I'm after free calls to the USA and India.
1) What is the minimum top-up for these companies?
2) How long are their freedays?
3) How is their call quality?
I use https://www.yourchoicevoip.com who have various different packages available. I make calls to Europe/US often for which I have whats called an International saver package, on which I only pay £6.99.:j
they say unlimtied but its actually 2000mins, i havnt reached that yet although ive been close on a couple of occassions.
quality was good through pc however when i bought an ip phone it was excellent.
They seem a bit expensive. The thing is with companies like www.voipcheap.co.uk and www.justvoip.com you could free calls to some countries and exceptionally low rates to other countries. It's more of a pay as you go scheme.
Still good to know of your VOIP experience.
is there a limit on how much credit you need?
sounds good although it would be interesting to compare the quality of the 2, but i guess when its free who cares!
I was with voipcheap in their early days however my credit used to expire if i did not use it and the quality was very bad and thats when i used to pay for the calls! so thats why i moved to ycv, not sure how they are now, anyone tried?
There is a minimum top-up of £10. This expires after 120 days.
Supposedly the quality of calls is excellent. I'm waiting for my VOIP adaptor to arrive (hopefully tommorow) so I can start making calls through a normal telephone.
For example, www.voipcheap.co.uk state their rate to call the Malaysia landline is 0.030.
Is that rate 0.3 of 1p or simply 3p per minute?
Sorry if the question is silly but just wanted to clarify.
Free to landlines.
You might want to look at some of the other Betamax VoIP services.
Most again are free to Malaysia landline but a couple have calls to Malaysia Mobile for 1 cent (Euro) (less than three-quarters of a pence).
Some offer 120 days of free calls to the free destinations other only 90 for €10 (Ten Euro (£7.20)) + 19% VAT Top Up (or £10 for .co.uk sites).
That €10 (or £10 depending on site) Top Up isn't lost on the free calls, you have the 90/120 days to make calls free to the free destinations, but can also use that credit on non-free calls, also after the 90/120 days you don't have to top up to get more free calls you can simply use the credit up on calls, charged at the listed rate and listed chargeable rate for the free destinations when out of free days.
I use the service on a PAP2 ATA. Call quality excellent.
