Voice Over IP and PLDT
Voice over IP services are now being marketed by PLDT, a major telecom company in the Philippines. But it's not your usual hook your computer to the internet-type of VoIP.[an error occurred while processing this directive]
PLDT is marketing low-cost international long distance phone cards, which is great considering that only a tiny percentage of the Philippine population has access to computers.
For cellphone users, an international long distance call costs around US$0.40 per minute. With the PLDT budget card, the price goes down to 18 cents.
If you were to avail of VoIP services via your computer (plus a P2,500/month internet connection), you'll spend between US$0.10 and US$0.20 per minute.
Simple Break-Even Analysis
Should you go for PLDT's $.18/min budget card or go with another local VoIP service provider? If the service provider charges US$0.15/min, go with them if you will make at least 1,488 minutes of overseas calls per month. If your consumption is less than that, go with the PLDT budget card.
