Do you wonder how the price of calls to India from US has gone down? I came to US in 2003 and rate per minute to call India was around 18-20 cents. I was a student that time and it was really hard for me to manage with such a rate. I was just able to call my parents and didn’t speak to my relatives, friends for months.
and it was really hard for me to manage with such a rate. I was just able to call my parents and didn’t speak to my relatives, friends for months. I used to call my parents every Sunday for 5 minutes only. Yes, for 5 minutes only. You can ask me San why is it just 5 minutes, it is just a dollar man. Yes, I know it was a dollar but I had to think twice to buy a mc chicken for me. That was a kind of life then.
Today the rates went down like anything. Companies are selling it even in pennies per minute. Believe me even the STD (calls from one state to other) calls in India is more than what we pay here to call India. Isn’t it surprising? I remember when Reliance first came with the service for calling to India in just 13 cents then I thought what a life saver. Then it was Airtel and Tata to compete with it to get the rate down to just 2.5 cents or so. Wow, what a price to call India. Is it real, how can the rates go down to 3 cents in 6 years of time. I was really happy with the rates provided by these 3 major companies and never looked beyond to find any cheapest way to call India.
I was reading one of my friend’s blog and came to know about pinlessexpress.com, I couldn’t believe the rate it provides. It is just 1.8 cents a minute and it is not rounded to nearest cent, it goes up to Millicent. Remember if you see Sharukh khan holding a banner of 1 cent a minute doesn’t mean Airtel is providing the service of calling India in just 1 cent a minute. If you see the plan, it is just 600 minutes in $15 so it comes to 2.5 Cents a minute. Why should I pay 40% more to these branded companies like Reliance, Trueroots, Airtel when I get the same facilities in 30% cheaper from pinlessexpress.com. Well this is a new company that you never heard about but just to let you know this is a company promoted by pinlessworld (if you ever heard of this company). I trust pinless world as I used its service before and wrote a review as well. They got me the cheapest India calling plan for 2.2 cents and voice quality was excellent. Now they are promoting pinless express with even cheaper rate then what is the harm in trying it for $5 only? If you are looking for cheapest way to call India then trust me and try the service, if you find any problem then come back and let me know about it.
