Voip with Webcall
Welllll, it has taken a long time but Saskatoon phone numbers have arrived with a reasonably priced Voip service. With Webcall you get unlimited local calling, and unlimited calling to all Webcall cities (Abbotsford, Kamloops, Edmonton, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Prince Albert, Vancouver, Prince George, Victoria). Long distance is 4 cents a minute. Of course you get a slew of calling features like voice mail and caller id. All this for $15.95 a month!
In an odd twist the Webcall service is provided by Navigata, a Sasktel subsidury. They have offered Saskatoon numbers for awhile but didn’t offer the cheapest plan for Saskatchewan phone numbers. Not until the Harper government shut down a crtc ruling regulating the phone companies.
After one day of use I’d have to say I’m pretty impressed. The system works just like a phone should.
