Call India_NimbuzzOut

We at Nimbuzz work day in and day out to connect our users to their loved ones across the world. In an endeavour to minimize the cost associated with the special bonds you share with your friends and family, Nimbuzz has slashed its NimbuzzOut calling rates by as much as 50%.

NimbuzzOut is a VoIP calling platform that allows Nimbuzz users to call India at prices far below conventional rates. With this move, all Pay As You Go (PAYG) calls will be charged at 1.59 cents per minute irrespective of whether they are calling a mobile or a landline number.


Nimbuzz is India’s Fourth Most Attractive Internet Brand

November 6th, 2013

Nimbuzz Thank You!

The Trust Research Advisory (TRA) recently launched its report on India’s most attractive internet brands and the results were surely overwhelming. The Report rated Nimbuzz as the fourth most attractive brand in India ahead of Gmail, Zapak and Wikipedia.

Nimbuzz moved its headquarters to India only a few years back and to be already competing with brands that have been here for much longer is an honour. We would like to specially thank all Nimbuzz users across India who have made this achievement possible. Recognitions like these will only push us to work harder and faster in our endeavour to create an ecosystem that fosters a connected world.

Nimbuzz connects over 150 million users globally and over 25 million users in India adding almost 210,000 new registrations every single day. Our commitment to the conversation age is renewed and we sincerely hope that with Nimbuzz your world has come closer.

Nimbuzz and Spectranet make International calling affordable.

October 22nd, 2013

The exorbitant costs associated with international calling are forcing Indian’s to alter their communication lifestyles. In a global environment where territorial boundaries no longer bind conversations, it is imperative to build an ecosystem that supports the concept of a connected world both in intent and cost.

Driven by the belief that communication deserves to be free, we today announced our partnership with Spectranet to introduce Spectranet hello ip powered by Nimbuzz. This joint initiative will enable Nimbuzz users to make international calls at prices starting 1 paise/second. With Spectranet hello ip, Nimbuzz is all set to initiate a revolution in the international calling space that would drive the end value back to the customer. The magnitude of cost savings can be best exemplified by the comparisons below:

Destination Operator Rate (INR/min) Spectranet hello ip Rate (INR/min)
USA 6 .60
Canada 6 .60
United Kingdom 6 .60
