International calling

Unbeatable rates for quality international calls

Today's global market place is highly competitive for cheap call rates. However we would advise you to do your research because not all cheap VoIP calls are comparable. As we explain in more detail below, there are networks and routes of different qualities out there.

By contrast, the Orbtalk network is built by a dedicated team of SIP engineers with a passion for building only the highest quality infrastructure. And once your call leaves our network, we only route with Tier 1 carriers for the best quality audio possible.

Tier 1 is a term gernally agreed to mean a network that can reach every other network on the Internet without purchasing IP transit or paying settlements.

Why is voip cheaper?

VoIP calls, particularly international voip calls, tend to be significantly cheaper than calls being routed over traditional PSTN networks. In part this is due to leveraging the already existing infrastructure of the Internet, but it also because VoIP is a disruptive technology and this new technology has enabled companies to challenge the monopoly pricing of a few big players.

If you want to be part of this revolution, then check out our international call rates - we think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

The term PSTN, or public switched telephone network, refers to the world's traditonal circuit switched telephone networks. The phrase is often used in contrast with modern VoIP networks that provide the same functionality, but route international calls cheaply over the Internet instead.

A word of warning

The dangers of Least Cost Routing (LCR)

On the face of it, it seems like a great idea. A VoIP provider signs up with multiple carriers and lets their software decide which company to route the call with, based on the lowest price available. If there was only a single broker involved, maybe this wouldn't be too bad, but what has happened over time is that dozens of these companies are all trading traffic for every call you make.

So what does this mean for your call? It means that your call can be passed between as many as half a dozen different companies before your call even connects, meaning slow dial times and poor call quality.

The murky world of "grey routes"

A white route is a completely legal route, from both ends of the call. A black route is an illegal call. A so-called "grey route" is a call that is legal for the party on one end of the call, but illegal on the alternate end. Unfortunately you will discover that some of the cheapest rates being offered out there are making use of these grey routes. Beyond the legality of these services, the end result is often appalling call quality, as well as major security risks.
