You may feel confused with the word VoIP, but you most probably have enjoyed voip free calls without knowledge. When you call your friends on Facebook messenger free of charge, you are enjoying the advantage of voip free calls.(Also referred to as Voice over Internet Protocal)
Voice over IP is not something new to the regular internet user. It is the routing of voice conversation over the internet rather than the PSTN (Public switched telephone network). Voip free calls disrupt the regular telecom industry for its super low cost and easy setup.
VoIP has a very interesting timeline in the Indian Context. It witnessed notice way back in 1999 when this was termed as internet telephony and no need of it was sought. Hence it made no spot in the IT Act, 2000. Historically in 2008 the TRAI approved of VoIP in a report. However the government rejected the limitless access that the report advised for. In 2012 it made part of Unified License under the National Telecom Policy.
A central motivation behind this policy change is to provide Indians with more affordable options for interaction. Since voip free calls offer all the functionality and features of traditional telephony at a highly reduced cost, it only makes sense for Indian policy makers to open up the Indian VoIP Market. As of today, the legal limitations on VoIP calling are still kind of strict.
A promising area of the Indian VoIP market is the residential and SOHO (small business/home business) sector. Key to accessing any VoIP market is a solution that provides you with the tools you need to start your business and scale as you grow. Take TalkU for example, it offers a package of free services such as free international calling, conference call, mobile fax and business toll free number. Hence it is not hard to explain how it gained tens of millions of users in India in a short period.
