I'm getting somewhat tired of VOIP companies whose call quality is dire (yes
Finarea/Betamax I'm looking at you). And even telcos who aren't VOIP
companies (Primus, Giffgaff) run some international calls over cheap'n'nasty
VOIP links. In some cases they just don't work.
So I'm looking around for alternative providers who might actually have
decent call quality - that probably means doing some...

Is the way VOIP caller ID displayed (or not) simply down to the way the

on call routes further up the chain?

| || || | "Early Media"
Are there any OFCOM rules about what you can send via "Early Media"?
Messages so delivered, that are not call supervision tones or
announcements, add up to lost revenue for the originating network, and
seems akin to phreaking.

I noticed that my Gigaset is not registering with VoipCheap at the moment. I
can recall no similar problems before this afternoon and over many months. I
found that all my settings were pointing to sip.voipcheap.co.uk while their
web site now recommends sip.voipcheap.com, so I changed those settings but
still see no registration.
Does anyone else use this provider and, if so, are you having any...

Agreed 100% but even when I keep "sticking" ALWAYS ON in there, it
doesn't do anything.
That's surely a bug, although if you've ever managed to receive a call then
I would think it's a user interface display bug, as the phone would surely
ignore incoming calls if it didn't think it was registered.
I see no evidence of anything being sent out, because the NAT...

| || || | Spanish VOIP geographical number + provider recommendations please
I would appreciate advice on which company to use for a single user
VOIP service (using a standard VOIP adapter) which can supply a VOIP
Service and Spanish Geographical (standard rate) phone number. So far
the best I can find was Gradwell at £9 a month rental for the Spanish
number (or £12 a month Voiptalk) + the call cost etc. A English
speaking company would be a BIG plus, for me.

I love my Fritzbox 7170 and don't wish to lose the use of it. However,
fibre broadband is available to me and the high speeds available are
very tempting :-)
I don't think the 7170 can be used as the router on a fibre network?
Has anyone here connected one to a fibre network (mine would be Virgin)?
Advice will be much appreciated.
