    BSNL isd packs are much much cheaper than this
    For ex in BSNL call to USA is 1.49rs/min while in viber its 6rs/min and data charges extra

    Viber out rates are way costlier than Vonage, Viber out charges 1.9 cent per minute for calling USA Vonage charges 1 cent, Viber out charges 4.9 cent for calling Indian mobile numbers Vonage charges 2.4 cents, this clearly shows Viber is literally charging double of Vonage, the choice is clear.

    This table is not fairly comparing rates, both are still too expensive. I’m using Mobilevoip app with betamax labels, Takes some time to find the best rate, but they’re 4x as cheap as Viber.
