been using the service now foe 6-7 months, buying good voip dsl modem a Thomson 780wl and service has been great - the initial 50 to set up files 30 to port my home number, free included of every feature you could want. I have heard this company slammed on many forums on the internet - but i am a VERY happy customer

I was referred to freephoneline.ca by a friend. We both use voipdiscount.com and i still do. I also use freephoneline for a secondary line. Software works great but better if you have your own ATA.

Free voicemail, free DID #, 911 access...Can't complain. $50 up front for sip access and your set.

Will update as time passes and expirence changes etc. I left Tech support rating at 3 because i haven't needed tech support yet and cannot rate what i haven't tried.

FreePhoneLine has a reasonable VOIP service. The sound is clear, and almost as good as a POTS connection. There was a bit of confusion over the analogue telephone adapter I purchased, and over the forwarding of ports on my router. When e-mailing, calling technical support, or posting on their own forums, they are always professional, and courteous.

Heard about this service on RFD's forums so I decided to give it a shot. Sign up was easy. All they did was call up a phone number you have on hand (A cell phone number worked fine here!) After that they gave me a Vancouver area number (778).

The only bugger is that this VoIP service doesn't have udp transversal, so this means you need to configure your router to forward two ports (which are UDP 13000-13001) to your computer's softphone or ATA device. This means if you bring your laptop to an University that NATs IP's, then this service is just as useful as it gets.

Hey, what do you expect when they give you a phone line for like next to nothing?
