Having said that, we use both at work (and am dealers for both), and I'm trialing 2Talk at the moment at home.

I use both also and have had good service from both. 2Talk has a reasonable deal at $15/month which includes 300 minutes outgoing and a free incoming Fax number (in addition to the incoming VOIP number). Alternatively they can provide an 028 number which costs nothing but callers to you are charged mobile rates.  The 2Talk line though is the cheapest for outgoing calls to mobile at 25c/minute.

VFX on the other had provide an incoming number for free provided you use them as your ADSL provider. The service and quality of VFX is exceptional.

Two good choices from my perspective - but if you can use VFX as your ADSL provider, they are probably the best option!  If not and, if you make a lot of calls, perhaps 2Talk.

Cheers Mike

"Best" is a very subjective term.

For my money 2Talk are better than WxC. You can connect any SIP compliant device to their service and they don't lock down the configuration. This appeals to me as I'm one of those people who prefers open standards and open source based systems and solutions.

2Talk is better, hassle free. I have used VFX but the configuration on the device are controlled by WXC, I found they change (Experiment) the configurations without the customer knows which makes the phones go crazy, I still have VFX (About to be disconnected)
I have crazy things going on with my VFX now, VFX support is scratching their heads cannot fix my problem
