    Hi all,

    Moving to NZ in the next few months... one way trip :)

    Any views on a voip system to call the UK for minimum costs ? Sipgte looks
    good.. but then voipbuster UK calls are free. hmm..

    The UK end will need to call me in NZ also.. preferably a local call from a
    BT line.

    Thanks,

    Doz

    Sipgate to Sipgate calls are also free, so if whoever you want to call or
    who calls you has one it's completely free both ways. Of course this
    applies to other VoIP suppliers, before the trolls jump on me.

    See above. Note that you need a UK IP address to register a normal
    geographic number, so do it before you leave..!

    Sorry to hijack the thread.

    Are they free if you dial the PSTN number, or only if you dial the 7 digit
    SIP ID?

    For a list of suppliers have a look here

    http://www.voip-info.org/tiki-index.php?page=VOIP Service Providers Residential

    But using a UK or EU based supplier you may have a serious latancy issue.

    The other issue may be the connection you get in NZ, Where I lived we had
    radio links. But you should be fine in the Cities

    How much would sipgate cost? Is there a "rental" type cost per month ? Any
    specialist routers needed ?

    The UK end would have only a BT line.. no PC there.

    Regards,

    I've only done it once, and it was free for calling the PSTN number (got
    translatesd to the SIP ID number on the bill).

    Cost to you? New Zealand to the UK tariff? Consult their website.

    If by 'rental' you mean some sort of standing charge, there is none.
    Again, consult their website.

    Any type of router is suitable.

    > The UK end would have only a BT line.. no PC there.


    Choose one of the UK PSTN numbers offered on Sipgate's website. The UK
    end phones you from their BT/TalkTalk/cable/mobile etc line at whatever
    rate prevails for a call to that number. No PC is needed.

    calls to many countrys also including China you don't get ANY free
    calls to anywhere with Sipgate except to other Sipgate customers who
    are a dying breed .Mind you they have one customer or is it an
    employee who will stay with them for ever and a day .

    Both. In fact you have to dial the full PSTN number if the SIP ID's are on
    different domains, i.e. German <> UK.

    I have and I know it isn't working. You can't call several providers from
    FWD at the moment, not just Sipgate.

    Sipgate to FWD works fine though.

    It's a FWD problem not Sipgate. Try calling from FWD to other providers as
    well.
