Voip with Webcall

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.

    But wait until you call you isp about your high speed modem.

    Tech – “I would like to power cycle your Modem now to get it to resend with an IP address to your wireless router.”

    CICK!! Call Ends.

    You call back to you ISP.


    Tech – “You were power cycling the modem when you lost your conection?”

    Customer – “Yes…”

    Tech – “Do you have VoIP phone service?”

    Customer – “Yes…”

    Now depending on how importent the cutomer thinks heis in the universe the call could take many different derections.

    The moral is be nice to your technical support reps or we could be bloging about you.
