VoIP rocks!

Posted by rom on August 8, 2004

Just got a call from a Vonage subscriber and mind you, the quality of the connection is really good! It is even better than those you get when using prepaid phone cards! There is a slight echo, though, but tolerable. What makes it even better is that it was a FREE call! Cool, huh?

There are lots of VoIP providers out there. I use SIPPhone for testing the connection and it is working as expected. I cannot wait for Vonage to release their WiFi handset. Once they do that, I will surely get one (depending on the price, of course. The CISCO 7920 costs more than US$700!). Imagine being able to talk to my family, relatives and friends overseas for free or a fraction of the cost of overseas calls here. Ain’t that great?
