Use your PlusNet broadband service to make national and international calls for FREE


Now, if I want to phone someone in the USA, does that mean they have to be a Plus Net customer?

Hi,

I've raised this with the content team to change.

Making International calls

Hi,

I talked to Support last night and was told that we can only connect to Plus talk customers at the moment.
Having tried various non Plus Talk numbers, including trying via FWD, and being repeatedly told the "extension is not available" I have to agree with him!

Having been able to connect to 7000 successfully I assume I'm set up correctly.

I'd like to check my set-up in a live situation, so if anyone else wants to do the same, e-mail me for my number.

Making International calls

Hi,

Yes, at the moment you can just call PlusNet customers. We will be adding peering links with some other SIP networks very shortly and also add the ability to call landlines and mobiles.

If the 7000 number works then I'd be pretty confident you were set up correctly. I don't actually have a headset to make a call to you, but I'm sure someone will be happy to oblige.

We are continuing to work with other SIP providers, UK and Worldwide, to form peering partnerships.

An up to date list of peered providers can be found in the Using PlusTalk FAQ.

These now include

* CallUK **285 (CUK)
* Gradwell **472 (GRA)
* Gossiptel **467 (GOS)

You can call users of these services for free with PlusTalk.


To check the status of peered providors see the sticky at the head of this forum.

Making International calls

At the moment you will be able to make international calls free of charge to someone using one of the SIP providers we have peered with.

In the next phase you will be able to call landlines and mobiles as well as SIP phones.
