Plivo has introduced origin-based pricing on its Zentrunk and Voice API offering. Origin-based pricing is a concept where one destination has different call rates depending on where the call has originated from. As a result, Plivo customers benefit from reduced calling prices from specific origins, for select regions.
We will continue to expand our coverage into other destinations in line with our carrier partners.
How will origin-based pricing benefit me?
Historically, we did not differentiate call rates based on where the call originated from. Plivo has built in the routing intelligence to identify the call origin country and incorporate the corresponding rate. This means a single destination can have different call rates.
For example, a call originating from a country outside of Europe toward Austria - Mobile numbers costs $0.3980, while a call originating from a European country toward Austria - Mobile numbers costs only $0.0390, or about one-tenth as much.

Plivo offers origin-based pricing in Europe for calls that terminate in these countries:
