True Global Calling

Posted by activemind on December 11, 2006

For those of you who know me personally, know it very well that I am big on voip. Not just because I am a geek and its a cool thing. I feel that voip is the next thing that will change the way we communicate. I still remember the time when we had to pay by the min for long distance calls here in the country and no I am not talking ages back….I am talking 4-5 years back. Now, 99% of the cellphone plans come with unlimited long distance. I think that day is not very far off when you would be able to pick up your phone and dial any where on the this earth and talk for as long as you want…all on one flat rate, no by the min payments. Infact you can do it today by using clients like Y! messenger or Skype but not using your cellphone or POTS. There are a couple of VOIP providers which have a world unlimited plan but thats limited to a couple of EU countries and a couple of Asia-Pac countries. But thats not what I am talking about. I am talking about ANYWHERE. It has taken us 5 yrs to reach this mark that you can call anywhere in the country now or if you have a VOIP phone then you can call *some* countries unlimited, lets see how long it takes us to achieve the next milestone.
Oh yeah!! As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts, I did go ahead and set up a full fledged Asterisk PBX. Its up and running now and fully functional. I will write more about it in a later post.
So long….

Its been ages since I put up my last post….I will have to lookup the date when I last posted. Well life goes on as usual and yeah for all of you asking for the Cingular Extension I was working on..,,,I dont think it is coming. I have just kind of lost interest in it. I dont think there are too many people who want it plus I dont think I am motivated to finish it up. If any of you wants the code, please drop me a email and I will be more than happy to pass it on….it partly work but needs some tweaks here and there!!!
So there….after dragging my feet for so long….I said it 🙂
