Hello all who use VOIP or are looking for VOIP services. I've been using VOIP first with italk with good results. Now I use a Aust  toll provider at great rates. 10 cents per minute uncapped talk as long as we like and only 10 cents to NZ Aust etc landlines. I also use Xtra Wireless Broadband with no problems at all. I dont have jet stream as Im in the country so the wireless service is great i have to say. I also use a wireless land connection for all my computers in the house. So we have 3x computers that can connect all at once and we also have 3 lines with VOIP. The only time we can have a slight hassle is when we do a major download and try to talk at the same time. Apart from thet its all good. My last bill was 972 minutes usage for $13.84 dollars. Man is that great Value !! Laughing

do you link all those together with a VoIP PBX (Asterisk?)

I just signed up for iTalk from Slingshot and have been over-billed for a call that they diddnt hang up at their end after I hung up my phone! Going to fight this one, I have logs in my Asterisk server ;-)
