Voice over IP is nothing new in Pakistan from – VOIP has played an important role for people to stay close to those who are far away from them. In the current times when life is becoming more mobile, keeping oneself attached to PC, is very cumbersome and the increasing power crises in the country makes it more difficult to use it.

Here comes VOIP on mobile, supported by SKYPE and Fring. This Fring is free software which supports to use SKYPE with ease, just register once and you can talk away any where you are – all you need is a supporting cell phone and data cable connection.

There are a lot of advantages of VOIP, as international phone calls from Pakistan is almost free but here is a need to pay charges for calling to Pakistan.
