Good "Great price, great features, supports SIP profile for ATA/PBX's"
Bad "$50 for SIP Profile, Softphone leaves a bit to be desired"
Overall "Great alternative to POTS"

Value for money:

Have a Cisco Unified Call Manager Express / Unity Express VoIP setup running on a Cisco 2811 ISR and Cisco IP Phone 7941-GE/7961 SCCP end points. Wanted to test out the SIP functionality and see how ready SIP was to replace a home phone line.

The FreePhoneLine.ca softphone leaves a little to be desired, but for $50 up front you can get the SIP profile and dump that into any SIP-based PBX.

Quality has been very good in tandem with a 5 Mbps Teksavvy ADSL2 link.

Ordering process was quick and easy, and no BS. Had a local callable DID in about 20 minutes. All in all, a great alternative to paying for overpriced POTS service.

Just make sure to use your line - it expires if not used in 60 days and your DID is released back for resale.
