Free World Dialup, which is found through http://www.pulver.com, is a free VoIP service that allows the customers that have a cable modem or who are digital subscribers to make local, long-distance, and even international calls - FREE. This company’s claim is that the customer will pay no fee. Because they own their own facility, this company has recently made a request to the FCC to rule them out as a telecommunication company since this type of company is under strict regulations.
AT&T Corporation is even trying to get on the bandwagon in offering free VoIP services. With tight FCC restrictions, these companies may need to battle their way through a little more, but they certainly see the advantage and realize the need to offer customers the same free VoIP services as other companies if they want to remain a competitor.
One problem with most free voip services is that you cannot call regular phone numbers. For most people free voip services really isn’t practical so they will need to subscribe to a voip service like Vonage, Packet8, MyPhoneCompany, Gee-Fon or others. With these services you can get a local phone number for as little as $9.95 per month or unlimited long distance plus every feature imaginable for $35 per month.
