Passion Pours Out About AT&T CallVantage Getting Hung Up
T-Mobile 3G USB Stick-First Impressions

FreshTel Coming Online More and More

Australian VoIP player Freshtel, has been quietly making some moves. I just spotted their Mac Beta, but was more impressed with their calling rates.

Doing some quick math, I quickly realized that for 1.2 cents per minute in USA currency, one can be making international phone calls. Only drawback is you can't add a USA DID (yet). With their easy to use configuration guides you can certainly configure any SIP device or softclient like CounterPath's EyeBeam or Bria as well, as use their own softphone.

They are promising an iPhone app shortly, and appear to be a coming player in the world of VoIP, and Mobile VoIP as their app now works on many Nokia N & Ehandsets ala Truphone and Gizmo5.

My prediction: Watch for more foreign carriers and SIP based companies to enter the USA market with advanced services and better International pricing.
