BANGALORE: Net4India Ltd. has received the Letter of Intent (LoI) from
Government of India to offer International long distance (ILD) services in
India. The company plans to offer ISD calls cheaper by 40 per cent from the
existing rates.

Net4India, CEO Jasjit Sawhney said, "The total size of ISD market in
India is $ 1.5 billion and is expected to grow by 25 per cent CAGR over the next
5 years. By using Carrier Access Codes (CAC) or a prepaid calling card platform,
our customers will be able to make ISD calls at 40 per cent lower than the
existing rates. At present we are in talks with international telecom carriers
as strategic partners for call origination and termination and will be launching
the ILD services later this year. Apart from the prices it will be the quality
of services that will be the differentiating factor for the players in the
segment. And this will be our core advantage over other players in this

the launch of ILD services Net4India becomes ISP + ITSP + ILD services company.

data, voice, video available on IP network) company. Net4India plans to invest
Rs 200 crores over a period of 2 years in the infrastructure and the ILD
