VoipGain.com is one of many VoIP services from Betamax. The new VoIP service is very tempting as it is offering cheaper international calling rates with free international calls to selected destinations. However the strategy is very similar to providing few free calls for advertising themselves and thus easily attracting customers. The attacting advantages of VoIPGain.com are:
- VoIPGain offers free international calls to nearly 35 destinations. Offer of this kind is provided by very few VoIP service providers.
- Very cheap call rates: Making a call to any mobile or landline in India, just costs 1.2 cents per minute and calling any mobile or landline to USA is free for unlimited duration…
- Free calling is provided to even those countries like, China or Malaysia, where no other VoIP service offers free calling.
- You can access full SIP support from VoIPGain. So you can use the service with SIP Softphone and also with a VoIP adapter.
You can also use the service without SIP settings, by downloading VoIPGain software. However the SIP settings for this service are as:
SIP port is “5060”
Registrar is “sip.voipgain.com”
Proxy server is “sip.voipgain.com”
Outbound proxy server: leave this one empty
Account name should be your VoipGain username
Password: Give your secret VoIPGain password
Display name/number: this will be your VoipGain username or voipnumber
Stunserver (option): stun.voipgain.com
But the disadvantage of this service is that if you use phone to phone feature for this service, you are required to pay for both the connections. VoIPGain, like other services, provides local access number and this facility is valid for many countries like USA, UK, Australia and Canada. The service has various attracting features and it is worthwhile to give it a try…
