Betamax is a well known name in the voip industry and they keep adding varieties to their services. We have blogged about other applications by BetaMax earlier at CorVoIP. MediaRingtalk is one example of such applications that let you make free phone calls from your computer. If you have a Mic and speaker you can make free pc to phone calls using Mediaringtalk. Actionvoip is another application in market that we used recently. We quite like this application and therefore recommend it to everyone as a cheap international call service.
How to get ActionVoIP on your computer
Actionvoip is a great service unequivocally, however as all voip services need you to use a PBX or a software application, same is the case here. You need to download their application to your computer to make cheap international calls. Calls made to India using Actionvoip cost you around 1.5 cents for landline (including VAT) and 1.7 cents (including vat) for cell phones. This price is the cheapest, to the best of my knowledge, of all voip service providers. Update: There is IndiaLd offering cheap calls to India for just 0.8 cents per minute which is more than 2 times cheaper than Actionvoip’s rates.
Coming back to Actionvoip the application is easy to use. The options are self explanatory, you would not need to go back to instructions to use it. The call quality is also good enough. To start making cheap international calls you need to
- Download the client
- Buy credits
- Make cheap international calls.
What are the options to make calls using ActionVoip
- PC to PC calls: Two Actionvoip users can make free international calls with each other (pc-to-pc) similar to audio calls using Skype. If your contacts have a pc coupled with a Mic and speaker you can ask them to Install Actionvoip and you two can talk for free. I agree that nothing beats free calls but sometimes you just can’t wait for a new offer and for those times Actionvoip is good to go for. Actionvoip cheap calls are supported by Betamax which is a big name in voip industry and hence they are reliable to be in the market for long term. Other voip providers such as Nymgo and Mediaringtalk have started offering cheap calls to India but Actionvoip beats all by it’s competitive prices.
