After a recent visit to the control panel in my Eurovoice account I have discovered a nice surprise: A new tab has made his way on the interface named “Blink”. Clicking on it will give you the option to install or configure Blink to your computer with your Eurovoice account. Continue reading
The first VoIP provider that I’m going to present is Smartcall. The choice was not made totally random as this provider was also the first that introduced me to the world of VoIP back in Romania.
Bellow is a small questionnaire with some basic things that I think each provider should have:
|Sound quality||Ok, I never had any problems with the connection.|
|The prices||Are great, if you have your friends in Romtelecom. They will charge you between 0.01 E – 0.02 E in the Romtelecom network and with 0.025 E for other landlines. The list of all connection prices can be found here: http://www.smartcall.ro/tarife/tarife%20conectare%20directa%20-%2010-july-2007.pdf|
|Are the phone calls in the provider’s network free?||Yes!|
|Does it have a Voice mail?||Yes! *
It is advertised but I did not see the option on the configuration platform
|Does it have a cost control service?||Yes!|
|Does it have a STUN service?||Yes!|
|Can you buy the credit On-Line?||Yes!|
The good stuff:
And also that they have a STUN server! Yes, believe it or not, this is not a common thing on the VoIP providers in Romania.
This is the introductory article, from a series of five, in which I will write about the main VoIP providers that operate in my country and I have used or I’m currently using.
This will be of much help to those of you who want a free RO number for various reasons (you have left the country, you need a landline number that resembles a pre-pay SIM, etc.)
I will start with some details about the VoIP technology. First of all how is it possible to even get a landline Romanian number without staying in the same country? Well the answer is simple: Internet! The “telephone” – the server that holds your telephone number can be accessed for free* via the Internet thus reducing the install costs of a new line almost to 0.
