Rangatel Reviews & Service Offerings

Rangatel has been around for over a decade now having been founded back in 2003. Rangatel boasts about providing quality services at rates that are unbeatable. Rangatel’s headquarters can be found at 233 S Wacker Drive, 84th Floor Chicago, Illinois 60606. Rangatel offers a variety of plans that cater to specific needs of its clientele. These plans are specifically targeted to fit budgets, and provide the customer with exactly what they require.
Rangatel’s unlimited US/Canada plan is offered at $19.90 a month and is certainly a competitive price! Upon reviewing the terms of usage that were laid out in Rangatel’s reasonable use policy we deduced that this plan is not truly unlimited. Users will be charged per minute after reaching 3,000 minutes of usage! This limit in fact is quite reasonable; however it does not comply with the definition of unlimited. Rangetel’s rates in comparison to other service providers are certainly more expensive. For example VoIP Much offers a Canada/US plan that maxes out $9.45 per month. The discrepancy of $10 is certainly something that cannot be overlooked.
Rangetel prides itself in providing amazing international calling rates, so we have decided to put them to the test! Rangatel offers international calling rates to Mexico for 20 cents a minute which may seem to be a reasonable price. However in comparison to Yak which also provides great long distance rates, we can see there is a great difference. Yak offers international calling rates to Mexico for 12 cents a minute, which is a staggering eight cent difference!
After thoroughly reviewing a list of features provided by Rangatel for all plans we came across a few deficiencies. For example there is no fax service being provided to residential users within any of the plans. There is no smart app to speak of which caters to a very large amount of customers! These features can be found in abundance with other service providers for example Teliphone Navigata-Westel which offers a very economical fax to email add on to their existing residential plans.
The conclusion we can derive from putting Rangatel under a microscope is that there is nothing special to speak of. The rates of their plans are generally higher than other service providers; they also lack a few key features that are necessary in this day and age for most customers. All in all there are better options available to people who require exquisite service at a cheaper cost!
