How to Make International Calls - India Travel Guide. Saumya shows how to make international calls and use Internet during your India trip.
How many times have you landed in a foreign country and you have no idea how to make a telephone call or use the internet? I will show you how to stay connected with your friends back home during your visit in India. India has these STD/ISD booths all over the country. STD is for domestic calling and ISD for international calling. SO, if you see a booth that says STD and not ISD, it does not offer international calling.
I am going to place a call to United States today. The prices here are not too expensive. For example, it would take me roughly rupees 7, or 15 cents, a minute to call U.S. All I have to do is dial my country code and a local number. On the display meter, I can see my current charges. My call cost is rupees 30. And remember, I do not need to tip the attendant.
Internet cafes are also very common in India and you generally find them in the local market. Broadband is available in India, but is limited. If you wanted the fastest connection, I would suggest going to Reliance Web World. Keep in mind, that since broadband is limited in India, anything over 100 kilobytes is considered broadband. So, if you see a business advertising broadband, you might be disappointed to learn that its speed is not measured in megabytes per second. But, the speed here should be sufficient to keep in touch with family and friends through e-mail. And again remember, you do not have to tip the attendant. Now you know how to stay connected in India. I am Saumya, showing you my city.
