Do Slingshot offer new user with free VOIP similar to World exchange ?

AFAIK Xnet will provide new  user with a free /new VOIP number (not Naked DSL). As long as PAP2T is availabe?

Only with their Naked DSL product, which is more expensive from memory.

Xnet is cheaper, if you only download a small amount of data, if you require moew data then Slingshot is cheaper.

The iTalk can be added to any Slingshot plan for $10. With I talk you still have to pay for your phones data ontop of the call cost, Xnet doesn't count this data against your cap.

Note that the ISP will start offering new plans soon (Febuary) I think both Xnet, Slingshot, IHug Vodafone are all about to offer new competivate plans, so be careful about getting into a locked contract today.

I have heard nothing about the use of PAP2T on Slingshot.

From memory I can join Xnet with no contract , whereas Slingshot lock you in a 12 month contract ?

The upside is, I like Slingshot purchasing data block option which is cheaper than Xnet. Also Slingshot will be offering
cheaper off peak data block that's a plus.
