Update 1: I’ve updated my post to reflect the fact we have now rolled out geo numbers for 9 additional cities in India. You can see our full list of coverage here, with more to come very, very soon!
Traditionally, it’s been a real pain for international conferencing platforms to provide access to their customers in India.
Indian toll-free numbers assigned to companies based outside of the country have limited reachability because they must be dialed with an international prefix due to the country’s regulations, and there’s no requirement for networks within India to guarantee reachability of calls to these numbers.
Up to now, only companies based in India were allowed to access geographic numbers. So most of the biggest conferencing solutions on the market were able only to offer fairly limited access to their platforms for customers based in one of the world’s fastest growing economies.
Well we’ve felt your pain and heard your concerns, so we decided to do something about it. That’s why Voxbone is now one of the only providers of geographic numbers in India for international conferencing solutions!
Yes, after a fair amount of work behind the scenes, we are now able to offer fully-compliant local phone numbers offering 100% reachability. Keep an eye on our coverage page because we’ll be bringing new cities online in the very near future as we scale up across India!
We currently have numbers for:
Picture the scene: Those in the office have international access dialing and can join the conversations taking place around the world. But as more Indian employees work from home, access to toll-free number ranges becomes limited. And your potential customer base dwindles. So the need for geographic numbers grows.
These numbers can be dialed like any other local number and are reachable from all networks within India. So you can access your customers in the Indian market ahead of the competition. They’re also 50% cheaper than our toll-free numbers. It’s a win for you on price, quality and reachability!
