FroogleCall) Calling Plans. Choose the one that suits your need.

I checked their international calling rates. I guess these are competitive however not the best ones. Many voip services offer cheaper calls. They offer calls to India at 2.9 cents per min, Pakistan at 10.1 cents per min.

If you are using Blackberry mobile, then I would certainly recommend you to start using MobileMiser FroogleCall plan by choosing the free trial plan.
