Airtel announces a New service where you can call India from US for 1 Cent per minute.
To enable NRIs in the US to call friends and family back in India at competitive rates, telecom services provider Bharti Airtel has launched an "India One" offer. This scheme will provide users calling rates of 1 cent a minute on its online calling card service Airtelcallhome.
The $9.99 pack of India One has a rental of $3.99; for the remaining balance of $6, you get the rate of 1 cent/min rate on local access.
You need to use the minutes within 30 days of buying the product.
"Through this offer, we are looking at delivering value to the 3 million strong NRI population in the US, who reach out to their friends and family in India," said the company's spokesperson at the product launch.
Airtel has also launched other features for US consumers, including auto recharge, free SMS from the web, as well as audio-conferencing facilities.
Subscribers will be able to buy the online calling card for $10 through the Airtelcallhome website or through phone by calling the toll-free number 1-877-247-5150 in the US.
Airtel CallHome was launched in the US in 2006. It is available in UK, Singapore, and Canada since 2008.
