I own a startup and make a lot of International calls to my customers in APAC region. Looks like I’ll go bankrupt pretty soon thanks to my rising phone bills. Skype monthly subscription rates are very high. Was wondering if there is a better alternative?
Skype is a total rip off. They have attractive rates to just few countries and the monthly subscription charge is very high. I use Global Call to call my friends and family in India and Pakistan. They offer nominal calling rates to Asia and run periodic promotions .Worth a try.
Sound quality depends on lot of factors. You cannot blame the app if the internet speed is slow. Slower the speed more the latency and other voip related issues surface. I’ve never faced any issue with Global Call so far wrt sound quality when I call India. To be honest Skype has the best quality but Global call gives a better pay as you go option .
That’s quite a good promotion for Japanese users. I’ll make sure word reaches few of my Japanese customers. Btw like I earlier mentioned I tried Global Call for the first time for the past few weeks during my business visit to Vietnam (My colleagues and friends used this app instead of VoIP to get in touch with me). It just cost them a paltry 6 cents. Very good value for money for users who want to make just plain phone calls to landlines and mobile phones.
btw I forgot to ask you did you enter your id for the 1 +1 event. I presumed you'd have got an in app notification regarding the event http://www.globalcall-1plus1.com/event_w/en/event_w.html . Enter your id here . Basically you double your credit purchase .You can purchase a maximum of $50 as credits (which I did last week leaving me with $100 credits which won't expire ). If you haven't tried it out yet I suggest you give it a shot before the event expires.
