Hello,

 

 

I hope this is an appropriate question for this forum:

 

 

I'm looking for a VoIP provider in NZ to bridge to the regular phone system. I want a landline number that others can call, and I want to be able to make calls via that number, but the pricing has to be acceptable. The last time I checked, I was being asked for $20/month termination fees, and I was hoping things have moved along a bit and you guys know a good provider you can recommend. Needs to support SIP, though I could handle IAX too.

 

 

Thanks,

 

martin

You sound like you can talk the talk, so you're probably a good contender as a direct customer of 2talk.

I'll check 'em out. Have a referral code, in case you want me to punch that in?

 

 

Also, they offer "028 numbers". Are there any strings attached to those? Like are they more expensive to call, or even premium numbers? I searched the web, but couldn't really find anything that would lead me to believe this. Just making sure though…

Gee thanks! :) Will PM you a referral code to use.

 

028 numbers are classed as cellular in the NZ numbering plan (refer nad.org.nz).

Yeah, the 028 numbers cost to call in NZ. If you get a free 028 number, you can then also get an additional ddi number for $6.90 / month which will be a normal local number for people to call.

 

That's what I do.

assuming you already have an internet service, most RSP's do a voice line packaged for another $10 not 20$?
