    SCAN launches TalkScan VoIP

    What's this? VoIP from SCAN? Why yes, yes it is!
    The new service allows free Internet based calls with Scan's telephony software, with a top-up based credit scheme for calls to landlines around the world.

    A little under £6 gets you started with TalkScan's SoftPhone software, which can then be used to make calls to other SoftPhone users. A list of call tariffs is on the TalkScan website so you can see how much it will be to ring various countries and telephone networks. For example you can call Botswana for a tidy 12p a minute.

    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    I know you guys have a specail relationship with scan, but http://www.voipcheap.co.uk/en/rates.html is much better price. Half the price if you call botswana.

    Free to UK landlines.... just so much cheaper.

    from a business (or linux user) perspective, though, scan's offering is a real open-standard SIP service. voipcheap's SIP service costs a fair bit more than their skype clone - although still cheaper for botswana than scan

    http://www.sipgate.co.uk/user/tarife.php Very well established SIP provider. Still cheaper.

    http://www.sipdiscount.com/en/rates.html which is the sip version of voipcheap. Rates may look higher but are often cheaper as its euro cents per minute rather than pence.

    Also sipgate give you a "physical" uk exchange landline number (i.e. 0207, 01325...) not an 0845 version which appears to be what talkscan offer (please correct me if I am wrong here).
