Hi Guys,


I have been looking to move to potentially Stuff Fibre they have a Voice App that keeps your landline.


We make:


  • Calls to family and from family in NZ and Australia.
  • Calls to Mobile to Home.
  • Calls to Home from Mobile.

My better half is not to happy about abandoning the landline as the last time we did this years ago under ADSL and Orcon the calls were rubbish. I have used VOIP for years at work and now Skype for Business so I know its normal these days.


I'm guessing this uses WiFi / Mobile Data, can I run the calls into a physical phone through this service rather than just to the mobile, if so what are the options and the costs.


It will make it easier to make the sell :).

Just tell them that Spark are going to dump Copper PSTN in the next few years anyway...




Stuff say that local/national calls are free, but they don't allow international or calls to mobiles


but you could also use any NZ voip provider over the top, 2talk Wxc etc, and use zoiper or similar  to send the calls to you mobile

Thanks Guys,


Just talked to 2talk pricing here 


Add $10 for 100 Mobile minutes.


Told I could get ATA (Analog Telephone Adapter) device preconfigured for $130 or get once from PBTech etc. e.g.


This will solve the issue I'm sure.
