Anybody using VoipCheap? Opinions please
I have been using Skype for quite some time but this service offers FREE calls to landlines and a FREE phone number so landlines can call me.
Has anyone got experience of this company?

Skype costs me 1.1p a minute to call landlines, so free is cheaper. Skype also charge for SkypeIn, this one doesn't.
Skype is expensive for 0845 numers, this one is 3p a minute, so that's cheaper.
I've downloaded it, no conflict with Skype, but I have to credit them �10 before I can make free calls for more than 1 minute!
I used them when they first came out - and you only had to top up your account with �1.00. I used it to call a mate in Australia and connection was fine.
That said, I have not renewed my contract for two main reasons:
- I don't really call anyone abroad - if I called my mate in Aus a lot, then I would think it worthwhile.
- I prefer a cordless phone. I have a large house and like to wander round it whilst on the phone - not something you can do with VOIP.
Personally I use www.1899.com which ahs a 3p connection charge, but after that normal landline calls are free. This means that I can chat to a mate for 59 minutes in anyy part of the country for 3p. Much more worthwhile than Skype and more convenient to use than voipcheap.
