Hi,

Eventually when UFB is going to be installed on my street, I plan on switching to Bigpipe, but since they don't do voice, I was wondering what is the best VOIP provider? I have used 2talk and it seems pretty good, but just wanted to see if there were any other options that are better.

Thanks

WXC Communications.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

That does really look really nice, especially the free area calls. Definitely will consider them

Also, do they support IAX2?

Define "best"?

IAX2 is a proprietary protocol used only by Asterisk. The only providers who will offer this are those running Asterisk as their core rather than a more enterprise grade network offering,

No, but their commercial product is a single SIP trunk with DDI's at which ever channel capacity you choose to buy.

WXC , you may pay a little bit more, but you get great support when you need it.  Their call center is in NZ and they reply to email requests also.

2Talk - Cheaper, more features, minimal support
WxC - Slightly dearer, less features, excellent support

If you are playing around with VoIP 2Talk is most certainly the easiest option. You control everything. You can add/remove DDI's, change plans, change call flows, choose registration or peering etc.. It's all up to you.
