Several years after Tel3, Pingo and Reliance rolled out their card-less phone services to India, VSNL is rolling out a similar me-too international calling service for South Asian immigrants in the U.S.
Dubbed Trueroots, the service was unveiled at a function on August 16 in New York City.
The per minute rates for the calls, whichÂ are to be carried on VSNL’s fiber optic network, were not disclosed.
Trueroots includes a prepaid recharge option, PIN-less dialing for up to five registered phone numbers and the ability to make up to three follow-on calls without having to redial the access number.
The service is supposed to be available starting August 21.
Trueroots is set for launch in Toronto for the Canadian market later this year.
