StanaPhone extending reach of free calls

StanaPhone extending reach of free calls
StanaPhone was launched a few months ago with a very good proposal: limited free minutes for VoIP calls to telephone numbers in a selection of countries around the world and cheaper minutes to other countries not in the offer. When signing up for the service, the user also gets a telephone number, and as long as his computer is connected and StanaPhone is running, any calls to that number will reach the user's computer.

Since then the company had some time to measure the market, and now StanaPhone is planning to extend the free minutes concept. Users will no longer receive free minutes every month, but a monetary Bonus Credit will be added to each account. It's not known yet at what rate this will be credited, but a press release should be out shortly.

Additionally, users can now configure other devices, including Pocket PC with SIP clients or LAN connected SIP phones, to connect to the StanaPhone servers.

Competitor Skype launched a VoIP to POTS service called SkypeOut, but unlike StanaPhone so far there are no free minutes or a telephone number to allow callers to reach your computer.
