Internet has not only interwoven the world with invisible wool, but has done it so tightly that the world has started to shrink and is getting smaller each day. Other than the massive information exchange that Internet facilitates, the possibilities that it could unlock are immense and are yet to be fully explored. One of such leeway is Internet Telephony which has come up as an affordable way of connecting with the world in comparison to the traditional ways. Albeit in a restricted way, India allowed Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to offer internet telephony in April 2002. Sensing what the future enterprises and customers would require, World Phone Internet Services Pvt. Ltd., emerged as one of the pioneers in exploring the internet telephony space. It astounded its competitors launching its services at a price point which was 75 percent lower than the price prevailing in the market a decade ago.

Over the years, World Phone has made its mark as one of the distinguished players in the ISP/ITSP space and has been recognized as a Category 'A' Internet Telephony Service Provider licensed by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), Government of India. Backed by the U.S. based multinational TI Investment Services, the 2000 founded organization strives to bring communication commensurate with world standards to India. Aided with superior technologies, the services offered by World Phone deliver high speed, exceptional clarity and flawless connectivity. Today, it holds an edge in providing services ranging from Internet bandwidth, Internet Telephony (VoIP) and related services for corporate as well as domestic users.

Leading the way in breaking the cost barrier, the New Delhi based World Phone offers VoIP call solutions to over 30 countries - at ISD call rates less than a rupee, call center solutions, broadband Internet solutions and international calling booth solutions. The IP PBX Solutions developed by the in-house team at the company helps corporates connect to their offices across the world with zero STD or ISD cost involved. The company also offers cable broadband internet service for Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR) and has even launched the lowest ever tariff of Rs.95 per month for its potential users.

Well aware of the fact that Internet penetration has not even touched 10 percent of the total population in India; the company believes that whileat one hand, the mobile penetration, social channels, and applications are driving the internet growth, on the other hand there is an unregulated competition coming from foreign players that needs to be regulated by the government to stimulate fair competition in the market. "We believe there is lot to be done by the government and the ISPs to take internet to the last mile user. Contributing our share driving the change, we engage ourselves in constant research and development to ensure our customers are connected to the world seamlessly without any hassle," says Aditya Ahluwalia, Chairman, World Phone Internet Services Pvt. Ltd.

With a strong team of over 150 people on board, the average tenure of employees at World Phone has been 6-7 years. With utmost belief in the ability of its team, the company wishes to obtain unified access license in the coming year while offering various other digital services.
