    Using VoIP

    Does anyone use voip for business purposes to do both local and international call's?Maybe something like mweb's voip service?

    We just found that having the computer and telephone on the voip line did not work. The calls faded every now and again. Too many hassles. If the computer server was down, then sometimes the telephone lines did not work etc etc etc. But the worst was the fading of the calls. Since we separated the two we do not have any more hassles. If a line goes down we phone Telkom and their service has also improved dramatically this year.

    I also tried voip, but for phones only. After a frustrating four months of fading and lost calls I too am back to Telkom and a cellphone router. Normal Telkom DSL line, I think.
