There are many unserved regions around the world where only a regular phone call can be done. These regions can be too remote for the data services to reach, can be too expensive for locals to adopt it or too expensive for Skype users to make a call using Skype rates.

Skype’s call quality is much better than Viber’s, both for voice and video.
