Vonage World Plan Review - How is Voice Quality to India calls?

Vonage has recently added India to the list of countries for unlimited international calls from USA. We have opted for this connection on August 20th 2009.

This is the first cut review of this plan within very short period of time (only few days) so consider this as an initial review and do not have any strong opinion about it.

This review is a comparison based on my experience with Vonage World Plan and other calling cards I tried till date.(e.g reliance india call, airtell call home, rebtel, union telecard and true roots)


  1. Getting the Connectivity

  2. We have observed that the connectivity is really good. During last few weeks we have observed absolutely no connectivity problem. Phone quickly connects without any problem to any number in Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore and Cities in Madhya Pradesh (e.g. Indore,Ujjain, Bhopal, Khandwa). I have not tried calling other cities, but if you have some experience please share in comments.

    I have kept Vonage World plan connectivity in Pros as I have seen lot of connectivity problems with few other calling cards I tried till date.(e.g reliance india call, airtell call home, rebtel, union telecard and true roots)

  3. Voice Latency

  4. Voice Latency is clearly a Pro of Vonage World Plan. I have observed all calling cards have a small delay in voice, but I did not observe this with Vonage World Plan in last few days.

  5. Voice Clarity

  6. Voice clarity is good. I did not find a difference between a USA call and international call voice level.


  1. Voice Breaking

  2. We have observed voice breaking a few times. This has been observed more by the receiving end (India).

  3. False Rings

  4. We have observed "False Rings" a couple of times.
    "False Ring" - Means when we make a call we can hear the phone ringing, but the receiving end never gets a ring on their phone. We have observed this on Cellular phone in Madhya Pradesh.

  5. Impact during heavy internet usage

  6. This clearly is a downside of any VOIP phone. If you are watching a video on Youtube then your phone call voice will start breaking, and at times you cannot hear anything.

  7. Long duration calls

  8. We have observed that most of the times phone automatically disconnects after 30-45 minutes.

Recommendation for new users
My personal recommendation is to definitely try it, as Vonage provides you free service for initial 2 months and its worth giving a try. You can follow my referral link to try it.

Recommendation for existing customers
Existing Customers who are paying $24.99/mo or more should definitely try this plan. If you previously had unlimited USA calling plan then it will be smarter to move to World Plan at the same rate.

Update 1:
I have been using Vonage world plan for over a few months now and still didn't face much issues then above mentioned. There are few times when we had connectivity problem during Diwali & some other festivals. Otherwise connection quality is pretty much the same as it was during time of subscribing.
