grant_k:hasole: I've been using 2talk for a few months and found it to be really good feeding as a trunk to my asterisk box.
There rates are really hard to beat as well. 25c to a nz mobile..
Yes, 25c to NZ Mobiles is great -- BUT -- they do charge for Local Calls once you exceed 500 minutes per month.
And monthly sub. is $15 per month vs. $11.25 for VFX (or Free if you are an Xnet customer).
VFX on the other hand has unlimited free Local Calling.
2talk is extremely good value though, especially if you call mobiles a lot. VFX will be better for other people who make a lot of local calls.
You just use your PSTN line for local calling and use 2talk prepaid for the rest which would come out cheaper than Xnet and dont have to pay $11.25 to them if you are not their broadband customer + 2talk has free call forwarding to a number anywhere in the world for free. Someone rings my 2talk number and I could be in Australia, USA or wherever and I will not get charged a cent and person calling me pays NZ-NZ cell phone rate, if they have free minutes they use that up first. Free call forwarding roaming is only good if you have a local SIM card of the country you are in otherwise VFNZ charges $1/minute for inoming calls on roaming!
