Are there web services which provide non-VOIP connections for international calls?

Which web service provides non-VOIP international calls? Web services like Viber-out , Skype-out , LINE and Facebook messenger provide either an app-to-app and/or calls to phones via VOIP. But are there web services which provide free or paid international calls to phones , by connecting over phone lines instead of data connection. Like , say a scenario , the webservice would call both numbers and connect.

    The only way to make "non-VOIP" calls is to simply make calls over the phone. Phone calls and internet traffic actually travel on the same lines (at least internationally) so there would be no point in having a service such as the one you suggest. There used to be a company called Jahjah (now bust) which did exactly what you describe, i.e. initiate the call from the web, ring both phones and connect them, but this used VOIP as well.

      Thanks. Please tell , a) are there services similar to , how you mentioned , initiate call from web or an app? b) services which can initiate international call from local phone call ( IVRS ) and then connect to international number

      Sorry, can't answer that, or I would have done so already.
