However, to call someone, the individual also needs an active data connection and the same amount of information consumed on his phone during an online call.

On the other hand, normal calls don’t charge for incoming calls, so this is a graph of comparison between net call charge & Normal call charge:

Calls on the 3G network were apparent but call 2G network echoed & were not clear.

Hopefully, WiFi relationship with great speed may also give better calling experience.

A current 2G network of unique carriers does not offer stable 2G rates, so internet calls can’t be eloquent.

For international calls, VoIP phoning is a fantastic feature only if you’re on WiFi.

With the present state of 3G and 2G mobile Internet in the country, you only cannot make a global telephone while on-the-go.

The caller has to have better rates for the better experience. Viber vs Whatsapp vs Hike
