Hello

With Sipgate closing on the 31/12/2014 does anyone have any suggestions of a good VoIP Provider that offers PAYG services like Sipgate?


We’re sorry to hear that Sipgate is closing its residential service.

For those customers now looking for an alternative provider, Voipfone is able to port Sipgate numbers and will do this for free to help out those affected by the change.

For information about how to do this, please email [email protected]

The porting fees will be waived for Sipgate customers.

Regards,

Voipfone Customer Service

Like many here I have been a Sipgate customer for probably a decade or more although until now barely use it.

The single advantage that is has is that Sipgate-Sipgate calls are free. My daughter over 250 miles away has one of my numbers, I have another so it avoids having to ring her mobile at exorbitant coast.

Does anyone know if there is another VoIP provider that offers a similar 'in house free calls' option?

Yes, BT - at least on the plans I have.

Ah no, not quite so easy.

My daughter is on Virgin and despite supposedly having a 'new' number she is still getting loads of calls for a previous user of the number and bucket loads of spam calls on top. Result - she doesn't use the VM line, and VM are not really interested.

That means that without a VoIP line the only way we can contact her is on her mobile - and via BT that cost silly money. I do use 18185 but even that is quite expensive.

It would be a good start if she could sign up and get a number at no charge with a VoIP provider so at least we can ring her: she can use her (contract) mobile to call us - as indeed she does now. Then if she wants to use it to make calls it is relatively simple.

AAPOI I haven't had a mail from Sipgate either so have raised a query with them.

You miss the point.

BT has a Broadband Talk (VOIP) product - if you can find out how to order it.

I use the Business variant on two different plans -fixed fee and PAYG with both offering free calls to other users.

No longer available to new users as HH3 and the later 4 and 5 did not have VoIP capability. A softfone version was/is available to people registered before a date in 2008 but it is not compatible with W7 or W8.

So back to square one methinks?

So, what about a pair of BT Business VOIP lines? £5/month with 500 minutes? which you can use for normal calls plus free BT to BT?

http://business.bt.com/phone-services/voip/

All you then need is a VOIP adapter/phone for each.

Actually £6/month (inc VAT) and the following:
In order to sign up to our business VoIP service, you will need a BT Business phone line and a dedicated BT Business Broadband connection, with a BT Business Hub. To use Broadband Voice you will need to buy or rent the Cisco SPA303 IP Phone from BT.
Not really a viable solution for the OP smile
