Which telephone provider?

Postby Florian » Wed, 05 Jul 2006 6:24 pm

Hi everybody,

I need to register a telephone line for the office.

Which provider (or even two?) would you choose if 80%+ of your outgoing calls are overseas calls?

Who can help?

Thanks for your efforts in advance!

Best regards
Florian

For business skype sucks. Not clear most of the times. When that happens not very professional but more like fly-by-nite business or shady business.

i agree with sundaymorningstaple, skype can be very unpredictable. Skypeout has at times very choppy (thus unprofessional) call quality.

How i do it:
Singtel for local call
Zone1511 for idd call and fax (and also idd with my mobile)
Skype, if it is not that important.

All lines are open. :D

I fully agree with you that Starhub broadband should be subscribe as they offer free subscription for voip, both local & idd calls allowed to be made from the broadband phone and individual tel number given by them. very useful and since ya probably need to subscribe for broadband service then why pay extra subcription fees when ya can make some savings?

Take Care & Cheers!
