Is Numbertank Legitimate?
VOIP calls or calls over the internet in India are not allowed to terminate over normal PSTN lines, so it is interesting to see how Numbertank functions. Given that it is just launched, not many have taken note of it, but if the service became popular, we are sure they will attract wrath of telecom department.
The website does not offer too many details apart from the fact that it is based on VOIP, so one can safely say that such service may not be entirely legal.
We tried and it worked well, however, we may need to test its working over next few days to see if they will be able to sustain it.
Do give it a try and let us know what you feel about this new service.
