Just wanted to let others know the good experience I have had with 2talk.co.nz. I signed up with 2talk a couple of months ago on a single line to test the service out.  The intention is, all going well, to change our current 2 VFX lines over to 2talk and go with the business 5 line package.

I was nervous about 2talk after reading all the bad feedback but I have to say I have nothing but admiration for the service they provide.  SIP setup was easy and having setup a raspberry pi astericks server in the office, everything is working smoothly with great call quality.

For a small business you really can't beat a few second hand Grandstream SIP extensions and a raspberry pi Freepbx setup that uses about $6 of power each year.  Total setup cost of 4 extensions & 5 line exchange $300NZ.

I have rung the 2talk help line on 2 occasions,one of which was today and today they answered straight away and were very helpful   You can't really ask for more.

Thanks 2talk.

Great to hear. I've been using them for about 4 years now with basically no problems.

They have had support issues from time to time, but seems to be fairly stable lately.

It's good to hear you have been satisfied too.  The Broadband packages look interesting but there seems to be little feedback on users experience.  Up time and connection speed is pretty important to us so if anyone has good or bad experience with the 2talk broadband package please let me know.

PS guess the broadband question is more for the New Zealand Broadband forum, will try posting there.

We have many of our customers use 2Talk. They do provide a good service for the price conscious businesses.

Haven't tried it myself, but a few of our customers are fans of the Broadband. The ability to have cheap connections without a public IP and only connection to 2talk is a great one for dedicated VoIP lines.

2Talk are awesome. Things are simple and you have full control of your connection. Limited support for specific issues but there are plenty of resellers (like ourselves) that can help out with those. Just done a multi site job with VDSL at each site and heaps of numbers and it all worked really really well. We opted for a public address on each connection but was still cheap enough.

Pretty good for 'cowboys' lol...
