Watford, United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 20, 2008 -- With the festive season in India beginning and Diwali, the most auspicious occasion in the Indian calender days away, thousands of inbound calls are being made to the Indian sub-continent. PC-to-Phone-calling services, an international favourite for long distance calling, have always been the preferred medium for communication around the globe. YouTring.com, a social networking cum IP telephony portal and an initiative of iCallGlobe, has recently announced a festive offer wherein users would be given bonus minutes for calls made to India via the portal. This offer is being seen as one of the major strategic maneuvers for the website to position itself as a major player in the VoIP arena.
With regards to this recent development, Sudhi B. Menon, Co-Founder and Business Development Head, iCallGlobe, stated "YouTring was based on the objective of making telecommunication around the world easier and more affordable. Normally, regardless of the bond you might share with your friends and family, the thought of making long telephone calls always creates a little bit of hesitation in our minds due to the cost factor. However, with the inception of PC-to-Phone services, a feasible solution has been arrived at. Now, everybody can talk their heart out without worrying about the cost factor."
Talking in detail about the festive offer, he stated that owing to the massive impact of globalization on South-East Asia, there are many Indians settled abroad. "Further, there are also many foreign nationals with strategic alliances within the country. What we are offering is basically the most cost-effective calling plan to India, minus any extra cost. All the user needs to do is sign-in, purchase credit, and start calling." The website had recently announced reduced rates for calling to Asian countries, with the lowest calling rate to any Indian mobile at 3.25 cents/minute being the highlight. Now, with the special Diwali plan, the PC-to-Phone service offer from the portal has become even more lucrative. Following are the details of the same:
- For every purchase of $25, the user would get upto 75mins free calling to India. - For every purchase of $50, the user would get upto 150mins free calling to India. - For every purchase of $100, the user would get upto 300mins free calling to India.
All the above offers are an added bonus extended by YouTring.com for the festive season besides the regular calling minutes to India according to the respective rates.
