I have set up a page on my site giving people the pro's and cons of each voip service provider. http://www.i-voip.co.uk/page/voip_service_providers.php
Hope you find it helpful.
They (supposedly) offer free calls to landlines in over 40 countries, but my username is not being recognised yet.
The maximum call length is one minute but if you credit your account with £10 you can (supposedly) call those 40+ international destinations untimed for free.
Cant seem to find anywhere that says what connection it has - but I have used 2 different Sipura products - the 1001 and now the 2000 and they both connect via a router and ethernet cables - so I would assume the 3000 is the same. So you would need a router for it to be able to connect and then as long as you left the router on it does not matter about the PC as the two are independent of each other.
After an unsuccessful attempt to use a calling card on my VOIP line, my VOIP supplier (https://www.sobroadband.com) informed me the other day that i cannot use calling cards (used for overseas calls) on my home VOIP line. I just don't understand how this is possible....if i can make int'l calls using a chargeable access number (eg Telediscount) on my VOIP line, then why on earth can't i do the same thing with a calling card? (which has a 0800 access no).
Thanks in advance.
Probably not quite the answer you are looking for, but relatives from Kenya call my folks on Skype using a dial up connection. They also use normal Voip (but don't know which package) to call land lines in the UK.
The quality is not that bad at all, especially compared to the quality of calling cards when calling to Kenya.
The main catch is that the €10.00 (£6.98) credit is only valid for 120 days. You have to weigh up how many minutes of international calls to which countries you are going to make in this 120-day period and see if it would be cheaper than €10.00 (£6.98) to make these calls by other means, such as using Telediscount, 1899, free minutes from mobile phones via simply-fone etc.
It's all to do with intercarrier charging. Your voip supplier doesn't have any mechanism to get a share of the calling card opertor's revenue (0800 recipient (card company) must pay access costs back down the line to the originating carrier (your voip supplier)). Consequently they have barred access to the card platforms 0800 number).
