Based out of Mumbai, an international voice calling app, Ringo, has introduced local calling service in India priced at 19 paisa/minute. It enables users to call without an internet connection.
Users can call on any landline or mobile no. in the country, without being charged for roaming, STD or top-up cards. Unlike other VOIP apps, Ringo uses telephone networks instead of phone data or the Internet for a phone call.
Speaking on the development, Bhavin Turakhia, CEO & founder of Ringo stated, “Our vision has been to make calling simple, seamless and low-cost for the masses across the globe. Our local calling service is not only the cheapest in India right now, but it is also free of typical telecom-related hassles such as STD charges and differential pricing. In a country where 3G penetration is not fairly high throughout, we also have a strong edge over Internet telephony apps, as Ringo calls do not use data, and are comparable in price.”
Ringo was founded in 2014 by Bhavin Turakhia, a flagship product of Directi. It is a voice calling app that helps customers to get rid of the hassles of communication, like switching to different apps for calling options, confusing tariff plans, high costs and low quality calls.
Directi’s other products include Flock, Zeta, Radix and Media.net.
