Resumee after using Voipdiscount for 11 days
« on: August 24, 2008, 07:04:36 PM »
The initial payment is 12,50 Euros. The balance went down from 10,00 to 9,34 Euros, as I predicted it would. So much for "free" calling. Use it too much and they charge 1 cent or 50 Satang per minute.

Excellent for all who need to call Thailand from overseas or call back home from an internet cafe to one of the countries listed. 72 de Chris HS0ZFE

Hi Chris,

The rate of your call is shown during the call.
You should see "this call is free" (for numbers that are advertised as free, e.g. landlines in Eu and US) OR "fair use policy exceeded + the rate you are charged"

Voipdiscount is operated by a company called Betamax located in Germany.
They also run a number of similar brands such as voipbuster, nohnoh, voipcheap etc ... with similar rates and service.

Customer support is non-existing, but given the price it still is acceptable deal I would say.

Update: 300 minutes per week with Voipdiscount - then you pay by the minute

Mni tnx fer ur info. My problem has been that often the "this call is free" appears but after 55 minutes, you see they  s t i l l  charged you  >:(

Anyhow, those who call America can consider Skype. 10,000 minutes per month and a $ 30.00 p.a. voice mail number.

Wishing you all a better 2009, good DXing and see you on the bands!

You can get extra Freedays by buying credit when you have no free days left then normal rates apply. so that is better.

Guys,

I stopped using any Betamax software and am happier with SKYPE's country or world flatrates. EUR 8.95 for 1 month and 50 countries. Including mobile phones in Thailand, which really helps  ;)

For the odd emergency call overseas, try www.nonoh.net if you are next to a landline phone.
