Ringo, a popular application for voice calling which arrived in India early this year, on Thursday made an announcement that new tariff changes are being made for voice calls. The company states that if its services are used, calls can be made across the country, STD as well as local at a price of 0.19 per minute.
The debut of the application was seen last year in many regions and this offers voice calls at a price of 0.19 per minute. Compared to popular telecom operators like Vodafone, Idea or Airtel, the charges of which are around 1.20 per minute and for STD, around 0.40 per minute with special tariff plans. Ringo makes claims that the talk time cost can be reduced by the users by around 90 percent with the help of this device.
How Ringo Works?
Firstly, the Ringo Application has to be downloaded and one must tap on the person she wishes to talk. Instead of the user talking directly to the person, Ringo would call the person and would connect the user to the contact. For, this, there is no need of recipients having this application on the handset and voice calls work very well even if there is no reliable connection.
The founder and CEO of Ringo, Bhavin Turakhia says that the vision is making calling across the globe low-cost, seamless and simple. Right now, the local calling service is very cheap, but there are issues when it comes to STD charges. Ringo doesn’t make use of data and it is quite comparable in price. Earlier, this application was tested and it was found to be quite good even though not internet-free completely. The application worked quite reliably and there was no issue of spotty data networks too. This application can be downloaded for the Android phone from Google Play Store and on the iPhone from App store.
