    On checking Whirlpool there are others who are not happy with this service. Also bear in mind if you reach the fair use limit, you get your service disconnected, not slowed down (yes its hard to "slow down" your voip. But there is no warning here. So relying on this as your only call method could create an issue. One Whirlpoolain raised issues with the call limit, being lower and that calls that do not properly connect (and need to be redialed) may also be counted in the total 300 calls. http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=905009 Also 300 calls = $30 of value at 10c a call (most VOIP provider standard cost), so in effect you are getting calls at 5c each. If you only make 150 calls then there is no gain, under that number it costs you more, So factor your calling pattern into this deal. You also need to get a Voip ATA box which they don't seem to supply - you buy one at your computer shop and configure it yourself as for Whirlpoolians liking the service some do some don't (but thats like all VOIP providers) http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-search.cfm?s=121709&r=7867641 No big deal as long as you understand the rules of the game...
