Airtel 3G International video calling service for India

A month after the Indian government set a deadline to put a monitoring mechanism in place for intercepting video calling on a real-time basis, Airtel has come up with its latest offering for the same. The announcement of the Airtel 3G International video calling service follows the launch of its 3G services in the north eastern belt earlier this month.
This new service claims to connect India with more than 227 countries and allows users to share important moments of their lives in real time with people abroad through 3G. Customers of the company’s 3G services can now take advantage of the Airtel internet on 3G to make international video calls and share information instantly.
Atul Bindal, President of Mobile Services, Bharti Airtel elaborated by saying, “At Airtel, it is our constant endeavor to introduce services that enrich the lives of our customers. As we take the lead in launching International Video Calling on 3G in India, this marks the beginning of a new era of next generation communication in the country – one that will help mobile customers break the barrier of boundaries and instantly connect with their personal and business network across the world. Given the high demand of video calling services seen since the launch of Airtel 3G services, we are confident that our customers will see great value from the availability of this capability for international calls as well. We invite our 3 million plus Airtel 3G customers to enjoy this exciting experience.”
To make ISD video calls, the receiver as well as the sender is required to use 3G network and possess a front facing camera in their 3G handsets. By virtue of this service, callers can interact face-to-face with their friends and relatives residing in any country where this service is applicable.
The Airtel 3G International video calling service is priced at Rs. 20 per minute for countries like UAE, Singapore, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and Oman. While for Canada, Bangladesh and USA, the price is Rs. 14 per minute.source
