Hi all,

can anyone recommend some voip providers when I'll be calling from NZ to The Netherlands most of the time? Good price is important as is quality (yeah, I know, those usually mutually exclusive ;)).

Pointers and general recommendations are welcome.

I'll be running Asterisk and got a HandyTone-486 for my antique DECT wireless phone, with a 2 Mbps TelstraClear cable connection.

Thanks,

Bas.

You could try www.voipjet.com if you are looking for IAX terminattion. The rate to the Netherlands is only US$0.017/min.

Alternatives would be either www.voipbuster.com or www.voipcheap.co.uk for free calls to the Netherlands (should be possible with IAX). These two VoIP providers require registration and a small initial fee, but then all landline calls to the Netherlands are for free.

If you need other providers to the Netherlands or any other country in the world check www.myvoipprovider.com. They have a seach engine to find the cheapest VoIP provider to any destination in the world.

Hi,

haven't gotten around to installing Asterisk so voipjet is no option just yet (only does IAX as far as I can tell). voipbuster and voipcheap.co.uk require you to use a Windows application to do your calling which is what I'm trying to avoid ;) BTW, I don't have Windows boxes anyway. I see no mention on their sites of generic SIP calling.

I've so far used sipserve.co.nz and iTalk. Sipserve charges 15 ct/minute and doesn't provide me with a PSTN number whilst iTalk charges 5 ct/minute and gives me a number in Auckland. Not that usefull as I live in Wellington but they're working on that.

Both sipserve and italk, with my equipment, give me much better quality than Skype, and I get to walk about the house while calling without having to carry my laptop around with me ;) Time for some ritual burning of that closed Skype piece of software.

I'm now searching for a provider that can set me up with a dutch phonenumber so people can call me from there at local rates on my italk sip address. And find some time to put Asterisk on my linux box so I can start playing with that.

Cheers,

Bas.
