Hi,

I was just looking at different options for ip-telephony for home, and from reading, it sounds like SIP could be very attractive for my business as well. Is anyone using anything like that now?

Another option would be Skype, but they are not so cheap for calls within Sweden, and in particular to mobiles. And things that are included with others cost extra with skype (incoming number, voicemail etc). The skype client on Windows mobile has not impressed me.

To me it sounds like everything I would want in SIP - decent quality, decent rates, the possibility to have several incoming numbers, to the possibiltity to call from any computer/mobile - and/or a traditional phone. The possibility to use the account when on the road...

And then - the provide I looked at also includes voicemail > e-mail, web interface and incoming faxes > email.

Hugo-

I use Skype for both my Home & Business lines and absolutely love it.
(although I may be biased since I am a former employee of eBay)

The software (both Mac & PC) is not great,
but once you pick up some VOIP hardware
(I use the Philips Cordless Skype phone)
It works flawlessly.

The rates are great here in Canada & US, but I have noticed that overseas calls can sometimes be cheaper through other providers.
