Free & Cheap VOIP calls to International Destinations
I’m sure most of us have heard of Skype, the most popular VOIP calls, offering cheap PC-to-landlines calls to international countries worldwide. No doubt the quality of the service has been very good, and the rates are pretty fair and reasonable. However, have anyone considered that VOIP calls can be free?
Oh yes, there are (perhaps, not to every single destination in the world) some that are offering free VOIP calls to landlines. In addition, those non-free calls, normally have cheaper rates compared to Skype’s, when dialling to similar destinations. Basically, what I have here are three piece of cool softwares – VoipBuster, VoipCheap and VoipStunt!!
I have written about VoipBuster and VoipStunt in SoftSift.
However, I have yet to include VoipStunt into the list of free calls. While testing out these few softwares, I realise that all of them belong to the same company, sharing the same database. For instance, if I were to register a user name in VoipBuster, I could not use the same user name to register in VoipCheap.
Installation of these software is pretty much straightforward. Download the beta release (as there is only one download anyway) and click setup to install. You will need to select a user name, password and an email address to register yourself onto the database.
So, what are countries that are offering Free Calls by VoipStunt? Here’s the list.
Free calls to any regular landline in:
- Hong Kong
- New Zealand
- South Korea
- United Kingdom
- United States
Note, don’t feel despair if you find that your country is not listed. Visit VoipBuster or VoipCheap website to find out if your country is listed for FREE calls. Nonetheless, these 3 Voips have so far been the cheapest I have come across.
Strong Note: You need a good broadband service in order for the Voip software to work decently well. I find that their data compression wasn’t too good, and as such uplink tends to be a little problematic. I do have experience users not being able to hear me when I have a slow uplink connection.
